Earthquake makes reliable landscaping tools that are durable enough to withstand many hours of work, but even the toughest pieces of equipment may malfunction and break down. Landscaping tools have many intricate moving parts in them, and those components can wear down over time or break suddenly while working on a particularly tough job.
Earthquake's power augers will dig holes through tough ground materials like gravel and clay, but they'll ultimately suffer problems due to wear and tear. Issues with augers are similar to chainsaw problems as both machines have small, gas-powered engines. Besides the engine issues already discussed, there are potential problems with the auger itself. If the auger fails to turn properly, this may be the result of the choke being left on after the initial engine ignition. It can also be a sign of a worn-out clutch or broken auger transmission. If the auger is slow to cut through soil, then it could be that the auger blades are worn down or broken. These blades can be sharpened if they're not too badly damaged.
Once you've diagnosed your Earthquake chainsaw or power auger’s issue, the next step is to find the replacement parts to make any necessary repairs. Sears PartsDirect makes that easy by providing two ways to search for replacement parts. Search by model number or specific part number.
