Default Grizzly digger review

Well Santa brought me some new goodies this year so I thought I would share my thoughts about them.

Grizzly digger from Dirt Digger Tools: http://www.dirtdiggertools.com/the-grizzly.html

If the Lesche Model 76 and Model 31 had a baby, this is what it would look like. The model 76 has the serrations for easy root cutting but has always been a pain trying to scoop dirt from the hole, the model 38 is great for scooping dirt from the hole but has no provision for cutting roots. This tool does both! I have put this thing through its paces this week and it has performed excellent. This thing is heavy duty with nice clean welds and is comfortable to use. It is well suited for rough terrain especially with this NY weather as the top 1" or so is frozen solid. I'm also recommend Buzz Wilsons Raptor style sheath for this tool as it fits it like a glove and is easy in and out of the sheath. Here is a pic of it between the 2 Lesche models.

Ok this is getting bad, it seems like I'm the only guy in the north too much of a wuss to get out and dig..

Choppa, cool info looks like you've done some good digging since Christmas already. I too got one of these diggers about 2-3 weeks ago but yet to stick it in the earth. So I can certainly vouch for the apparent durability and craftsmanship. Hopefully mine will get dirty soon. LOL

Thanks for the review

I checked their website and they have new "improved" models coming out in Feb. I like the design of them and will probably get one...I want to see what the improvements are first though.
