Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ralphh909 Job Not Easy But Easier
I live in foothill area of San Bernardino mountains. So, soil is very, very rocky. After 30 years I have dug my share of holes for fence, trees and plants. Never an easy task. So, knowing I had two post holes to dig I went and bought this great little digger. Yes it costs more than the others but it's worth it. (now that I'm older I don't have the strength but I have the money) Fiberglass handles and heavy duty blades made the job a whole lot easier. I didn't say easy because it was still hard with all the rocks in the ground but the blades dug in the ground with a good bite. I'm glad I bought this digger and recommend it highly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SJMFOX Industrial Strength
This post hole digger is tagged as industrial strength, and it lives up to that claim. We live in a very rocky area, and this digger cuts through most of it to get out holes dug. It is heavier than the standard post hole diggers, but it's worth the extra weight. Solid tool that looks to last a long time

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TAYTAY durable/feels good in the hands
Pretty self explantory, although this company could set themselves apart by bringing the price down a few bucks, as almost all post hole diggers look and feel the same, only difference for me purchasing this one was that it was convienant at the time. But dont let that take away from this being a a good post hole digger. It didnt fail me and its assisted me dig over 200 holes now, I would say its been put through a test of a small time fence guy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lonebear great buy
The post hole digger is solid and capable. From its weight to its solid build these drive deep in the dirt. I got these to dig the post holes out for a fence. When I used them they certainly did more then expected the tips are very solid and no pinching or bending when you hit hard dirt. I would suggest these all day long.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Joey1972 Very light, and easy to work in most terrain's
I worked digging many holes in my life with grandpa's old post hole digger. I knew when I bought this it would be a great buy. It not only saved me time, but the money that I spent saved my back!
Was it worth it? I am so very glad I spent the money to make this buy. I was still able to enjoy my day after all the digging I did. No matter what terrain I was digging in. It made it that much easier. I had a guy working next to me using his father's old post hole digger. He completely gave up using it, and just waited for me to finish digging my holes. I still had so much energy I helped this young man dig his holes. Trust me at 41 years old. I don't try to put my body under too much stress anymore.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Duluman Can take a beating
Decided to pay the extra money for this one over the wooden handle models available and am glad I did. It is a few inches longer overall so it's easier to get deeper, it is heavier so it is easier to drive into the ground, and the metal is thicker so it can take a beating. I was driving it through roots, limestone and rock and it is not bent or deformed. Anyone who has dug in Texas, especially hill country, knows how big of a pain it can be. This tool make the process much easier.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mikewisc Durable and so far so good
I used this post hole digger on only about 10 holes so far, but I can say that it worked well and appears to be durable. It is a bit heavier than some others out there, but that can work to your advantage. Anyone who uses one of these can reduce sore muscles by using the "spear chucking" method. Raise the digger above the area where you want the hole and thrust it like a spear towards the ground. Release the handles just before the digger makes impact with the ground. This way, all the force goes to the ground, and none comes back up through your hands and arms. Being a bit heavier, the digger will take a nice deep bite into the ground when you spear-chuck it this way. It takes a bit of practice, but pretty soon you'll be thrusting this thing at the ground, and letting go at the right moment to prevent the shock waves from rippling through your upper body. One final note I must say, this IS made in China. Not that it's necessarily bad (some really good stuff is made there), but I initially thought this was a made in USA product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Carlbrecht A little problem at first
The best I have used, very sturdy. However I almost took it back. When you use it the finish is so smooth that when you grab your load of dirt, clamp it together to lift it out of the hole, the dirt slides out often. After an hour of use, the blades are not as zmooth, and they hold the dirt. A little sandpaper on the blade, before you begin would be the answer.
