I used something similar quite a lot for fence posts in SA
It did'nt use a worm though, just a tube with two cutting teeth
at an angle for cutting the hole!
It was ok in softish soil but not so good in hard soil!
I think the worm you show would be better, especially if used
with a power source!

Re: post hole tool

I've got one of those as well as the double bladed spade which I'm eventually going to shove on ebay.

If you're interested, then pm me and you can have them for the cost of postage, rounded up to the nearest pound. I'll let you know the cost of this before you commit yourself, in case it proves prohibitive.
