Answer: 
I might actually have to change that answer. Ames just contacted me and, apparently, my documentation got lost in cyber space. They said they are going to replace the item as soon as I re-send the pictures. That would make their warranty quite solid in my book.

Answer: 
Apparently, the 15 year manufacturer warranty is just a pretty sticker on the tool. My handle broke after 1 year. The item was so lightly used that the sticker was still readable. You could, in fact, see the knot in the wood that created the weak point where the handle snapped; so it was clearly a defective handle. I contacted the company, they asked for more information, and I never heard a word back Read More

Post Hole Digger with Ruler is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 76.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid product If you have a deep hole to dig, this is the one you want. I was digging holes at twice the speed of my buddy using a similar tool from another maker that cost twice the price.

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 5 out of 5 by from Post Hole Digger I like the ruler carved in to the side of the handle so you can measure the depth of your hole. It's a great tool for the price. The only draw back is the gauge of steel; it's no match for any rocks you may encounter. Overall, I'm happy with it and would recommend it to anyone working on a fence project as I am.

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.
