Use the extremely useful, no-nonsense Hole Former to create pilot holes for both our Fruit and Vegetable Cages and below ground models of our Garden Arches in stony, rock hard soil.
The stubborn, 3.25mm gauge steel bar defies all sorts of unfavourable soil conditions - stones, flint, brick, builders' debris and heavily compacted ground - to heroically create the perfect holes for arch and fruit cage uprights and will withstand heavy and prolonged hammering from a mallet or sledge hammer. The 25.4mm diameter by 800mm long steel home former can also be used when installing sockets if the conditions prove too tough to drive in directly.
- Hole Former measures 25.4mm Dia x 800mm
- Steel is 3.25mm thick
- Designed for use in all unfavourable soil conditions
- Creates perfect pilot hole for fruit cage and arch uprights
- Can also be used to install sockets in adverse soil
- Tough enough to withstand heavy hammering through compacted and stony soils
I used this to help erect an Espalier Growing Frame. As per some other reviews, I found it essential and it made a potentially difficult job very easy.
This is essential if you want to put a fruit cage up without too much hassle.
I'd recommend anybody to get the hole former. I must admit I thought it was maybe a little excessive but it proved its worth by making installation of a rose arch so simple and so precise. Our soil has occasional flints at depth and by 40cm I might have been getting down to chalk but the hole former did the job. I've filed off its battle scars so it is ready for its next job.
