Holey-Moley Post Hole Digger
The Holey-Moley Fence Post Hole Digger is another Holey-Moley Shop-Vac assisted digging tool. As a result of engineering design, unlike a post hole auger, this Digger operates with most standard shop vacuums. In addition, the Digger easily bores precision holes to 4.5 feet deep. Depths of 20 feet are attainable with Vacuum Extension Tubes. Digger heads for 3-1/2″, 4″, 5″ and 6″ diameters are available.
The shop vacuum assisted fence post digger will rapidly dig deep, straight, uniform holes. It will dig at a rate of 2 to 15 inches a minute depending on your soil type and hole diameter. In addition, unlike a post hole auger, this digger has the capability to easily dig holes 20 feet deep.
Caution: This digger will cut through electrical conduit, metal water pipes, PVC pipes, and communication cables. Call 811 in your state first before digging.
The Fence Post Hole Digger is easy to take apart and best of all it fits into a small space.
Holey-Moley Post Hole Digger Method of Operation
The Holey-Moley Post Hole Digger is a vacuum assisted, manually operated hole-boring tool. It operates in loose to hard packed soils. This tool works well in soils with gravel or small rocks and in hardpan. in addition to hard packed clay soils, loose soils and soils with up to 50% moisture are easy to penetrate. This digger is not recommended for wet soils or wet clay. As a result of excellent engineering the Digger is easy to operate. Therefore , it only requires an easy back-and-forth rotational movement to loosen the soil. The unique design results in your shop vacuum doing the hard work. Also, unlike a post hole auger that leaves a lot of soil around the hole, the shop vac removes the soil from the hole while digging. The vacuum also works well for cleaning up the bottom of the hole when digging is complete.
