I bought the Draper auger in conjunction with a twin handle post hole digger. Reasons for buying include....Mid-price, good overall length, sliding handle enabling it to be used in tight spots, good length of blade.
Delivery was fast and the item well packaged. The auger was sturdy with a reasonable amount of strip welds holding the unit together. Cheaper models often have a shorter "corkscrew" and a couple of spot welds which lead to the corkscrew blade shearing off the stem in hard ground.
The sliding handle is locked in place by a tiny self tapping screw. Unfortunately the screw thread was damaged and I intend to fit a replacement shortly. (no big deal)
Although I have yet to put a post in the ground, I have tested the auger on my medium/soft ground by boring a few test holes. For me it was much easier than the double handed digger. I was able to dig a 3 foot hole (by 6 inch wide) in less than 5 minutes.
I encountered a few stones on the way down but nothing that hindered the progress.
It's important to dig a little and remove the auger, shake the soil off and continue.
The 6 inch hole is ideal for most applications but you could widen with a spade or twin handled digger if required. Once the handle is removed the auger could be popped into the hole and twisted clockwise to remove debris from the bottom of the hole.
A solid (apart from the handle screw), well priced auger that will be useful for fencing and plant transplanting in the garden.
Worked great in my light soil and suits my regular DIY requirements perfectly.
