The Digger

U.S. Patent No. 10,385,537 for the Vacuum-Assisted Hole Digger was issued on August 20, 2019 is the technological basis for the Holey-Moley Vacuum Assisted Post Hole Digger.  As a result, this unique patent covers the design of a hole-digger that fits in-between cheap post hole diggers and expensive industrial drilling equipment.  Consequently, a single person using the Holey-Moley Vacuum Assisted Hole Digger, can now dig straight, uniform holes up to 12-inches in diameter to depths exceeding 20-feet. As a result the average person can dig holes to depths that far exceed that of the typical post hole digger.  Finally, for those that want to dig in a remote location, the company offers a Portable Engine Driven Shop Vacuum System.

The Holey-Moley Vacuum Assisted Post Hole Digger has many different configurations.  Even more unique is the digger with a PVC pipe as the backbone of  the digger.  This digger, comes as a DIY kit and weighs more than the more robust metal diggers.  However, this less expensive digger is also capable of digging holes 6″ to 9″ in diameter to depths of 20 feet or more.

The Holey-Moley Digger is available preassembled or in a Do-It-Yourself kits

The Digger Has Many Uses

The Digger has a number of uses including:

  • Shallow Wells 
  • Cache Tube Burial 
  • Construction Pilings
  • Engineering Soil Sampling
  • Landscaping & Post Holes
  • Mining Core Sampling

How the Holey-Moley Digger Works

Due to its design, the Holey-Moley Vacuum Assisted Post Hole Digger has several unique properties. To begin with, uses a standard shop vacuum cleaner to obtain super cyclonic wind speeds in the digger head.  Secondly, the super cyclonic airflow velocities are are under slight vacuum which increases the wind velocities in the digger head.  Finally these high wind velocities make the digger suitable for excavating precision holes in hard packed clay, compacted soils with small rocks, sandy soils, and looms.

What You Need To Purchase

Due to its unique design, the Holey-Moley Vacuum Assisted Hole Diggers, by Cat 6 Tools LLC, include everything except a standard Shop Vacuum. Therefore, these vacuums are readily available at your local hardware store.  These are described in the Equipment Requirements page.

Due to the diggers unique design, a standard shop vacuum with a 2-1/2 inch hose is more than satisfactory for digging holes.  Likewise, the Holey-Moley Vacuum Assisted Post Hole Hole Digger can dig precision, smooth bored holes exceeding 20-feet deep.


The Digger produces straight, uniform holes 7” to 9” in diameter
The Digger easily digs deep, straight, uniform holes.


Additionally with the use of hole reamers, diameters up to 12 inches are possible.
