welcome ridge life i'm tim and today we are back at the log home build site and we have got to get a mailbox installed grandma carol has all moved in and it's time for her to start receiving her mail here now to do that we need to dig a post hole and what better to dig a post hole with than a post hole auger gas powered pulse hole auger this is a 63 cc eco ed630 it's not to be confused with echo echo is a very uh popular brand this is i'm sure a chinese knockoff got it off amazon i'm gonna unbox it for you here right here go look at all the attachments that came with it this was the huge set big as i could get with all the attachments open it up see what we've got inside this is again a huge motor look at this thing i love it looks like a husqvarna almost uh you know i think echo is red isn't it this is like husqvarna orange it's probably a very very close knockoff um but 63cc and we got up to a 12 inch post hole hogger let's check those parts out also in the box is a mixing bottle for the 25 to 1 that's a two-stroke motor oil to gasoline we're going to use 89 octane gasoline in our postal auger and you pre-mix it up in here again this is 25 to one you're probably used to 40 to 1 or 50 to 1 in most two-stroke devices now this that calls for 25 to 1 very very odd there comes with a tool accessory kit and of course the instruction manual and what we've got here are three extensions again this was the uh the kit that had all the accessories with it that's why i paid as much as i did but i've got a short medium and long extension that way when you start up here and you're digging a really really deep post hole when you get down you ain't got to hurt your back you put extension on there and you're staying at chest level now speaking of of augers we've got a three inch a six inch an 8 inch and all the way up to this huge 12 inch auger check this thing out and 63 cc is what you need to do something like 12 inch we're gonna go ahead and head to the front of the property where we're gonna put our mailbox now once we get there i'll show you all the materials we're gonna need and get started on the job so we'll see you there before we get into setting up and using our post hole auger go over some materials we're going to need to get our mailbox installed i'm going to have a 4x4 post that's what the mailbox is going to sit on may need a saw to cut it down to size we've got a drill with a attachment for the bolts to get the mailbox attached to the 4x4 we've got some concrete we've got a level to get the post level straight got a good trusty shovel of course got a mixing pan for the concrete got some fuel got some two-stroke oil and we've got some water to mix with the concrete so let's get started in the tool kit bag we've got several things we've got a wrench with a phillips screwdriver on the end we've got a screwdriver bit that's got phillips and uh straight slide that down in there and of course we've got a couple allen wrenches for access for the gearbox and other accessories and we also have an open end wrench now the instructions on this for this machine are not that great i think they came straight from china it translated into english but it says to fill the gearbox with 80 to 98 oil 50 hours change it out 100 hours thereafter i checked this thing over there is not a fill for the gearbox uh there's a drain and the drain is right here i open this up and there is grease in there there is blue thick grease so it comes packed with grease you're good to go there now we just got to do our 25 to 1 ratio of 2 stroke oil with fuel so i'm going to use 89 octane fuel and if you look at the bottle right here you can see you fill your uh fuel up to the 40 to 1 ratio 50 to 1 ratio 25 to 1 ratio so we're going to fill it up to the 25 to 1 ratio and then oil up to the top line that gives us 25 to 1. got our fuel up to the 25 to one line now let's go ahead and get the oil up to the top there we go that tops it right off top line there 25 to 1. we can go and get this mixed up and get it into our engine and then we'll show you the startup procedure so let's let's get this mixed up ready to go pour it in here see if we can get this done without spilling it everywhere again i'm not going to make up too much because i don't think it's going to take too much to get this post hole dug we'll just use one canister get it in here and then we'll do the start-up procedure which should be pretty easy we'll push the fuel bulb five or six times to prime it up there's an air valve over here we're going to slide it forward to the choke position and the instructions again are very very bad so i don't know if this is open or this is open we'll go ahead and try it out figure out which it is and then of course you'll take it halfway once you get it started and then closed up once it warms up we've got it primed up let's go ahead and turn the switch to on uh bring our choke over to full choke i believe this is full choke because it should just get it primed up and then we'll see if it took the choke about halfway well that was pretty simple now let's go ahead and get some attachments on this thing and get to drilling our post holes for our mailbox looking at our three inch auger here you can see the end of it has a drill bit like on the end with a hardened tip you've got a couple blades here that get that gets your initial dig in and the auger itself will bring all that dirt to the surface and easily attaches to your motor gearbox here a little cotter pin goes in like this of course the extensions extend that out you know so you want to bend over with your back and you can put extensions into extensions now you can get a really really deep hole with this auger and all these extensions again this is simple enough just line up your holes here get it lined up over there slide that through get your pin in that's your extension on now we'll go ahead and get the same thing for our auger get the bolt out we want to get it hole lined up once that's lined up should go right through put your pin in and now we are ready to get this thing in the ground before you start digging your hole you want to make sure there's no utilities in the area so call your local utility company have them come out marked i i know that right here is a good clean area i've got cable and pipes on that side of the driveway i'd really prefer to have the mailbox over there but this is the side we're going to put it on and you want to be the appropriate distance away from the road and then once you do that you can start and i'm going to start with a small auger just for demonstration purposes i'll move up to the bigger one more appropriate for uh the 4x4 post i just want to show you how this one works with this extension so we'll get this started and see how easy this digs in got to turn the switch on got the choke over go ahead and get it started that thing dug down easy i'm going to put my post hole excessively far in the ground just so you can see a deep hole so i've got my longer extension and i've got the 12 inch auger and i'm going with a 12 inch auger because um i've got a four inch 4x or 4x4 post and you w
