this is so true, do not attempt to use one by yourself if there are any trees in the area. I am a hefty 220lb strong like bull person, this thing has thrown me, no matter how much i've thrown my hips into it. homeowner beware. Dig one hole first, experience the rocks, roots, debris, old bricks, etc. that might have been used for fill.

For those of you not familiar with post hole digging and don't want to take on the challenge of a power auger, there is also the hand operated twist auger that is much faster than the standard clambshell shown. There are single operator power augers
available also. These too have a kick to them and definitely not recommended for
the novice. If you don't want to work up a sweat - hire someone with a PTO unit.
