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

Asked by: Mj
You can replace the handles. You will have to mark and drill your holes for the bolts. Home Depot should have some.

I have a Vigoro post hole digger with ruler, I broke handle where can I get replacement

Asked by: Boss
I'm sure that you can find a suitable replacement at any big box hardware store. They should be right next to the shovels etc.

It's not the least expensive option offered at HD and should be better quality for $38. It is light duty and feels that way. The blades are light weight which makes the hinge flimsy. The handles can rock from side to side instead of just in and out. People like to down the $50 Razorback model because it's made in china (guess what... so is the Ames) but the truth is that it is well made and twice as strong as the Ames. Buyer beware.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid tool, dug well, and the measurements on the handle... Solid tool, dug well, and the measurements on the handle saved time in gauging hole depth when i was digging the hole for my flag pole footing. My only concern is that the hinge is a little bit loose, and allows the handles to slide past each other at full open. This was a little painful on a finger or two. Worked well, and the flagpole is up!
