Delighted

By doitrightfirsttime

"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 LuckyBob
, 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
25 Apr 2013
By Digga
, 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
3 Oct 2012
By warhorse
, 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."

Does the job
4 Jul 2012
By Phil65
, Devon
"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."

Makes post holes quickly
2 Jun 2012
By theoldengineer
, Rugby
"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 Tawwyn
, 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
By Andyscapes
, Worcestershire
"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."

Saves time & your back!
20 Aug 2011
By BearImp
, Ware, Hertfordshire
"Got fed up with lying face down trying to scoop out earth/mud/stones etc from the bottom of post holes. I don't know why I didn't get this earlier. Got holes dug so much faster. Still needed to use chisel tipped hole digger to break up earth/clay (riddled with flint) first but this tool was brilliant at getting stuff out of the hole. Takes a little getting use to but after that it's simple."

post hole digger

By mike739

"I bought this to save time digging post holes, fence posts were sunk 24". A normal spade kept letting the side spoil fall back into the hole. I soon had the holes cleared and the posts in.
You still need a spade or mig mutt to break the hard stuff. If the soil is soft you could use the post hole diger.
Sturdy tool and no bruised knuckles either!!
Glad I bought it.

Good but could be inproved
3 Jul 2011
By Thegardener123
, stockton on tees
"very usefull tool, but it leaves a 2 inch gap where loose soil will fall out between the blades, I took a anglegrinder to mine and now their is only a 1 inch gap.
apart from that it is a back saver,(no more bending down to remove loose soil with my hands.
"
