Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by dissapointedone It broke real good.
Worked fine for the first hole and then the handle snapped on the second one. To be fair I got at least 15 minutes of use from the tool. Overall I would say you can buy this tool if you only have 1 hole to dig. If you have more holes to dig say like 10 holes you could buy 10 of them and use one for each hole. Alternatively you could just get 10 replacement handles and then swap them out each time they break. If your soil is particularly firm then I would advise two replacement handles per hole. This is great if you happen to have a fire place since you can use the snapped handles for kindling.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JS I FOUND THESE TO BE OF INFERIOR QUALITY. THE HANDLES BEND AS YOU GRAB THE DIRT TO PICKIT UP. GAVE THE FEELING IT WAS GOING TO BREAK AT ANY TIME

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Otter Glad it came from an HD near me.
Guess it was my fault I bought the least expensive post hole digger HD carried. But at 25 Dollars I should get something. The two digging half were so out of line it picked up a tiny scoop of dirt each time. Fortunately HD is close and surprise I found my receipt. The post hole digger was returned immediately.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JB Handle snapped within 3 minutes. Manages to feel cheaper than the price.
The handle snapped by the bolts within the first 3 minutes of use. I sawed off the handle and rebolted so now one handle is 6" shorter than the other. It works ok to remove dirt from a hole if I break it up the soil with a prybar first. Spend the extra couple of dollars if you plan on actually digging holes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bobbofly excellent tool for the price
Needed to dig some post holes for a shed I'm building. I was able to dig right through the compressed decomposed granite that Sun Valley, NV is infamous for. Knocked out the holes in no time. one small bit of advice: leave the pivot bolt between the blades a little loose, just the way it comes from the store. a little torsional play between the blades makes it easier to chew through the tough, compacted stuff like decomposed granite & hard-pan type soils. Also, once the hole's started, try to "throw" the digger into it, rather than jamming it down - save wear & tear on your wrists, elbows & shoulders, as well as on the tool itself. Sometimes rocking the blades around to get a good chunk of soil can help if it's clay or packed real tight.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brainsprain Great inexpensive Post hole digger
I bought these to dig a few holes in my backyard for posts. They may also be good for digging a hole for planting s shrub or such a thing. They worked great and were less expensive than all others. If one is going to dig lots of holes and in very rocky soil, they may not be so good. Here in Florida, it is all sand.
