Ameristep 3/8'' Bark Bit Tree Step Drill
Save your money.
This product broke during the first tree step install. If it was made of a better quality material I believe it would work fine but until then save your money. The best bet I have found is to use a closed face wrench as a cheater bar to get some leverage on the step. It works pretty well but still takes some muscle.

not a good buy
I was excited to try this when setting up my stands this year. I was hoping to avoid sweating so much while setting everything up and hoping to save some time. I have an 18 volt Dewalt drill and tried using this on a pine tree. The steps would only go in a little past half way with a fully charged battery. I was very disappointed in it and I've already sent it back. I found it faster to just screw in the steps by hand rather than load another step into the attachment, drill it half way and then finish the rest by hand. I would not recommend this produst to anyone.

Broke the first time I tried to use it
I bought this to help install steps. It snapped in two pieces before the step got 3/4" into the tree. Useless.

Waste of Money
I bought this item in hopes of making it easier to hang treestands. The steps don’t stay in place when positioned in the bit. It was easier and faster to screw in the steps by hand. This product is a waste of money.
