Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Design Not enough clearance at the end of the handles that you can hurt your fingers. Be careful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great!!!!10 holes no issues Does what it was made for very happy with it, would very much recommend!! If you purchase one you'll be glad you did.Take the negative reviews with a grain of salt.there were pre-existing holes so I ran into cement so I decided to dig right next to the old post.I had no problems I suspect some may have run into concrete the way I did this a problem. Do yourself a favor dig right next to old post leave the old concrete in the ground. I went with (metal)post master post by halco I won't need to replace post again! This digger is great loved the measuring on the side if it wears remark with permanent marker or etch 24" paint works to! Good digging !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Post hole digger The post hole digger worked very well. The ruler aspect was a great thought in the overall design. One less tool to carry to the work site. I normally measure the posts and mark them, now the post hole digger has is on the side of the handles and I can check the depth right away. Also the handles had a nonskid coating, so the need for gloves were not needed. Overall feeling of the tool was sturdy and will do the job for years to come.

Repacked holes with sand and dug new holes with post hole digger. Some holes about 32" deep. Reduced amount of concrete required for new posts. Digger even helped removed broken concrete that was broken with Angeles bar.

Works great for digging and is sturdy, however the ruler has worn off after only 3 holes. engraving the ruler or something different then a screen type printing would be better. Has a good warranty so ill just exchange it when the ruler wears out.

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.
