The Earth Drill Post Hole Auger – Definitely Made In America

One of our personal joys in writing for this blog is the rare opportunity to talk to a guy who has “An Idea” and then sees it through to a product. Such is the case with Keith Sands from Oklahoma who though there must be a better way to drill post holes than traditional 1 or 2 man post hole augers. Some time ago he created the EZ-Way Earth Drill which has a simple crank mechanism, dolly style wheels and aggressive gearing to drill a post hole up to 10”x28” with literally no sweat. The unit also saves from any stress on the back in setup or operation, no dangerous jerking when the drill catches a root or rock and produces a very clean hole, quickly.

The Earth Drill is easily configured for use with a 2HP Gas Motor or several models of heavy duty electric drills, he said the Milwaukee or Makita models work the best but the Ridgid also works well and is less expensive. On the website the unit with you option of motor is around $1400 but said the unit can be sold without a gas motor or drill if the customer already has a suitable power supply. Idea for heavy users and rental houses, also a very reasonable price if the unit works half as well as it does in the video.

With a background in welding/fabricating and a lot of experience digging post holes this product was a natural fit for Keith. It’s awesome to see him going straight to market with a website and youtube video, even if they aren’t as polished as we have seen. It is our hope more folks will follow suite and take their ideas and see them through to real products like Keith.

If you want a Milwaukee, Makita or Bosch electric drill motor that will work in your new EZ-Way Earth Drill give the folks at Ohio Power Tool a call 800-242-4424 and they would be happy to set you up.

      Unfortunately, the EZ-Way Earth drill is impossible to find. We have no idea where the nice gentleman who was making and demonstrating the product went, but we have not seen or been able to get a hold of him for quite some time.

      My wife and I formed an LLC with Keith Sands to manufacture this machine. The business venture quickly ended in litigation. We have two prototypes that we would like to sell, with or without motors. Charles Sellens; 513 Andrew St; Dodge City, KS 67801 (620) 227-3816
