Post Hole Diggers

Removing old and setting new posts using concrete is the most expensive and time consuming wood fence post repair and requires you to auger dirt and dig post size holes in the ground and then replace the entire post.  A post hole digger tool is one of those tools that you probably won’t use that often but are essential to getting the job done. If you try digging a post hole with a shovel, your hole will be more wide than it is deep. This makes it especially challenging when replacing a broken post.

A cheaper alternative to buying or renting a post hole digger is using a Wood Fence Post Mender system from Fence Daddy.  It reinforces wood posts without having to dig it out of the ground.
