A reader's Excavation Work question: post hole digger
Chin L. from Melbourne Australia. had this post hole digger question.
The problem with doing fence holes by hand is the fact that (apart from the hard work of course), the hole has to be fairly wide to get the depth with a shovel. Which means that you use more concrete than you need too.
I have often thought to try those hand type augers, in conjunction with the bucket of water technique.
Talking about water, no shortage of it up here at present, that's for sure!
