Questions & Answers

My handle on the post hole digger broke. What do I need to do to get it fixed?

Asked by: Mj
Product description states 15 year warranty. I would take it back for replacement. If that is not going to happen, you need to find an old shovel handle about the same length and replace with that.

Yes! I was happy to see that mine - which I picked up a couple weeks ago - is American made.

What does the 15-year manufacturer warranty cover on this tool? (Handles? Grips? Hardware?) What is needed to claim it?

Asked by: FenceBuilder
The warranty covers all parts of the tool against manufacturer defect under normal, intended use. If purchased from a Home Depot, the tool can be returned to the store as well.

Post Hole Digger with Ruler is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 201.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Post Hole Digger met my expectations of durability, well made... Post Hole Digger met my expectations of durability, well made and with added touch of a ruler imprinted on the handles and padded handles where you grip the handles. The only downside was that after digging a difficult hole the digger felt like it weighed much more. Changing the quality metal heads of the digger to a lighter material would take away from the performance and durability and possibly the cost. My old digger had thinner digging heads that became bent and dented when in rocky soil.

I was pleasantly surprised by this post-hole digger for the price, particularly that it is American made. I was expecting at this price that I would be getting an imported post-hole digger. It works fine, I needed to dig a series of holes in my yard for a few light projects and this went through it fine. I had previously rented post-hole diggers but my projects were getting bigger and more frequent which justified finally buying one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This digger is lightweight with a slender profile that reaches... This digger is lightweight with a slender profile that reaches well down into a 9" hole. The blades are strong enough to cut roots up to 3/4" or 2 cm diameter. I dug 3' deep holes in dry and moist sandy silt. The digger was efficient, the blades even held smaller amounts of the very sifty dry sand, and held full loads of the moist sand. The only issue I had was that I like to be able to twist the digger to cut grasses at the surface and smaller roots underneath the soil. When you twist this digger, the handles cross a long way, and the pivot framework bends a small amount and gets slightly out of left to right alignment, so that you have to adjust by twisting the opposite way to get the handles to realign straight up over the blades again. It is a rather minor inconvenience, though. Otherwise this has been a very useful tool that is mostly well-designed to work well in my situation. I would recommend it and buy another one if I needed another digger.

This one is well made, the shovel eldges cut well, ruler markings on the handle very helpful in knowing when to stop digging. Not the cheapest nor the priciest--best value for occasional use.

If I were to use post hole diggers on a regular bases I would have gotten the more expensive pair with the jaws that and hinge that are heavy duty. Good for money for the few times I might need diggers.

I have really put this tool to the test recently and it is performing well. The only concern is that the metal where the handles attach has twisted just a bit and the handles don't line up quite as straight as they did. Overall very good though.

I only used it for 4 posts, so I can't really comment on how long it lasts, but it worked well in standard dirt and clay. I did have to use a digging bar when I got down to the harder material, so you may want to pick one of those up as well.

The measurement ruler is very helpful and saves a lot of time not having to stop to use another measuring device. I highly recommend this post hole digger. Great price too.
