Post hole diggers

 are one of those tools that you probably won't use that often but are essential to specific jobs. Post hole diggers were designed for digging post holes and are most commonly used for fencing and concrete supports for decks and other small structures. If you have ever used a post hole digger you know why they are so handy to have. If you try digging a post hole with a shovel, you're hole will be more wide than it is deep. That is where post hole diggers come in. They can cut a nice hole straight down in a variety of diameters. Already compacted soil around the hole is not disturbed making alignment easier and keeping settling to a minimum.

Post hole diggers come in all shapes and sizes. You might want to consider a power post hole digger, a gas power post hole digger or even a 3 point post hole digger or tractor post hole digger depending on the size or your job.

Used post hole diggers can usually be found at tool rental stores in most areas. Some of the higher end post hole diggers can get pricey so renting is usually the best solution. Having a small manual post hole digger around can never hurt and will surely be used throughout the years.

Don't test your luck with a shovel when you need a nice straight and deep hole. Let a post hole digger make your life so much easier. Check out the other types of post hole diggers and thanks for visiting The Post Hole Digger.
