I used mine to drill my deck holes, 40 holes for planting lilacs, 20 holes for planting hybrid willows, and at least 50 holes for planting a privet hedge. I put old blades on for ground work and keep a good set for the ice. A couple friends want to borrow it, but I won't borrow it out for others to potentially wreck.
My auger is at least 15 years old. I wouldn't drill in dirt with a new one, though.
