Roughneck 17lb Post-Hole Digger
The right tool for the job
Good weight for getting through those stubborn roots and concrete, ideal in every way for the job intended. Would recommend to anyone digging post holes, even for a one off hole, time saving tool.

Effective Post Hole Digger
Excellent tool for the job. Allows you to dig accurate post holes reducing the amount of concrete needed. It is a weighty piece of kit which will cut through smallish tree roots very effectively. Thought that it was a little overpriced for what is essentially a steel rod.

Simple but effective
I was dreading digging 2ft holes for my garden fence posts but to be fair having started using this tool the job seems pretty manageable.
It took me around an hour to dig the first hole (it was mostly shale rock after the first foot down). With more experience I reckon I'll get a similar hole down to around 45 minutes with a bit of a sweat on.
Although I did feel the aches and pains the following day that is more down to my sheer lack of fitness. Part digging tool, part fitness equipment. I should be much stronger by the time I've finished the job.
Rest day today, I'm planning an hours "workout" tomorrow and strangely looking forward to it.

Real Roughneck Quality
A very well made tool ideal for digging post holes or chopping tree roots.
A really good weight and length with a useful 'tamper' on the top end.
