" Bought to help remove some serious tree stumps - would have struggled without it! It's very hefty and will chop through small roots with ease. It's expensive but it really is worth it! "

" 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. "

Great tool
12 Jul 2015
By
, Lincoln
" 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.

Post hole digger
27 Jun 2015
By
, Watford
" 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.

Simple but effective
4 Jun 2015
By
, durham
" 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. "

" Been looking to get one of these for some time, don't know why I left it so long.
great tool good size and strong, just look out for sharp bits in the paint finish as I ripped a pair of gloves, easy sorted with a file then the perfect tool, you will regret many things but not this just get one and save time on any heavy digging job.

Simple but effective
13 Mar 2015
By
, Aberystwyth
" I was dreading digging 2ft holes for my garden fence posts but to be fair having started using this tool the job seems pretty manageable.
It took me around an hour to dig the first hole (it was mostly shale rock after the first foot down). With more experience I reckon I'll get a similar hole down to around 45 minutes with a bit of a sweat on.
Although I did feel the aches and pains the following day that is more down to my sheer lack of fitness. Part digging tool, part fitness equipment. I should be much stronger by the time I've finished the job.
Rest day today, I'm planning an hours "workout" tomorrow and strangely looking forward to it. "

A Fence'rs essential Tool
13 Feb 2015
By
, Kent
" This is the 2nd I've bought. The first was light-fingered away despite its weight! It will cut through any soil or tree-root & its length means no stooping until the hole is more than 2 ft deep. The striking pad on its top is great for sledge-hammer assistance as the hole deepens further. "
