This is one of those “must have” tools if you dig holes.
So much more effective than a crowbar that bounces off tree roots and rocks. This tool turns digging into an easy task that becomes addictive whilst standing in a vertical position and lifting the tool with the large diameter hardwood handle that won’t leave you with blisters or get hot in the summer sun.
With the weight and wide cutting edge of the tool head even digging very hard ground is easy. This tool makes digging possible for anyone.
Watch the video below on how to get the best out of the Mighty Digging Bar.
Please note: The Mighty Digging Bar because of its assembled length requires some self-assembly, the handle needs fitting to the head which is a very simple process.
Testimonial: “Actually I feel rather pleased tonight because I managed to get rid of an old dead apricot tree stump. That involved digging away the soil to expose the lateral roots and then hacking through them.
The digging bar excelled at both tasks. A spade can’t hack, and an axe can’t get into a tight space. The digging bar is a very well designed tool, and it feels good using it - nowhere near as heavy as a crowbar, and far more effective.
Is it a traditional tool? I’ve never seen anything quite like it. Anyhow I’m indebted to you for making it available.

The length of the handle on digging or slashing tools is quite a personal subject.
To ensure the effectiveness of these tools the length of the handle will grossly be dictated by your height and strength.A heavy tool head such as our Brush Hook requires a shorter handle so the weight of the tool can be wielded for effective cutting. With a long handle it would require enormous effort to move the tool fast enough to sever even the softest grasses.
We fit a long handle to our Fern Hook which is a lighter tool which can be swung for cutting or reaping placing the user away from sometimes prickly plants such as blackberry or gorse.
Petersen Hoe handle length will be predicted by your height. A person of short stature will need a short handle. A taller person will require longer handle so the falling blade will enter the ground at an effective angle without bending over.
With this in mind the longer handle fitted to your tool may require shortening which is easily done with a saw. I recommend shortening your handle progressively until the hoe feels comfortable to be used continuously.
