Post Hole Digger with Ruler is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 82.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tool w/ Ruler This is a great tool, the ruler helped digging a hole for a retractable hose reel and the ruler got the hole to the correct depth to pour concrete and place the 2X4 pressure treated wood post and metal cover. I liked this post hole digger better than the smaller cheaper post hole digger from China. This post hole digger will be a great addition to my tool chest for future projects.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from decent post hole digger Decent post hole digger, appears to work as advertised. The ruler is nice, but loses its value after a few digs as it will get covered in whatever you are digging, so that is more of a novelty. I have had some post hole diggers in the past which could scrape more off a flat surface (such as scraping dirt off a post hole cement footing 48" deep), but this does the trick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, makes the job easy! This was my first post hole digger and I think I bought a good one. I've been working on a deck and this tool has made my job a lot easier. Everytime I've used it this week (dug about 9 holes), I'm surprised on how quickly and easily i can get 2ft below the ground. Takes some effort but this post hole digger has made my project quite easy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ames post hole digger Did the intended job without an issue. This product's cost was in the mid-range of those available. That it was ruled on one side was a plus. Would have liked the arms to have been of a composite material, but couldn't justify the cost upgrade for a backyard project.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good post hole digger I was able to quickly dig the new hole for my mailbox post. I thought the ruler would be useless, but it actually came in handy and accurately showed how deep the hole was. I measured with my tape measure as well to make sure. Good construction, no issues.

The ruler is handy and very useful for quick monitoring of the depth. The rubber hand grips leave a little to be desired as they slip very easily. the digger would be of better use without the rubber grips.

These post hole diggers held up to dig and through some pretty impressive Coral Rock which is all we have here in South Florida. These things take a pounding and you can't even tell that we have used these things. They still look brand new.

I went to mark the handle only to see the already marked ruler on the handle. Good sturdy tool and nice rubber type grips make it easy on the hands for those of us that don't like using gloves.
