Using a drill and auger bit to excavate for a sump pump basin

(This is a re-upload. I mistakenly processed some of my recent videos in FHD instead of UHD and I decided to correct this one.)

This is not a sump-pump installation tutorial, this is just a demonstration of how an auger bit could be used to make digging in a confined space easier.

The auger bit is from https://powerplanter.com/. They advertise "100% designed, manufactured, and distributed in the USA" on their site. I bought the Extended Length Bulb Auger, 3" x 24", with 1/2" Hex Drive. I ordered directly from the manufacturer with free shipping, and it arrived promptly. This is not a sponsored video, but the product and service were good enough they deserve recognition.
