    Digging Tool

    I lost my digging tool that came with my Fisher Edge II. It worked pretty well but I was wondering before I bought a new one, what is the best one to use overall.

    Re: Digging Tool

    There is a plastic trowl & rake that Home Depto sell for .99 ea. I have used them for years. You can load them up with soil from the target area and hold them up to your coil with no interference! This is a much quicker process than using a metal trowl. I have only broken one in many years of use. These new black tools are very strong, and at only .99 they are worth a try! Oh they also come in two widths! These are for park type use. For extremely rough and deeper digs in the outback I use a shover caller the shark. It is all metal from tip to T handle. The blade is app. 8" wide and app 12" long. it has teeth on one side of the blade to cut roots. It is a real beast!! I picked it up at a garden supply co. years ago. I guess it all depends on where your digging.

    Lesche M-85 is a primo tool. I have a Trans-Mississippi Electronics made digging tool that is marvelous.



    Guess it depends on your soil. A plastic digger is worthless hereabouts in the rock and clay.

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    Re: Digging Tool

    After going thru many cheap diggers I was going to buy a lesche and came across this one. It is the upgraded version of the true temper digger that you can get from Lowes. It is fantastic for cuttting plugs with the serrated edge for roots and the knife edge.

    I have used it to chip through gravel and can put all my weight on it to pry on the heaviest plug and it has no give to it at all. I would recommend this as a cheaper alternative to the lesche.

    Here are some pics.

    Oh heck... how have I not seen this before?!! I use the Ames digger with a Corona sheath (even though I now have a Lesch), which is decent... but that sheath looks like it's made for that thing! And I definitely like black & gray combo of the handle too.
    Where can I find one? And do they run the same price??

    Re: Digging Tool


    I like my Leshe not just for digging.
    Can be an effective deterrent to bad guys and loose dogs.
    I did add a strong magnet from a disc drive to the hilt.
    Helps find those rusty staples that sometimes torment me.

    The sheath came with it, it has a clip that holds the tool in place so it doesnt fall out when moving about. This one was 29$ incl shipping from Amazon with lifetime warranty, only other place I have seen them is on ebay.

    For another 15$ or so I could have gotten a lesche but I like to try different things. So far after much use and abuse this has proven to be an able tool. Makes digging so much easier when you have something you can rely on...

    Sweet, thanks! The clip that holds it in would be REALLY convenient, as mine "sometimes" falls out while I'm moving about.

    Here's the link...

    I saved the link because I'll get one of these later... since I just ordered two matching 3-watt K2 Luxeon LED flashlights & a 3-watt K2 Luxeon LED headlamp for the Chisholm Trail Hunt 3 in a few weeks! Along with my plane tickets and hunt fees, I'm done spending for a while.
