'm trying to get hold of a cheap one.

Is the Draper one from Machine Mart any good?

Sorry I don't know the answer, but before getting an auger consider your soil. The flints in ours make them very difficult to use.

That was my first thought,but seeing the name Draper,possibly John`s looking for an auger to bore a hole in a post,ie.for a gate hanger?

If it is for the ground then you tend to get the best type of auger by going to a man who hires the machines out, if it breaks then he should send you another to do the job. Make sure you have a tractor man enough to drive it. If it is a post auger as Ty Gwyn says then Draper is as good as any other make I expect. Our company deals with Draper, and they are good with replacements if it all goes wrong.

I can't comment on augers as I don't use them, but generally speaking Draper tools, although not top of the range, are usually fit for purpose and worthy DIY kit.
19.19 seems a fair enough price. Much cheaper I'd be questioning the quality.
