    Hyundai earth auger HYEA5200X

    Posted by Peter Scott on 20th May 2024

    Bought an earth augur, now about the fourth piece of Hyundai outdoor equipment I've got. Fast delivery, largley clear instructions on use and assembly; with three augurs included and a toolkit, it's quite a lot for the money, so good value. Some of the photo illustrations in the instructions weren't that clear, so would recommend looking at the Youtube video on this product before assembling and using (thanks again to Adrian for an informative video). Only real problem I find with this product is the fact that the exhaust from the engine is facing the user, which seems like quite a design disadvantage if you are using this machine for any length of time. Obviously not good for health and safety. However, quite a powerful machine that saves a lot of work for post hole digging, so definitely recommended overall if you are looking for one of these.

    Great tool

    Had this for about 3 years now and it sure makes life a lot easier when doing fence posts. Easy to start but if you have never used one before take it easy because if you hit something hard it will yank your arm out of its socket, gently does it and you will be fine.

    Great machine. We struggle to do a day without it now if it’s not fencing it’s tree planting!

    We bought this machine completely blind to see if it was any good for planting trees. We wouldn’t be without it now. We can’t put it down it’s now part of the fencing equipment too! Really pleased with it!
