You, of course, can use a 110 volt power drill to operate the auger, but in most garden situations, a typical cordless drill, particularly of the 18 volt variety that has a chuck that will fit a 3/8” drill bit is the perfect accessory for using the auger to make holes in the garden soil for the purpose of planting seedlings and bulbs.

Whether your intention is to plant 4-5 bulbs or seedlings or 400-500, this is the absolutely perfect accessory. In order to drill holes to a specific depth it is a good idea to use a piece of electrical tape on one of the vanes of the auger at the specific depth you want to drill, so that it becomes a gauge for drilling subsequent holes. You need to keep in mind, different kinds of bulbs require different depth holes. The rule of thumb generally is 3x’s the diameter of the bulb should be the maximum depth of the hole.
