BT 131 Earth Auger

BT 131 Earth Auger

A high performance and safe auger perfect for professionals.

The STIHL BT 131 earth auger is a high performance and lightweight tool professionals need for post-hole digging, fence installation, large planting projects, environmental restoration and construction projects. Featuring a powerful, fuel-efficient engine and a larger fuel tank than previous models, this auger works longer with fewer refuels. It also features a vertical pleated air filter for improved air supply quality and extended service life. Its semi-automatic choke lever enables a simplified starting procedure that reduces the chance of flooding, while the STIHL Quickstop® auger brake is designed to automatically stop the auger bit from turning if it hits a hard underground impediment. With an ergonomic design, the BT 131 delivers control and comfort while reducing fatigue. Don’t miss out on this auger that combines power and performance.
