Works fine as long as the ground is soft but if you need to plant in moderate or hard soil it's not going to work without breaking. The handle is plastic and it doesn't take a whole lot of pressure for it to break. Mine broke after planting about 30 bulbs, I tried gluing it back together but it wouldn't hold. I don't recommended it if your ground is hard. They should make the handle and the handle grips out of metal and attach it to the metal shaft with metal screw or nuts.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Note the plastic handle and not twisting allowed My soil is hard and twisting while stepping down worked great. However, the top piece is plastic. As others mentioned, any twisting causes the plastic to break. It did not take much twisting and it was gone. This tool is not good for hard soils with small rocks. This thing would probably work great for soft soils. There are not many good alternatives for hard soils and this tool is close. As luck would have it, the pole raising up is a perfect fit for inserting a 3/4 inch copper water pipe. After the plastic broke, I retrofitted a copper handle. A "T" connect of 3/4 in copper pipe with 6 inches each direction. Drilled holes in the copper piper where the rivets for the plastic were previously located and attached with a couple of bolts. This contraption worked great thru about 400 bulbs in hard soil.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful product I bought it at my local Home Depot, because it was the only one that they carried in-store. I needed a bulb planter, and thought this would work fine. As others have mentioned, the tube is sturdy and strong, however, the handle broke on my 5th bulb (out of the over 100 I wanted to plant). The instructions say to twist as you push down, and if you do that, the handle rivets will break and now it is useless to me. I will try to return it tomorrow, but I no longer have the receipt, so who knows. If the handle weren't plastic and held on my cheap rivets, it would work great.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from badly made I bought this and brought it home to plant 200 bulbs, the handle broke halfway through the first hole. I took it back for replacement and the second one lased for 12 holes being as careful as I could. The body of the planter seems quite solid with a hefty feel to it but the handle is cheap plastic that is held together with two aluminum pop rivets. When the handle came off the second planter I replaced the rivets with steel screws as I really need to plant those bulbs. I would have been willing to pay more for better quality but this was the top the store carried.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from mine broke too.. Handle broke during first use as seems to be the case for many others. Local stores don't have replacement in stock...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from worthless The handle seems to be made of fairy wings. it broke on the second bulb I was planting. the rest of it seems to be fairly well made but, without a handle it's worthless. I've lost the receipt so I doubt if they'll take it back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wish I had looked at the reviews online first As others have said, the handle is poor quality plastic fastened to the shaft with poor quality rivets. The rivets didn't last through one twist (and the instructions specifically say to twist as you drive it down) and sheared off immediately. I had several more holes to do, so I dug around in my garage for some short bolts I could use to replace the rivets. This worked for a while and I made it through about a dozen holes, but by the end the bolts I put in had started to spread out the rivet holes, and the plastic split vertically down from the holes. I have now used strong epoxy and a couple hose clamps, along with my original bolts, to try to hold the thing together the next time I use it. We'll see how it goes. If it holds up through the Fall bulb planting, it may be worth almost the $23 price. As sold, this product is complete garbage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fine tool if you know the limitations of the handle. The Hound Dog bulb planter works great in prepared ground. All the bad reviews state that the handle snaps off when they twisted it. Obviously it's not designed to drill a hole, just step on it to mash it into the ground and pull it up, with a wiggling motion to get the ground to release from it. I work a local produce farm and have punched countless holes in prepared field rows. Only thing I would want different would be a square one, since I set out a lot of plants in 3" square pots.
