If you are looking for a powerful and lightweight earth/ice auger, turn to the STIHL BT131. This tool features a fuel-efficient engine that will allow you to work longer with fewer refuels than previous models. Plus, with its vertical pleated air filter, this auger offers better air filtration for a longer product life. Its semi-automatic choke lever enables a simplified starting procedure that helps reduce the chance of flooding, while the STIHL Quickstop® auger brake is designed to automatically stop the auger bit from turning if it hits a hard underground impediment. Ideal for professional applications like post-hole digging, fence installation, or large planting projects, this auger also has an ergonomic design for reduced fatigue and improved comfort of operation.
