What does the 15-year manufacturer warranty cover on this tool? (Handles? Grips? Hardware?) What is needed to claim it?

Asked by: FenceBuilder
The warranty covers all parts of the tool against manufacturer defect under normal, intended use. If purchased from a Home Depot, the tool can be returned to the store as well.

Customer Reviews

Post Hole Digger with Ruler is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 179.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke while starting second hole! I dug the first hole in sandy soil to about 40" deep, and took one bite out of the ground for the second hole and the wood snapped at the bolt location, very frustrating considering we live 20 miles from the store and we were excited to be getting our trellis project under way! Spend the extra money on the post hole digger with the fiberglass handles, you will not be sorry.

Just barely good enough build quality after 120 " of fence I would be surprised to get three more holes dug before it's completely broken. I only bought it because it was the only one in stock. The ruler is a joke obviously and the pivot points had slop right away.

I was pleasantly surprised by this post-hole digger for the price, particularly that it is American made. I was expecting at this price that I would be getting an imported post-hole digger. It works fine, I needed to dig a series of holes in my yard for a few light projects and this went through it fine. I had previously rented post-hole diggers but my projects were getting bigger and more frequent which justified finally buying one.

The blades are thin enough to cut without needing an excess amount of force and are still tough enough not to be damaged when encountering the occasional rock. The blades are also set at the right angle so that when the handles are held together, the cut made is straight without any deviation.

This one is well made, the shovel eldges cut well, ruler markings on the handle very helpful in knowing when to stop digging. Not the cheapest nor the priciest--best value for occasional use.

If I were to use post hole diggers on a regular bases I would have gotten the more expensive pair with the jaws that and hinge that are heavy duty. Good for money for the few times I might need diggers.

There were two other options at my local store, but the was the middle option and has work well for what I needed. Built a horizontal privacy fence.

I only used it for 4 posts, so I can't really comment on how long it lasts, but it worked well in standard dirt and clay. I did have to use a digging bar when I got down to the harder material, so you may want to pick one of those up as well.
