USING THE POSTHOLE DIGGER
Drive the posthole digger into the spot where
the hole is to be dug.
Hold the handles slightly separated near the top
and bring the blades down sharply into the soil by force
of the arms.
Pull the handles apart to grasp the earth out of
the hole and lift digger out of hole.
Continue the process until the hole is the
required size and depth.
CARE AND CLEANING OF DIGGING TOOLS
Tools should be cleaned often after each use
and metal parts oiled before storing.
Never use a tool other than for the job it was
Store all digging tools in their proper places
when not in use.
Replace defective handles immediately.
Treat wooden handles occasionally with linseed
oil to prevent drying out or splintering.
