Oshkosh offers Split Handle and Solid Handle Post Hole Diggers. The blades are made of our special alloy steel. The blades are attached by welding instead of riveting making a durable joint with no rivets to shear off. The fulcrum members are made of heavily constructed, channel-shaped steel – no castings. The diameter of the circle circumscribed by the digger blades is approximately 6 inches. Two bolts hold each handle to the digger head making them easy to replace when necessary.
The Split handles are used with a front to back motion. The Solid handles start out together and are pulled apart when using. The operating action for the solid-handle digger begins with the handle together. The handles are then pulled directly apart to capture the load. With the split-handle digger, the operator uses a forward-and-back motion sliding the handles past each other. The split handle design has a wider blade opening, which allows for a larger hole to be dug.
