Iím trying to drill through hard clay and my Little Beaver earth auger just spins and doesnít dig in. Whatís wrong?
First, check for foreign matter around the point and remove this material as necessary. Then, check the condition of the point and blade. If they are dull, reverse them or replace them. If the auger still does not dig, replace the point and standard blade with a carbide blade. The carbide blade digs best in hard clay or asphalt. It can also be used in frozen ground.
