"Pogo" Post Hole Digger Uses Your Weight to Dig
"Our post hole digger lets you push down with your entire body instead of just using your arms," says Mike Luck of Flint, Mich., who designed and patented a new "pogo" post hole digger.
  It works like a conventional post hole digger except that there are foot rests that slide up and down the handles. They're held in place by pins that go into a series of holes spaced about 6 in. apart.
  Luck uses just his arms to start the hole and then starts jumping on the foot rests. As the hole gets deeper, he moves the foot rests and handles upward.
  "I've used our prototype to dig holes up to 53 inches deep, but I think it could be made to go even deeper," says Luck. "Jumping on the foot rests produces so much downpressure that it will even cut through tree roots."
  Luck is looking for a manufacturer.
