8-inch Fence Posts
This product is a great tool for cutting through hardpan clay to put in some steel pipe for a heavy gate. Whenever we hit some small rocks, we pulled the digger and used the vacuum house to lift them out. The digger worked well even when we hit some tree roots. We just lifted the digger, and did a little fishing to pull up the cut roots and then back in to finish the hole. The blades are remarkably strong and do a great job. We reamed the 5-foot holes with the 8″ Reamer and the 8″ steel pipe posts fit in perfect. We backfilled with the fine soil from the vacuum container and vibrated the post and it was in solid. The Holey-Moley Digger is a fine tool.

Happy Wife – Finished Fence
I hate digging holes. I had 10 holes to dig for 4×4 posts. I tried all sorts of diggers and ended up using an impact drill to slowly get down. After one foot, I hit hard clay. I stopped with five partially dug holes that needed two more feet. My wife was upset and the easy fence project became a painful one. I saw that Holey-Moley Digger and ordered the 4-1/2” Fence Post Hole Digger. It arrived on time and well packaged. I kept the heavy-duty box for storing my digger. The parts went together easily. The kit even had extra bolts and nuts. I hooked it up to my shop vacuum and I finished the five holes in an easy hour. Fantastic! I completed another five holes in the same day. The shop vacuum does a great job of getting the dirt out of the hole so the rotating back and forth is easy. I shaved the corners of the 4×4 posts a little and they went into the holes for a perfect fit. I called Titus Nelson, the inventor, and owner of the company, and he spent more than an hour talking with me to make sure everything was okay. He even followed up with a few calls to see how things were going. The bottom line, thanks to the Holey-Moley Digger, my wife is happy.

Vertical Drain Pipe – No More Standing Water
Watching this Holey-Moley Post Hole digger go down into the ground is quite amazing. It defies logic. You get down a few feet and open up the Shop-Vac and there is nothing but dust and gravel. I ordered a couple extra 3-foot extensions for deeper holes. I dug my holes 8 feet deep and then installed French Drain pipe with holes into the ground and filled them with gravel to help drain the low spots in my back yard. No more standing water spots. The Holey-Moley Digger did the job.
