Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid piece of kit Well built piece of kit, solid and easy to use. Very light for such a sturdy build once you get a technique that suits you you can make real progress in most types of ground would highly recommend

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not built to last I bought a set of these a while back and as a fencer they have saved me many hours digging with a spade but after just one summer they are now ready to be replaced due to the fiberglass handles splitting. So, in conclusion, yes I would say they are worth the money and they will pay for themselves in no time at all but be prepared to buy a new set every year if you use them regularly for work as I do.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from digging Really good at clearing dirt out of holes but not the best for digging, unless the soil is sandy or peat.

Loose handle come off on first use

I purchased this item on 6/06/20 order no a6492870375. On first use the non slip handles came loose. On further use one of the handles slipped up the shaft and came off when I was removing the soil from the hole. I find this unsatisfactory

How does this cope with dry and rocky ground?

Asked by: Declan11
I've used it extensively in thick clay soil that's full of fist sized lumps of flint. The digger is sturdy enough to smash through the flint. Need to be careful not to use too much sideways force when trying to pull out rocks as the handles will eventually crack. But downwards force it's more than enough to smash through rocky ground.

How do they cope with chalk?

Hi all. Anyone know how these would fare against chalk? Want to dig a number of holes for RSJ’s so need to go pretty deep..! Cheers

Handles

Are the black handles you grip meant to be slightly loose so they move or is the one I have faulty?
Asked by: Dave19741974
Good afternoon Dave19741974, thank you for your question. The black grips should fit tightly at the end of the handles to ensure comfort during use, if they move excessively to the point that you are unable to use the tool properly, may we suggest you replace it in store for a new one. Not sure if ''slightly loose'' handles would classify as fault, however you should be satisfied with the digger and its overall performance. Hope this helps.

What is the diameter of the hole that they can dig?

Asked by: Ralph0121
I don't know if the Roughneck respondent was looking at a different product, but the one I bought makes holes at least 14.5cm diameter. And that would only be in blancmange - ie cutting a precise hole straight down - in reality, with each push into the ground, you scrape a little bit off one side or the other of your hole, resulting in something between 15cm and 20cm diameter. Which is fine, given that a 100cm square pole requires a 15cm (okay, 14.142cm...) diameter hole at least. So allowing for some concrete all round the post, it's perfect. This is a great tool for the job.
