CUMBERLAND, Wis. & LOUISVILLE, Ky. — September 5, 2018 — When the GIE+EXPO convenes next month in Louisville, Ky., attendees at the largest trade show for outdoor power equipment and lawn and garden tools will want to visit Earthquake, booth #4030 to see the Earthquake Power Auger Package. It includes the E43™ Earth Auger Powerhead combined with a heavy-duty 8-inch auger and Earthquake's Flex Coil shock absorber.
“Earthquake is the largest manufacturer of hand-held earth augers in the world,” said Kirk Hyatt, product line manager, Earthquake, the lawn and garden division of Ardisam, Inc. “The Earthquake Power Auger Package offers terrific value on an earth auger powerhead engineered to be reliable and long-lasting and backed by a 5-year limited warranty combined with an 8-inch auger with a fishtail point.”
The centerpiece of the package is the E43™ Earth Auger Powerhead. The E43's ball bearing, alloy gear transmission withstands the rigors of drilling into hard ground. Its large, block-style industrial air filter keeps dust and dirt out to protect engine. The package includes Earthquake's Flex Coil shock absorber, which makes the tough job of drilling easier on the user, as well as an 8-inch auger with a fishtail point and replaceable cutting blades. The package price can save individual customers as much as 20 percent off the open stock items purchased separately from Earthquake.
Ardisam and the Earthquake brand go back to the late 1950s. That’s when three friends — Arnie, Dick and Sam — started using their ingenuity and skills in metal fabrication to build their own power tools so they could get their work done easier, faster and better. Drilling post holes was one of the first problems they tackled.
The rest is history — proud history that honors this heritage of hard work and innovation. Since 1960, Earthquake has manufactured and sold more than 500,000 augers.
