Why Do I Need a Hand Digger?

A good quality hand digger makes digging holes and plugs much easier. A traditional shovel is fine, too, but a hand digger lets you dig a smaller hole and requires less energy. The easier you can dig holes, find treasure, and replace the hole, the quicker you can move on to the next target. Small hand diggers are perfect for digging plugs in grassy areas. The plugs come out easily and can be replaced easily. There will be no evidence of any damage.

One Last Scoop

Overall, the πŸ‘‰ Garrett Edge Digger is a good quality hand shovel. It would be better with certain modifications, however. Some users have reported the handle disconnecting from the blade. I have never encountered this issue, but it is something to keep in mind.
