The STIHL BT 131 earth auger is a versatile tool capable of drilling holes with a diameter of up to 300 mm. This makes it an ideal choice for various professionals, including gardeners, landscapers and those in the construction industry. It's perfect for tasks such as setting posts, digging planting holes, creating drainage shafts, or taking soil samples. The earth auger's sharp drill bits and spindles with cutting blades are highly efficient and can easily penetrate even stony surfaces.

Powering the BT 131 is the STIHL 4-MIX® engine, which provides the necessary drilling power. Apart from its impressive performance and smooth operation, this engine is low maintenance as it doesn't require oil servicing. It also features an air filter system with a large paper filter, enabling longer cleaning intervals and dependable protection for the engine.

The STIHL BT 131 comes equipped with a single-hand multi-function handle, integrating all engine control functions into the left handle. This design ensures a secure grip during operation. Additionally, the vibration-damped handle frame improves comfort during use. While drilling, the large support cushion provides comfort by remaining in contact with the body. In cases where you encounter a hard layer during your work, the QuickStop drill brake enhances safety.
