Rated 4 out of 5 by Worth paying extra for this It's worth paying the £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. 5 Oct 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Value Good heavy duty tool, need to see how it performs over time but it looks fit for purpose. 4 Aug 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Saves your back A good, heavy, solid piece of kit. The weight helps thump through tougher soil. The central hinge allows for digging deeper holes without the handles hitting the sides when opening to grip the spoil (unlike long-handle bottom-hinge varieties). It does, however, still struggle in damp/wet clay where there is no opportunity for the clay to compress within the heads. This requires you to thump down in all orientations before breaking off the lump with a bar or narrow spade before returning to the digger to extract the lump. So far has been good in all other soil types. Reduces digging time, allows you to stay standing up (very little back bending), creates a neat hole to minimise concrete required to set post. Digs to 2ft 6in with ease and can go deeper. Overall a useful tool and worth the money. 18 Jun 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best post hold digger Could not fault this tool. It does what it says on the tin. Digs a 2 foot hole in about 20 mins through heavy clay. You might need a long metal spike to dislodge bricks and rocks etc. Well worth the price. 20 Jan 2014
