Rated 2.3 out of 5 by 34 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DO NOT BUY UNLESS YOU LIKE WORTHLESS TOOLS Worse than useless because it will break the first time you torque the handle with any force. I had mine sitting in the garage a long time before using it today. The topsoil in the first hole was very soft, like coffee grounds, so no problem. The first time the teeth on this thing hit clay and got turned, the handle snapped completely out of its rivets. Read every bad review of this thing and they are all saying the same thing. This tool isn't worth ten cents. May 10, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. January 2, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sturdy but room for Improvement I am using this to take soil samples from the lawns I take care of. The blade and shaft are very sturdy. The unit as a whole is ten times better than the one I bought from ACE Hardware. Ordered online after talking to guys at local Home Depot. The entire order and pickup process (picked up in store to save shipping) went smoothly. The only reason I give it a 4 instead of 5 is the handle. Too much plastic. Will probably break within next year or two. Please remember though that I am taking 50 samples per year in hard Carolina clay. Would be more than enough and last forever in garden or flower bed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A back and knee saving tool Well made,sturdy,would have had one years ago if our Home Depot carried it in the store. June 6, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Broke after the first 10 bulbs.... The planter worked great at first. After planting a half dozen bulbs I noticed some play in the handle and release mechanism. By the time I got to the tenth bulb the handle separated completely form the main shaft. Turns out the plastic handle is attached to the steel shaft by aluminum rivets which obviously are less than adequate for the job. November 13, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. November 9, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. October 13, 2013
