Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well I had to dig through a layer of clay to plant trees, this ate the job up. Only criticism, the bolt was too tight, a turn off with a spanner and all good

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth it Didn’t realise how easy it cuts into the ground and collects the soil so easy.....of course you may have to use another tool to cut out roots or stones, but this great device save on back pain and creates a post hole in half the time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes light work of post holes This speeds up digging post holes enormously. Makes really light work of shifting earth and unlike a spade helps to only remove what you need to. Gets through tough clay soil fairly easily. Very robust. A little heavy - but because you can remove earth so quickly it's worth it. Knuckles are well protected. Definitely a back saver - with the height of the handles comfortable even for the tallest of people.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Won’t recommend I bought this post hole digger last week and found this has little use for us, leaves soil in the hole and any stones between the jaws would case issues lifting the soil. I wouldn’t recommend this product, it’s a shame I can’t return this product.

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.

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.
