Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job Makes for digging holes for fence posts much easier. Its a heavy tool, especially when it bringing out wet clay soil, but you get an ideal size hole for fence post set with postcrete, allowing for fast setting of the post.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes digging holes easy Using this tool was a revelation! Where I had previously loosened the ground with a pick axe and then dug out soil with a spade followed by a trowel when it got deeper, I was able to dig a 2ft deep hole for a 6" diameter post in ten minutes yesterday. I have two specific bits of advice though: 1) this is a heavy tool and it feels like a proper work out using it - it's not suitable if you are small in stature and not quite strong - that's probably the case anyway if you're planning to do your own hole-digging but worth being aware of! 2) whilst this works really well in soft soil on its own, it is not great at breaking through roots or stones; having read other reviews, I bought this with the 17lb 'post-hole digger' (62496) and the combination is awesome - the 17lb digger breaks through stone / rubble etc with ease and cuts through roots like nothing I've used before. This tool then picks out the debris. In summary, buy this on its own if you're digging in clean good soil but use it with the breaking tool for maximum effect if you've got roots and stones etc on your plot...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tried to kill it and failed. Did the job perfectly. I really gave it some abuse over the 2 days. While digging I hit stones, concrete and brick and it survived the whole lot. Would definitely recommend to anyone needing to dig fence posts. A small tip is to keep an SDS drill handy with a chisel bit for those stubborn concrete/stone areas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much quicker If you've got a deepish post hole to dig these are perfect for clearing the loose soil out the bottom. Saves lying on your belly trying to reach down with a trowel. I used a trench spade to break up the soil at the bottom. The combination worked perfectly and quickly.
