Roughneck Spiral Post-Hole Auger 6" 4.3 5 11 11
does what its designed for Ok, so bought this largely on the previous reviews. It works really well, as others have mentioned it struggles with large stones, which we had to remove by hand. But it does dig a nice circular hole and did speed up putting the fence posts in, so I am pleased with the purchase. I think the only thing that lets it down is the price, just strikes me as a tad expensive for what it is. 30 Mar 2015
It Does what its supposed to The key line in the description is can be used for many soil types, at this it is very good, but give it harder stoney ground use the big spike to break up. But whole lot easier than spade and makes a small diameter hole 13 Feb 2015
Worked well Used to dig six holes, 600mm deep, in rough ground full of roots and rubble - worked well and saved a great deal of time. Also, as mentioned by other reveiwers, will save cash on postcrete! 23 Jun 2014
Complete waste of money Don't understand how there can be so many good reviews for this - maybe this tool used to be built to a better quality? Actual product is now not as shown in the picture. Handle attachment is two butterfly bolts that are way too thin for the holes so the handle regularly comes loose. The guide point is nowhere near what is shown in the picture - it's now a lot less pointy (the tube is just squashed flat and the corners cut off) and it's way off centre so you simply cannot get the tool to put a hole exactly where you need it. Finally, the handle is nowhere near long enough so you can't dig a hole any deeper than a couple of feet, and you'll do your back in doing it. Just twisting a trenching spade round and round in the hole worked better than this thing. Not worth £7.50, let alone £75. 8 Sep 2013
