"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."
"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."
"Made sort work of digging out old fence posts. Cut through the old postmix easily. Even used to dig away edge of concrete drive to increase flower bed. Don't know why I haven't bought this before now."
"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."
"What a great tool i was in two minds to buy this tool so glad i did it made the job so much easier,if you are going to dig holes for posts up to 2 feet deep get this tool you will not regret spending the money."
used in combination with mattock for digging trenches around at least 10 year old bamboo then using this bar to slice through/pry the roots free to around 1-2ft deep. hard work no doubt about it.definately makes the job easier though. will have a lot of use in future.post holes next"
"Wanted to dig a few holes for concrete fence post for my son. Hired a post hole borer to do the bulk of the job but wanted something for the tree roots. Good job I bought this product as the borer not up to the job as there was too much stone. The Roughneck was brilliant, couldn't have done the job without it. Even chopped bolts off old concrete posts. An essential piece of kit for any fencer or landscaper. Only downside I thought it was a bit pricey. Knock a tenner off and its a bargain."
"This tool will save you hours of work. Like a crowbar but with a thick, sharp blade at one end. Cuts through roots and breaks up hard soil and even concrete. Really good piece of kit.. does at it is meant to. Made of tough material and would highly recommend to anyone. A really good weight and length. The striking pad on its top is great for sledge-hammer assistance as the hole deepens further. Used it recently and was impressed you won't be disappointed if you buy one of these."
"Saw this whilst browsing having numerous post holes to sink. This is a weighty item, started using the chisel point to dig down breaking up any hard soil or stones which it performed excellently allowing one of my posts to be sunk right next to my drive through the hardcore. The other end has a tamping end which allowed me to pack the holes around the post letting me correct the post for vertical. Very simple but very effective tool."
