Customer Reviews

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 41 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Decent Heavy, which is good, but hinge is too high making leverage on dirt in jaws difficult. I'm sure this is to allow deeper holes, but I didn't like. Open, handles are just shy of a foot apart. Closed just about 2 feet. I prefer a wider handle spread for twisting torque for breaking small roots. Returning to try another brand, might wind up with the wooden handle model I'm used to. June 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It did the job I had to dig 8 holes for split rail fence I put in. My soil has a lot of clay, and this was able to break through it. I really liked the fact that the handles are far apart vs a tradition post hole digger. I can't imagine banging my hands together constantly. I was able to dig 3ft into the ground with no issues. Digging post holes by hand is hard work, but the features of this product made it a bit easier. June 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wow! What a great tool I've been digging post holes for over 40 years. I just learned I've been doing it wrong for 40 years. Absolutely best tool I have ever used to hand dig holes up to 4' deep. May 24, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Work good but heavy duty Used them to dig 4 post holes and as I was digging one of the post arms started to bend. I'm not a big guy but just my force bent the pole. I bent it back but all the paint chipped off. Just worried how long they will last considering the cost. Worked good digging the holes tho. April 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sturdy HUGE time saver! Very sturdy and well built. I believe these will last forever! April 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by After all these years, the best ever.... Other post hole diggers become useless at about 18". Fiskars design allowed me to dig a hole 3 feet deep with ease. March 8, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 6.5 in. Post Hole Digger The post hold digger is easy to use and it makes it possible to dig deeper holes than the other manual post hole diggers can dig. February 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Goes deep, like they said building fences with 12' steel posts that need to go down min 3 feet (36") and the two other diggers we have won't let you go past 30" at best, and that is with widening the top of the hole. This claimed to get down and dirty in the hole but was priced high for a digger. The hinge is very stiff and has not yet loosened much. But after digging 42 (so far) of these 3 footer holes in N. Texas black clay soil, I must say that I'm glad I bit the bullet and got one. Lets me get down 36" or even a little further without ever widening the hole more than 8". So hopefully the savings on concrete help offset the high price! Does the job and seems to be built to last with all steel handles and thinner blades that help cut down through the clay.
