    I'm looking for a post hole digger & I came across the hole deal. I like how the handles go in & not out. Looks like its good quality. I just can't find no reviews on them. It's $72 shipped so I want find some reviews on it before I decide.
    Thank you for any advise.

    Have you ever had to install a fence using a manual post hole digger?

    If you did you would realize the extra bit of squeezing is not going to help that much. Even when you have sandy soil hitting enough golf ball to baseball size rocks will make progress exceedingly slow.

    As a home owner only having to do less then ten holes in their life time then go and buy a manual post hole digger. Use it on that one job then let it sit in your garage for the next thirty years. Until your estate has to dispose of it. Then go for it.

    But the saying time is money better to get a powered auger.
