Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 24 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by If you need to dig a post hole this is it! What I like about this digger is 1-it is heavier than the cheap ones, so you get a bigger bite with each scoop. 2- the rubber grips on the handle are easier on the hands 3- the hinge is hands down much more robust than the others out there so when you spread the handles and pull up, the handles don't twist away from you. Like I've said if you are only doing a hole or two you could go cheaper but if you want something that will last...get this one, it's worth the extra $30 July 7, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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 June 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Efficient digger Bought this to install a privacy fence in my backyard. Good scooping power and nice grip on the handles July 14, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Razor back has your back Great product. Decided to spend the extra money then on the cheap wood ones at HD. This dug holes for my new gate post like slicing butter. Solid feel and will last a long time. FYI it has a lifetime warrant through the manufacturer. July 11, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for digging plant holes Bought this post digger to dig holes for plants and it works great. It's built like a tank and went through the rocky plant bed with ease. Only needed the pick for the bigger 3 inch+ rocks. July 12, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. June 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 11, 2014
