Post Hole Digger is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 156.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from It broke real good. Worked fine for the first hole and then the handle snapped on the second one. To be fair I got at least 15 minutes of use from the tool. Overall I would say you can buy this tool if you only have 1 hole to dig. If you have more holes to dig say like 10 holes you could buy 10 of them and use one for each hole. Alternatively you could just get 10 replacement handles and then swap them out each time they break. If your soil is particularly firm then I would advise two replacement handles per hole. This is great if you happen to have a fire place since you can use the snapped handles for kindling.

But the wooden handles bend and buckle under strain. I wish the handles were made of metal pipe of some sort to make them less pliable. Ultimately I ended up returning the tool, and borrowing my neighbors metsl handle post digger. Probably fine for gardnening and planting small trees and such, but not for clamping down on clsy 2 feet into the ground. If youre digging a hole to China, pay 2x and get metal handles.

This product did not seem to hold up well to the soil in the area, which is exceptionally rocky. There seemed to be a need for more stability when trying to dig. I felt like the tool was going to break. I ended up using another tool to break up the ground and then used this digger to simply clean out the hole.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from HDX post hole digger I gave it a 4 overall because it is a little flimsy but gets the work done for someone that will not be using it everyday. Great for home owners but maybe not for professional everyday use. Still recommend it for home owners to get this over the pro version to save few bucks especially when working on a budget.

It is a budget Post Hole Digger and is not made with the same quality of materials that a higher end model has. One of the handles broke and I spent another 8 bucks to replace it. Other than that issue, this tool made digging 12 post holes a breeze.

Upside is that it was inexpensive enough that it can lay in my garage dormant for the next decade until I need it again. Though if someone steps on it, it will be junk.

You will get a great amount of exercise, for using this tool is labor intensive but...It is much easier and safer to use than the gas powered hole digger/one man auger.
