Digging in your garden just got a whole lot easier with the Rotoshovel!

NEWS – Rotoshovel to the rescue! No more back-breaking arduous digging with a shovel in the backyard to plant your garden. This innovative digging tool was created by Rick Goren and is a cordless electric handheld shovel and auger in one. It uses a rechargeable 12-volt lithium-ion battery that will run for 1.5 hours and the auger and shovel are made of metal. This wonder tool digs holes 3″ in diameter and up to 7″ deep. As a safety measure, the auger will automatically turn off if the thumb trigger is released or it encounters roots or rocks. I’m not sure that this would work for me since we have a lot of rocks in our “dirt”, but if you don’t have this problem, then it may make quick work of your gardening. The Rotoshovel Electric Handheld Shovel and Auger is available from Amazon for $134.99.

    I agree with you that this would probably not be good if there are a lot of rocks, but if the soil is rock-free, then a shovel would make quick work of digging a hole 🙂

    Either way, this seems super overkill for most gardeners…with the exception of those who may be up there in age, but still want to be active in the garden.

    1. I’ve been using an auger I bought years ago and which fits any cordless drill. Works perfectly, is indestructible, accomplishes the same thing, and only cost 8 bucks!
