Post hole double shovels are used to dig tight and deep fence post holes. They are usually used in conjunction with a Fencers Graft. Tight, smaller holes mean you need less post-mix, and generally, the less the ground around the post is disturbed, the better, more secure your post will be.
Exercise caution when digging post holes; check for power cables and service pipes before starting to dig. Repairing fractured service pipes is expensive, but cutting into power cables is very dangerous and potentially life-threatening. In addition, power cables, gas, water and sewage pipes have been found in places that you would not expect, even embedded in the concrete around an existing post. Therefore, we advise using wooden or fibreglass handled double shovels and wearing rubber-soled shoes and rubber gloves when digging fence post holes.
