which digger to get??
Quote this message in a reply
Ok friends. I'm not one to waste money if I can help...just like most of us. I'm looking into buying a digger. I'm kinda stuck between what to get. I've been looking at a Sampson T-handle or Predator Piranha. Then serrated or not? I don't really dig in 'root-sy' areas. Any help would appreciated!!

I would go with the Piranha. In fact that will most likely be my next significant purchase. Even if you don't do rootsy areas regularly you might get invited to do a woods hunt and it will be handy.

I have 3 best friends. Their names are Ace 350 , AT Pro ,  and a Fisher F 75 but I like people too.

that's exactly what I've been leaning towards getting. Seems like everyone talks pretty of that shovel

Hello Hosedraggar996, I like the Mini Samson that I bought this past fall/winter. It was around 65 bucks and it works great. I usually get down on my knees due to back problems and try not to aggravate it. So I have the short handle type with a T at the top. Some folks get the longer one and use their foot to push down on
Either way you can't go wrong with it
Just my two cents......

Interesting Tony. I have a 40" ground shark that I love. I love being able to push with my foot then pop open the hole without much bending. This summer though I am going to do a little more woodsy areas and that is why I am looking at the Predator line of shovels.

What do you mean when you say digger? Long handled shovel or trowel type?  Where will you be digging?  Parks, private yards, fields or woods?

I have the Samson with serrated edge. I changed to this digger after using a lesch digger for 25 years and wonder how I ever did without it. If you dig in hard ground there is nothing better. Your digging time will be cut in half.
