Expert Review
The Earthquake Dually earth auger allows you to drill holes by yourself or together with another person - it's the world's first one OR two-man gas-powered earth auger. The Earthquake Dually handles extremely well when using two operators. But while other standard two-man powered augers only allow for two-man operation at all times, the Dually can also be run easily with a single operator - a first for powered earth augers. The Earthquake Dually features unique job site handlebars that are specially shaped for its dual-purpose use, with throttle controls mounted on the handlebars in two different user positions giving operators the versatility to control the unit from the position they find most optimal. The handlebars are also virtually indestructible, and are formed into a protective cage that guards the engine on all sides. The Earthquake Dually is powered by a high-RPM 52cc two-stroke Viper® Engine, so the Dually has all of the power you need, whether working alone or with someone else to drill each hole faster. The Dually also features a durable, five-bearing transmission and solid steel heat-treated alloy gears for added strength.
