The other thing with the auger i rented, the exhaust went straight into my body when operating it from one side. It was extremely loud.
another problem with them is breaking your wrist because of a root. but most of them have a clutch system than will stop the spinning when the safety bar hits your body. not fool or accident proof though. I actually saw a young man go for a spin once around the auger. he had to take a week off because of a serious sprain.
burying the damn things is no fun either
