Professional Quality, low cost
11 Jun 2016

" I regularly erect fences for clients, this post hole digger bar REALLY gets the thumbs up from me. Just the right weight and length for the full variety of uses I need it to perform. Excellent at retaining sharp tip, hardenening and tempering of head must be just right to achieve this.
Slices through roots, old fence post remains Thrust in at 45 degrees or less, it's great for prizing up well seated original posts etc.
Not used the ramming end as yet, but the head acts as a comfortable grip when used in deeper holes.... Well done 'Roughneck'

" Does what it says on the packet, cuts out great holes, but I found it hard to scoop out a 2 foot by 12" square hole, I should have bought the post hole digger as well, to scoop the loosened earth out, in general a good post digger, which can be used in many other heavy tasks "

" Great tool.
Really useful for digger holes. cuts through roots and helps loosen stones.
Used along side the Roughneck Fibreglass Post-Hole Digger to dig 43 fence post holes over Easter. Made a big job much easier.

Excellent to get old post out
2 Apr 2016
By

" Used this over weekend after post snapped at base, leaving 2ft in ground.
Allowed me to break concrete around remaining post left in ground, and then lever to pull out...
Good solid bar, longer than I expected, but soon found that was a good thing!

" This tool won't penetrate all concrete but it will penetrate MOST concrete. And it CAN penetrate all concrete, albeit given lots and lots of time.
So don't rush out and throw away your pneumatic drill just yet, you'll only end up with repetitive strain injury. But do consider doing a job without using petrol - and creating lots and lots of noise. "

" Was finding it tough going to dig post holes for a broken fence. Using this made it a lot easier-still hard work but seems it will cut through anything due its sharp blade and sheer weight. Took hours off the job. "
