Post Hole Digger is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 95.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

This tool neither helped me in breaking the rocks nor scooping the loose soil. I had to resort using the hexagon crowbar to break the coral rocks and my hands to scoop out the pieces.

I used these on about 20 post holes were I was deepening them from 2' to 3' and enlarging them to get my fence posts in line with one another. I was a little concerned about them because the joint is a little flimsy due to the thickness of the metal but they worked exactly as they were supposed to work. I had no issues with the handles strength or length but if I had to dig these holes from start-to-finish I probably would have rented a gas post hole digger (the right tool for the right job!).

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just Adequate Seemed flimsy but the only one of it's kind available at the store. Used it for 5 4x4x6' posts. Worked well with my soil, which is loose clay. (I pre-dug a bit with a spade). Cons: I couldn't get used to not letting my knuckles bang together when scooping. (Gloves helped.) Also, not very substantial-feeling tool. Kind of insulting actually..It won't take abuse. DiY homeowner grade.. recommended, but for a small project only.

It was weak, the poles twisted. I was trying to put up a Realtor sign and had to leave it leaning in a shallow hole. I went back to see if it was still standing and wound up putting concrete around it which is usually not necessary.

If you pay for higher models, the handles are offset which will prevent your hands from smashing into each other. Not a big deal for the few holes I dug and eventually got used to it.

The Post Hole Digger was easy to use and light weight which stood out for me. There was nothing I disliked about this tool as everything I desired to do and complete was done with ease. I had this tool about a month and it exceeded my expectations.
