I am looking at your earth auger (24″ X 2.75) for the purposes of chopping pine bar chips, which come in 1″ or larger chunks, into smaller chips (1/4″) for planting. In the same way that a blender or hand mixer might work. The chunks are not hard and can be broken by hand. Do you think this would be successful for that purpose? I cannot spend $250. + for a grinder. Do you have any other ideas or suggestions?
Our EARTH AUGER should do the job fine. If you are grinding the wood chips up in a confined area, it should break them apart at a good rate as long as you use a strong electric power drill on the auger.
