Wish I'd read these reviews first! Absolutely useless, complete waste of money.
DO NOT BUY!!!!
As others have said - it fell to pieces as soon as I started using it!

Wish I'd seen other reviews before buying this piece of rubbish. Sounds like I did well for it to last long enough to get 3 posts in, by which time major chunks had broken off the end - and I'm not exactly the Incredible Hulk. Goes back for refund tomorrow. Do NOT buy it.

This tool started falling apart as soon as it was used (i.e. hit). It lasted about 5 hits and then broke into pieces - totally useless! I know it was cheap but it should still have been up to the job. Ended up using an old piece of wood we found in the garage and that worked much better!

It broke in several pieces on the second hit. Poor quality and much too weak.

made out of cheep plastic. I used it one time for one post spike. It was cheaply made. It's better to cut off a piece of 4x4 or 3x3 off the fence post than use this product.

It started breaking up with the first spike I used it on, and after the second it had shattered and was useless. The material it is made of even feels too brittle. If I could find the receipt I would return it for a refund. I'm putting the rest in with a solid bit of one of the posts I'm replacing, which cost nothing.

After 2 metposts it was starting to break up. After 4 it was in pieces and totally unuseable. The ground was an earth flower bed with no rocks in and the mallet was just 4lb so hardly a sledge hammer. Homebase really should question whether or not they sell this as it does not do the job it claims to be designed for. Waste of money and a day lost in the garden as the shop is closed today so I can't even replace it....grrrrrrr. Over priced for such an under performer!
