Right tool for the job
08-Aug-2014
By
, Leeds
"Although this still needs quite a lot of effort, it is definitely the right tool for the job of digging post holes. I used four overlapping digs to get the 300mm x 300 mm hole down to 600 mm deep. It was hard work but at least I knew that I was only digging the size needed and with clean vertical sides. Very pleased that I bought."

Brilliant Piece of Kit
24-Jun-2014
By
, Glastonbury
"Read the previous reviews from others and so pleased that I did because this tool is brilliant! It reduced both the time taken to produce close fitting accurate post holes and the concrete used. Produces clean 8" dia holes to accept 4" sq posts leaving sufficient space for concrete. I worked to a depth of 0.75m easily but which is about its limit. Returning unused bags of concrete which will cover more than half the cost of the tool. It's a 'no brainer'!"

Brilliant
23-Jun-2014
By
, exeter
"As other reviewers have said this is a fantastic tool and you won't regret buying it. I was dubious having spent a small fortune on 13 concrete posts and panels but the extra 40 quid for this was well worth it for the ease of doing the job. I found you still need to shave the edges of the hole ever so slightly with a spade to get the holes square but then again i'm not sure you actually need your holes to be square as long as they're sufficient diameter. It's a rock solid bit of kit although weirdly the thing that brought it to a halt was squidgy shrub roots but those are easily chopped out of the way. Big pebbles also slow it down but as the hole is so quick to cut it's easy to scoop those out by hand. Highly Recommend."

Great for digging post holes
22-Jun-2014
By
, Hants
"I purchased this along with the roughneck posthole digger. An excellent combination which makes light work of roots and rocks when digging post holes. This would be fine in virgin ground (no major roots or rocks), but with the 17lb digger makes a no brainer.
I wish I'd bought these years ago, it would have saved me loads of time and hard work."

"Wasn't sure whether to bother getting this for just two projects but so glad I did!
I was delighted with how light the tool was and how well it did the job!
Don't hesitate buying this if you have some fence posts to put in."

DONT HESITATE - BUY ONE !!!!!
29-May-2013
By
, Surrey
"Ummed & arrrd about buying this, materials cost far more than expected and was hesitant to spend another 40 quid. WOW so pleased I did, had one of those tool heaven moments, bit like when I first bought an SDS drill. This digger is amazing, I dug a dozen 3ft deep straight sided perfectly round holes in an hour ! Works a treat & if you do hit something hard turn it 90 degrees & off you go again.Had to get a saw down 1 hole that had a tree root in it but it chomped thru smaller stuff no worries.Last time I fenced I bought a "post hole shovel", must have taken 15 mins per hole and they ended up 3 times the size, back ached and I had to stop for a cuppa & a tab every 3 holes ! Also as the holes are so prescise I only used 7 bags of postcrete so reckon by the time you've done 20 posts the tool has paid for itself in material savings alone. Have ended up with pin straight rock solid posts and am well chuffed."

Fantastic

By
, Warwicks
"When the soil is soft and crumbly it's a piece of cake to did nice tight holes. When its hard and rocky, it'll shift lots of stuff but you may still need a long chisel of crowbar but reaching down for the spoil and cleaning up is a doddle.
Fantastic value - should have bought one decades ago!"

post digger
03-Oct-2012
By
, The Fens
"This is an excellent well made tool, not to heavy to use all day, good strong flexible handles that do not break as do the wooden ones from other manufacturers, and it has a lifetime guarantee ??? from the manufacturer, but the way that it is performing I think it unlikely this will be put to use. I must reiterate an excellent piece of kit well worth investing in."

04-Jul-2012
By

"This was a really good find. I only gave an average rating for performance as it does exactly what it should do, dig out a hole, nothing more fancy and nothing less. Also average for performance as it's still new so reliability hasn't really been put to the test, but a lifetime guarantee is a good indicator of quality."

"I had 25m of new fence to put up and treated myself to one of these, a brilliant bit of kit.
It made light and quick work of digging out the post holes, especially when used with the roghneck 17lb post hole digger to loosen any stubborn stones or cut roots. Highly recommended.

Post hole digging
26-Jul-2011
By
, Halesowen
"I invested in this product to facilitate installing a new fence and it worked great. The only thing it struggled with were large stones but you can get round this by working the soil loose to a greater depth first and thus get the stone further up into the bucket rather than in the tip of the jaws."

What a bit of kit
29-Mar-2010

"These popst haole diggers are the best that i've owned, strong, light and does the job, the only little problem i have with them is that the handles are a little short and the knucklle protectors can get in the way at the bottom of the hole."
