A Handheld electric shovel with auger? Yes, I was skeptical at first as well, but the RotoShovel is quite impressive.
The RotoShovel is the world’s first lithium-ion battery-powered automatic handheld shovel with an auger. Ideal for homeowners, DIY gardeners, and professionals, the RotoShovel reinvents the shovel and takes the work out of gardening and landscaping. RotoShovel is perfect for scooping and planting bulbs, flowers, or veggies; digging holes for signs and posts; and installing small trees and shrubs, and more.
Powered with a lithium-ion battery, this auger shovel drives into the ground, creating holes that are three inches in diameter and seven inches deep. It’s ideal for bulbs, perfect for flowers, planting flats, and vegetables.
The 22″ long automatic shovel is constructed with quality metals like aluminum and steel. These metals work together to create a durable product that lasts. The handheld auger and shovel are steel, while the scoop portion is aluminum.
This sturdy power shovel also has safety features included. It stops when it hits a rock or a root in the ground. Additionally, in order for the tool to operate, the thumb trigger must be held to maintain movement. If the battery-powered auger is dropped or you release the trigger, the power to the motor immediately turns off.
With a battery life of 2 hours, you’ll have plenty of time to install new plants in a garden. The removable battery takes about an hour to charge, but if you’ve got a big job, you can purchase separate battery packs that will keep your RotoShovel going while the other battery charges.
