    Great machine

    published

    Over the years I have had a few post hole diggers this one out does them all as a one man machine, would recommend this digger to anyone, worth every cent

    Purchased in January 1998.

    From a pro fencer

    published

    I'm a professional fencer, I've used several top brand machines over the past 17yrs but the only one I use and recommend is a Tanaka. Is worth it's weight in gold. The dig assist is a must if you want to save your back, wrists and shoulders. Tuned properly with the dig assist attached this machine will allow you to dig one handed. It's strong, well built and east to move around. Top machine that will out last any other machines.

    I only used a 150 and 200 so I’m not sure but there is plenty of tork in the machine, but use a extension arm on the machine, saves your arms and shoulders

    No you cannot - it tops out at 10 inch/250mm. Nor would you want to go higher. Even with the dig assist option (a big long arm on a pair of wheels), it still kicks like an army mule with the 250mm auger. Go any higher on the auger width and it would get flat out dangerous. ANY petrol hand held digger with a 400mm auger would either break the unit or break your arm(s) with its kicking. In my opinion, above 300mm you are in tractor territory for safety reasons.

    The fuel ratio is 50:1, as I believe all Tanakas are
