This commercial-grade posthole digger is superior to all others because it has a hinged leverage point that allows you to open and close the digger with minimal hand movement. Its unique design allows you to dig straight-sided holes of any diameter as deep as 5 feet with only 4" to 6" handle travel. Requires much less effort to operate and needs a lot less clearance above or near the hole. Adjustable handle pivot increases blade leverage for compacted soils. Carbon steel blades have excellent edge retention and long life. Fiberglass handles. Overall length 59". Weighs 15 lbs. Imported.

Ok, so I left a review almost two years ago on these diggers and It remains the same. The "Hole Deal" are still the best ever made! I do fences for a living and I dig far to many a hole by hand. Here in Colorado we have every type of soil there is. From nice soft dirt (which I rarely find) to solid granite dirt, including super sticky heavy hard clay. I've been using the same pair for the past two years. Before these I was going through about a pair a week and It gets pretty expensive! Sure they're heavy. Sure It's an opposite type of operation from conventional diggers and if you can't figure out how to use them, well then... How do function daily? It's not rocket surgery! It only took one hole to master. I can twist, push, pull and just about anything else and not have to worry about them bending or breaking bad. When you clean a hole out you don't slam your knuckles between the handles. When your hole is getting deeper it isn't getting bigger at the same time. A little on the heavy side but so worth it.

I have heavy clay with a deep sod. I used Hole Deal along side a conventional hole digger. The Hole Deal took twice as long to dig a 24" hole, 10 min vice 5 min. I can't keep pounding it down and closing and opening and pounding and load up the jaws and take out a jaw full, like I can with a conventional digger. Hole Deal dosen't give you enough leverage to squeeze the jaws shut. You have to push the handles together and in heavy clay they just touch, and because of all the pivot points and brackets and bolts(all very tight), I cant twist the digger much because the handles are so close together and there is so much slack in the linkage it looks and feels like something will bend. I had it set at the lowest pivot and it only helped a little bit. Also it tends to taper to a smaller diameter as I go down, because I have to consiously pull the handles apart as I jab down, with a conventional digger I just hold the handles closed. Because it only takes small bites I am constantly lifting the heavy Hole Deal out with a handful if dirt. This is time consuming and tiring. One good point: it excells at cleaning the very last bit of dirt at the bottom of a hole. And it might be OK for deep over 2' holes. I see this tool as an accessory to a conventional digger, power augers, and digging deep holes. Finally, its made in China.
