Good heavy duty tool, need to see how it performs over time but it looks fit for purpose.

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.

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.

saves a lot of time effort and scratting about with shovels, trowels etc when removing spoil from holes. solidly made and looks like it will last a lifetime.(certainly mine)
