Roughneck Heavy Duty 15lb Post-Hole Digger is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't fault these! Decided to spend time to write another review, as I feel I really came across product that's worth it. Looking at the product from all rating perspectives: -Giving 5-star on performance was the hardest part. IF, and that is "ONLY if" I wrote this review straight after purchase, I'd give performance 3 or 4 stars. This digger really is hard to operate, but ONLY TO START WITH. When using this digger the first day I thought this is going to be a pain... Really hard to open and close, feels really heavy. However, after say 15-ish post holes (I dug to various depths, up to 1 meter deep), suddenly all parts started fitting together!! It's like running-in car engine, the friction does the job for you, and after a while it's absolutely smooth operation! -Features at 5 stars, as I can simply dig a 1 meter deep hole, same diameter all the way to the bottom. The extra hinge is an excellent design. Also, what I initially thought was going to be a downside, the extra weight of the digger can be used to users advantage to dig deeper with less effort, allowing gravity to do some work! -Value definitely at 5 stars. I quite often modify my tools, or I look at how much would it cost me in plain materials to make a similar functioning tool, and I can't see how could I beat the price... It's probably THE most expensive manual digger, definitely most expensive I found so far, however, worth every penny. And when digging with this tool the extra hinge (straight hole) allows saving quite a lot on materials cost. I'm using just about a bag (or 25 kg) of concrete for each post with this digger. -Reliability also 5 stars. My justification behind the score is simple: it takes approx 15 post holes to get over initial hinges "running-in", and after that the digger only STARTS it's normal operation. It feels as if's going to take another 100 posts done (or more), before I'll have to even re-tighten the bolts! So far I used this manual digger on two projects, used it for several hours in total, and I simply cannot fault it. Yes, it's heavy, and you will get blisters using this digger, but it's definitely extremely sturdy construction, designed to outlast any other manual post hole digger I ever used. In short, compared to other diggers, it feels like industrial tool among DIY toys!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from In case you can't decide... Having to dig some post holes, I ordered this and the cheaper model with fibreglass handles as I was not sure if the other product (35835) would be up to the job. Neither product will actually DIG the hole, you'll need 62496 (a strong breaking bar type too) for that. As for clearing the soil out the hole, I suppose either this or 35835 would work equally well. But I found the cheaper item worked fine. So I am not dismissing this product at all (and it is indeed very well made) but just wanted to say that the cheaper one works as well, at least in my experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent bit of kit You get a pretty much spot on hole every time ( as long as the ground is near enough stone free), much better than the standard ones that end up getting a wider hole the deeper you go. We use it for 3 or 4 days a week installing fences and they last a good 12 months with plenty of use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Well built, strong but useless I'm a fencing contractor andI brought these to replace an old pair I have, I'm still using the old pair as there so much better. I liked the design where the handles are spaced apart and there built solid. A bit on the weighty side but that dose help when driving them in the ground. I feel the head needs to open up more as it makes the hole narrower as you dig. They are useless when it's wet or clay soil as they constantly block and are hard to unblock as the head dose not open enough. I would steer clear and go for the wooden handle ones and a long handled spoon. Dig with the spoon and clear the hole with the shovholer. Read the other reviews and are surprised by them. Hope this helps. .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from posthole auger If you need to dig a lot of postholes this is the perfect tool. It will last almost forever, excellent quality, works so smoothly A tool to be proud to own. If there is any negative aspect to this too it would be the weight of it, but this is the quality showing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth paying extra for this It's worth paying the £14 extra for this over the single lever model - it's much more robust and has a more natural action in that you pull the handles apart to open the jaws (as it's double levered) And it's a real back saver. Only thing that concerns me is that the bolts on the pivot points are quite a loose fit in their holes, which maybe could lead to rapid wear if used continuously for long work periods. However, I squirt some oil on all the joints before starting work and it all seems to be fine so far.
