Viewers critical of this item have little experience digging through San Joaquin Valley hardpan or the Sierra decomposed-granite soil during the dry summers. Yes, you can buy a tractor and a shaft-driven attachment for $10,000 if your job is digging holes, but it still won't be easy without LOTS of horsepower and torque. Or, you can grab a 17-lb digging bar for $30 and beat your body to death to get to 2 feet.

The BullDigger actually works. I dug a 3 foot hole in mixed hardpan soil in 30 minutes and I didn't work very hard. Amazing. Just make sure your van is filtered and you are ready to go. Jiggle-jiggle and be PATIENT .. . you aren't digging through compost. I don't have the money to even rent a commercial machine, much less buy a professional tractor rig. FOrget about hand held 2-man augers in this hard pan--it will make a fool of you and you will hurt for 3 days.

I will admit I felt a bit silly hooking this up but 30 minutes later I was finished, in the hardest soil I have ever encountered. Be patients. Jiggle the teeth, rachet in a circle movement. Keep it dry--vacuums don't like mud.

UPS smashed the box and some of the hardware didn't arrive. I sent an email and the hardware was here in no time. Great vendor. SImple instructions.

It's sad because most of us think if you don't spend a lot of money on lots of power, you can't achieve good results. I've hooked up a 12 volt to 120 volt power inverter for my truck and I hope to submit some video from the Sierra mountains. It's too bad some of the best devices don't get more coverage. I love this thing.

In ideal soil conditions the thing works great. One problem is the rubber things that hold the hose to the Bull Digger always kept popping off. This problem was solved by using some hose clamps. The next problem is the hose kept clogging in moist soil and having to flip it over to clear the clog. Does not do well with roots. If your soil has small rocks and dry soil it works well. Otherwise rent a post hole digger.

First off this is my first product review. I have a really bad back, but love to do yard work which I have not really been able to do much do to my back. I've really been wanting to put a 4x4 post in a flower bed to have a fine climb up. I had been looking for a product that would allow me to still be able to dig in the garden. I was able to use the bull digger to dick a 2 foot hole and my back is not hurting. That is a large feat. Plus it didn't take very long. I am sure someone with a good back could do it faster, but my wife was impressed how fast I did it and that I wasn't hurting. Great product and I will be telling everyone about it! Thanks for making a product that makes a job easier.

This is really best described as a soil removal device and should be used in conjunction with clam diggers and a breaker bar. Use the clam diggers to start yer hole, then suck out the dirt. Use the tines on the 'Digger' to break up any small roots or the root mat if present. If the soil is dry and loose, keep a goin' with the 'Digger' it will suck out the dirt if worked with a rotating/twisting motion around the circumference of the hole's bottom. Use the clam diggers's blades to knife into hard soil and break it up. Use the breaker bar and a sledge to loosen up really hard compacted clay or schist by penetrating the tough stuff with the tapered end of the bar again all around the bottom of your hole. Suck out the dirt/clay/rock with the 'Digger' and Bob's your uncle. Excellent! No better way to get the loosened soil from the bottom of your hole!

However, you really cannot use a paper filter with this process. It will clog in minutes and render the gizmo useless. You may use the foam "wet" filter for the shop vacuum. This filter is porous foam and won't clog and can be shaken out after each hole, or each time you have to empty the vacuum. Of course, the filter is porous foam, so fine dust will roil out of the top of the shop vacuum. Very dirty! You'll want to stay 6-8' away from that dust cloud, so you must use a lengthy hose on your shop vacuum: 10-12' will be best.

Expensive, messy, but essential for certain work where an auger is not feasible, where hole diameter is small, where you are working alone, or where soil excavation must be "surgical" Put one in your arsenal if you are a professional who does a lot of this type of work.

Only works on loose soil, takes a long time for anything harder, does not work for clay type soil without digging or breaking up the soil first.
