Roughneck Spiral Post-Hole Auger 6"
Makes life easy
When doing our front fence we had to negotiate very hard ground, tree roots and a lot of holes to dig !
Using this auger made life so much easier. In a matter of minutes you have a hole at a good depth. With 2 people the job is effortless and if you were working solo you could probably manage as well.
The starting spike makes it easy to get a straight line of post holes as there is sufficient length on the spike to avoid any hard ground movement when you start to turn it.
Versus hiring one this was well worth the investment as will make putting in a deck easy as well.

Ok but not great
The current reviews are far too generous. The tool is great on wet soil with no stone but this was really struggling on stones that were no more than 2" big.
I got this one because I thought the price might reflect the reviews but I done 24 post holes and I used my pole spades more then this. Handy to have but expensive for what the results were.

Post Hole Augur
This made the construction of a perimeter fence an awful lot easier, would recommend it highly!

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.
