I love this drill kit. Everything I need in one place. The drill itself is easy to use and I love having the video to refer to.

Love it

First up, I am a 55 year old woman, 5 foot 2 and 65 kilos (when I go looking at reviews, I always want to know how similar people to me go with the product). After reading reviews and knowing that my existing drill was a cheap one with not much grunt, I bought the combination Dewalt cordless drill kit and the full power planter kit. I watched the get started video and followed all the instructions. My first job was using the longest power planter attachment; I had just had concrete paths put in and I needed to drill down about 40cm of an inner concrete circle to put a "root guard" around for the tree to be planted inside. I was terrified that I was going to ruin my new concrete path - but I did an awesome job! I had over 6 metres to do, in clay (and it hadn't rained for a while, I probably should have soaked the area for a few days first). Having the handle on the drill was fantastic for control, I was able to get right up to the side of the concrete ring and the power planter made mince meat of the task. My concreter was really impressed (I think he will be buying one now). Yes, I had a sore shoulder at the end, but I did do 6 metres of what was basically a trench with this. It saved me so much time, I can't believe it. I have previously had a small one person petrol auger, but it is dangerously heavy and I have so much trouble controlling it. This power planter will be used in future instead. A great buy!

Dewalt 996 drill kit

A fantastic product. This was a gift to myself and it’s made gardening much easier. I bought it to use with my power planter. The instruction/safety video for use with the power planter was very easy to follow with clear do’s and don’t’s. It’s made planting a new avocado tree much easier as we have clay soil and I can now do jobs myself and not rely on my husband to be digging holes etc. I’m very happy.
