DDG460 36V Electric Post Hole Borer

Makita DDG460 battery-operated post hole borer with 36V engine

Designed to make holes in the ground, bore fence posts and planting shrubs; ideal for all frequent, small jobs.

The product comes equipped with 2 5ah batteries and dual charger with carrying case.

Particularly suitable for beginners and also for those who want an alternative to the classic internal combustion engines.

The machine has 2 speeds and features reverse motor rotation to easily extract the auger tip from the ground even when it gets stuck.

Auger bit not included

Lithium-Ion battery + charger - carrying case


Battery provided with quick release: the battery can be easily detached and pulled out from the machine, by simply pressing the quick release button.

Voltage: 18V
Amperage: 5 Ah

The practical battery can be recharged at any time, no memory effect (it does not have a tendency to run out after many refills), always a great power.

Handy battery charger included (it connects to the home current just like a normal smartphone).

The battery is connected to the battery charger through the quick release, in the same way as it is connected to the electric chainsaw

You can also purchase additional batteries in order to ensure prolonged an intensive running time.

Therefore, you only need one battery and one battery charger in order to be able to use the full range of equipment offered by Makita.

Advantages of the Lithium battery

LONGER LIFE: up to 3 times higher than the nickel–cadmium batteries, reducing the need to recharge during long periods of use.
Ideal for medium-large gardens.

FULL CHARGE FOR THE ENTIRE BATTERY LIFE: the charge of the lithium-ion batteries does not fade. Unlike nickel-cadmium batteries, which power gradually decreases, lithium-ion batteries’ cells maintain constant power throughout the entire cycle. The same charge for the entire cycle without reducing the motor speed. The battery is running at full
power until its complete exhaustion.

CHARGE DURATION LENGTHNESS: Lithium-ion batteries hold their power for a longer time than the nickel-cadmium ones, with a number of charges 3-4 times greater
and longer storage times with lower battery’s loss. Lithium-ion batteries are rechargeable up to 2000 times!

LIGHTWEIGHT: Lithium-ion batteries have the best power-weight rate. They weight 1/3 of the nickel-cadmium ones.

ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY: Lithium-ion battery-powered tools are recyclable and are produced without heavy metals.

NO MEMORY EFFECT: Lithium-ion batteries can be recharged at any time without negative memory effect. Indeed, they don't fail to provide maximum power even after hundreds of charge cycles.
Few minutes of charge are enough to complete the work.

LOW DISCHARGE RATE: low run down rate (up to 5 times lower than nickel-cadmium batteries) so your lawn mower will be ready to use even after months of storage.

BATTERY CHARGER: the lithium batteries chargers allow to reduce the energy consumption by an average of 35%. Professional long-lasting air filter

Electric motor and controls

Main advantages of the electric motor:

  • More reliable than a petrol engine. It does not have a spark plug, filters, oil dipstick, carburetors, or any component that may cause problems.
  • Zero maintenance
  • Much lighter
  • Lower consumption and drastically reduced operating costs compared to petrol engine models (great results with minimal power required). Moreover, there is no need for the operator to provide fuel (the fuel should always be fresh).
  • Zero vibrations, thanks to the electric motor. Almost all petrol powered machines, which are not equipped with an anti-vibration system on steel springs, have a very high degree of vibration, making the work really unpleasant.
  • Zero smoke emission, zero impact on the environment and, above all, on the operator’s health.
  • Much quieter and therefore pleasant to use than a petrol engine one.

Easy and user-friendly controls that are all located on the handlebar.

Below the machine there is a chuck key for the assembly and disassembly of the auger bits (not included), a LED light that allows you to operate even in low light conditions and a speed switch with 2 speed options.

Low: 350 rpm (recommended for most tasks)

High: 1400 rpm

The side handle can be fixed on both sides and with various adjustments thanks to the numerous screw holes.
