Questions & Answers


Where can i purchase it

Asked by Laura January 25, 2019

Hi Laura. Thank you for your question. Depending on your location, most Home Depot Garden Departments should carry this type of bar. If you are looking for a very specific one, it may need to be specially ordered and shipped to your closest Home Depot for free delivery and pickup. Sku # 1000-014-757 Please let us know if we can be of further assistance. Rick_HD_OC

Better than an Auger
I'm installing a deck in rocky soil. Originally I was going to rent an auger and hire someone to help me dig the six post holes. An architect friend recommended that I use a digging bar. This tool, combined with a clam shell digger, was better for excavation than any auger I ever used.

Best Root Removal Tool
I had oak tree roots right in the way of a needed post hole. Tree was gone. Roots were not. Long story short is that this particular tool worked wonders on the roots. Lots of work, but it cut through the roots easily. The hammer ball on the end is great for use with a sledge hammer. The quality of the steel and shaft were up to the task of the heavy roots,

Don't Buy If You're Going to Pry
After 4 hours of use, I bent this trying to pry up rotted fence posts out of the ground. At least it didn't snap. The label says that this can be used to pry, and any good digging bar should be able to be used to pry. At least it didn't snap on my. I returned this to the store and will search for a good USA-made bar elsewhere. I should have known not to waste my money and time with foreign-made junk.

It works!
I bought this tool recently to help me remove the roots of two old holly bushes. First, HOLY COW this thing is HEAVY! I am a slight guy (6'1", 165 lbs) and wasn't sure how I was going to be able to use this thing. The extra weight in the bar certainly was useful though -- this thing smashed through the roots and broke the tight soil up in a matter of seconds. Wear gloves and be prepared for a workout. My only complaint is that when I pried at the trunk of the bush with the bar, it had a bit more bend to it than I wanted. I didn't feel like it was going to snap, but it felt like I was loosing leverage.

I've nerver had a solid metal tool snap before.
I would not recommend using this tool for heavy duty work. I was digging a post hole and tried to pry a large rock from the side of the hole, after several minutes of working at the rock, the tool snapped at the flat end. Examining the beak, it appears that the metal used is some alloy, which was not up to the task. I sure miss American steel products.

This thing saved my neck!
Recently had to dig a lot of holes for new landscaping in really lousy soil with lots of roots, rocks, and hard clay. After digging a few holes just with a shovel, getting this from Home Depot saved my neck on the rest of the holes for the project. That being said, you're still in for a major upper-body workout. Advil is your friend.
