Rated 1 out of 5Â by Daniel28 Well built, strong but useless
I'm a fencing contractor andI brought these to replace an old pair I have, I'm still using the old pair as there so much better.
I liked the design where the handles are spaced apart and there built solid.
A bit on the weighty side but that dose help when driving them in the ground.
I feel the head needs to open up more as it makes the hole narrower as you dig. They are useless when it's wet or clay soil as they constantly block and are hard to unblock as the head dose not open enough.
I would steer clear and go for the wooden handle ones and a long handled spoon. Dig with the spoon and clear the hole with the shovholer.
Read the other reviews and are surprised by them.
Hope this helps.

If you need to dig a lot of postholes this is the perfect tool. It will last almost forever, excellent quality, works so smoothly A tool to be proud to own.
If there is any negative aspect to this too it would be the weight of it, but this is the quality showing.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Careful Worth paying extra for this
It's worth paying the Â£14 extra for this over the single lever model - it's much more robust and has a more natural action in that you pull the handles apart to open the jaws (as it's double levered) And it's a real back saver.
Only thing that concerns me is that the bolts on the pivot points are quite a loose fit in their holes, which maybe could lead to rapid wear if used continuously for long work periods. However, I squirt some oil on all the joints before starting work and it all seems to be fine so far.
