good clean holes
25 Aug 2012

"I was initially slightly disappointed in the weight/apparent build of this, given the tasks ahead. I was wrong.
Wouldn't want it any heavier in use, and it 'just works'.
Worth trimming surface roots, even small ones, clear of the site if possible (and present) but a joy to use overall.
You will quickly get back the cost in postcrete costs alone!

Brilliant Tool
18 Feb 2011
By Bazidog

"This auger is a first rate tool. Enabled me to bore a neat hole for square concrete fence post in minutes with the result that I was able to minimise the amount of "Postcrete" fixing cement to less than a bag per post.
Highly recommended."

Save time, save money!

"Excellant, having dug out post holes with spade, post hole diggers, and power augers, this is by far the better tool!.
Smaller holes mean you save money and time on backfilling. And holes are dug in double quick time. Holes can also be placed with near pin-point acuraccy when starting the auger. VERY GOOD TOOL!"

Saves a lot of hard work
3 Dec 2008
By Colcas

"great tool - saves all the hard work of trying to dig a hole for posts and needs a lot less concrete for backfill - bored out a 3 foot hole in a matter of minutes - and no back ache which is always a bonus"

Hole in a flash
13 Aug 2013
By Tweettowoo

"Had the post hole Auger a couple of weeks now, not used it a whole lot but the few times it has proved its worth (maybe not 75 quid though).
It took out clean holes in clay soils with a few small stones thrown in, it handled the small stones without a problem except it tended to try and go around them throwing the hole off target.
Larger stones were dislodged using an iron bar but the auger still came into its own by cleaning out the bottom of the hole without the need to scrabble around on hands and knees.
Overall a good piece of kit saving money on postcrete but in my view somewhat overpriced for a couple pieces of metal welded together.

Does the job

"Works very well at producing a small neat hole. Point could do with being a corkscrew type as the flat point can be knocked of course by stoney ground but if the soil is clear it works very well. shame it is not cheaper as 5in ones seem to come in around the £30 mark."

Complete waste of money
8 Sep 2013
By datblygwreiddo

"Don't understand how there can be so many good reviews for this - maybe this tool used to be built to a better quality?
Actual product is now not as shown in the picture. Handle attachment is two butterfly bolts that are way too thin for the holes so the handle regularly comes loose.
The guide point is nowhere near what is shown in the picture - it's now a lot less pointy (the tube is just squashed flat and the corners cut off) and it's way off centre so you simply cannot get the tool to put a hole exactly where you need it.
Finally, the handle is nowhere near long enough so you can't dig a hole any deeper than a couple of feet, and you'll do your back in doing it.
Just twisting a trenching spade round and round in the hole worked better than this thing.
Not worth £7.50, let alone £75.
