    I need to plant 230 , 8" mums. I was looking at the Stihl gas powered plant auger. The only problem is the largest auger bit is 5". Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Northern Sells gas post hole diggers. They have a couple of different ones including a two man. You can check them out on the web Northerntool.com

    Depends on the soil you are digging in.
