Ordered me an EA-400 Echo earth auger w/ 10 inch bit last week and picked it up yesterday. Can't wait to try it out. It will probably be next week before I do though as I am busy through Thursday and then I am headed to Savannah for my great grandmother's 100th Birthday. Yep 100 and still lives in her own house by herself. She's also always loved a well manicured lawn and has paid a few lawn services over the past 30 years since my great grandfather passed away. Anyways back to the auger-For you guys and gals that also do landscaping I will post again sometime next week to let you know how she performs.
