Hi, How would this go in fairly hard ground with gravel/ small stones?
That should be fine, the auger will cut through fairly well, provided that the stones etc are not too large for the auger to move

Hyundai Post Hole Borer Two-person

Instructions are generic - therefore not entirely accurate for this machine. Fuel exits the priming plunger when laid on its side to start - albeit this is the starting procedure per the instructions. Fuel exits the filler cap when laid in the same (side) position per the instructions. Fuel/oil flooded the air filter and choked the engine. Now have to source a replacement air filter cartridge as machine won't run. Low revving engine delivering insufficient torque to power the 300mm auger - even in soft soil.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Good but not Great

I bought this to dig post holes and it's much better than hand digging them. There are however a couple of design features which make it annoying. 1) Auger cannot be left on its side with any petrol left in it. All of the petrol leaks out. 2) The auger isn't strong enough to use the largest auger bit without first predrilling a hole with the next size down. As it takes a bit of time to switch between auger bits, this is slightly annoying. Smallest and medium auger bit work really well. Lastly, this might be common sense to most people, but the auger bit can't cut through tree roots
