Bulb planting tools

I have used a 1" masonry bit with a domestic quality drill to plant (naturalise) in heavy (uncultivated) soil. Works fine, but the drill started smoking after a time as it is so quick planting this way. Use a heavy duty drill if planting a lot. At the very least I need a trowel even in cultivated soil here.

 Hi,
 
 I always "dib" bulbs in for mass
 planting in Autumn - my "dibber" being 
 a sawn off fork handle with a sharpened
 point. Last year I'd hurt my arm 
 and used a foot powered dibber - a long
 piece of wood with a cross bar 
 for ones foot.
 
 Anyway, I was sent this advertising
 link this week:

 The idea is one uses an electric hand
 drill and this bit to make holes 
 for the bulbs.
 
 Seems unlikely to me.
