The Holey-Moley Post Hole Core Digger: A Comprehensive Overview
The Holey-Moley Fence Post Core Digger is an innovative tool designed for efficient fence post hole digging, aided by the power of a standard shop vacuum. This tool is particularly effective in various soil conditions like hardpan, hard-packed clay, both dry and wet conditions, and most uniform soils having binding characteristics.
Holey-Moley Post Hole Core Digger Method of Operation
The primary function of the Holey-Moley Core Digger is to dig a narrow ring around a central plug. A shop vacuum creates nearly 80 pounds of pull down force on the cutter head, enabling easy ground penetration. Once the digger reaches a cut depth of 12 inches, the plug is held within the digger head with the vacuum. After removal the vacuum can then be switched to the blower function to expel the plug, or simply turning off the vacuum usually allows the soil to fall out.

The core digger operates at a rate of 2 to 15 inches a minute, depending on the soil type. It can bore precision holes up to 4.5 feet deep and is available in diameters of 4, 5, and 6 inches. Extensions for the vacuum tube, available in lengths of 14, 28, 36, and 48 inches, facilitate deeper digging.
This digger is versatile, capable of cutting through large tree roots, and can also cut through electrical conduits, metal water pipes, PVC pipes, and communication cables. Therefore, it is strongly recommended to call 811 before you start digging.

The Holey-Moley Core Digger assembly comprises three parts: the handle assembly, the upper vacuum tube, and a quick change head. The digger head is made of heavy-gauge metal pipe with a replaceable hardened metal blade.
Replaceable Blades for the Post Hole Core Digger
Additional accessories include Fence Post Hole Reamer which are available in 8-inch and 10 and 12-inch diameters. The reamers’ outside diameter is ideal for concrete tubes. After the digging process, the shop vacuum can be used to clean the bottom of the hole and surrounding area of loose dirt, keeping your workspace tidy.
Lastly, the Holey-Moley Core Digger is not only efficient and easy to use, but it also turns the laborious task of digging holes into a simple, even enjoyable process.
