Post Hole Drill Overview - Earthquake Model e43

The E43 Earth Auger's solid steel, heat treated alloy gears provide maximum power with little maintenance. The handles are coated with a high tech anti-vibration foam to provide comfortable handling.

Isovibe Technology
Isovibe Technology (Shock Absorb Spring) combines mega-power with superior handling. Handling a power auger can be tough, even dangerous work. Blades rotating at high speeds can hit rocks or roots, creating a jarring sensation. That's why Isovibe Technology is so important. The Replaceable Isovibe "Shock Spring" actually absorbs ground shock, slowing the impact between the blade and a rock, root or other obstructions. This anti-recoil mechanism prevents dangerous jolting and bouncing, which could otherwise throw the auger accidentally toward the operator. Isovibe technology makes handling smoother and safer, so you can prevent potential injuries and experience superior power, performance and handling at the same time.
