Two person post hole auger

Two man post hole auger.

We rented this two person post hole auger to dig our garden fence post holes.

After doing a few holes we decided to choose the half day rental which was enough time to get half way done. It was very hard work and we discovered doing that many holes in one morning was pretty close to our physical limit.

You know you're getting old when you can't do in four hours what you used to be able to do in an hour and a half. Sigh...

We have a one-man auger that we bought a few years ago. It’s so much better than digging by hand, but the extra horsepower of a two-man would be great. I can commiserate at how demanding using an auger is!
