I'm not sure if it does or not, but I don't see how anybody can use these without wasting a wrist, shoulder, rib. hip or .....

I don't see 'safe' here at all.

it's got a grade 8 bolt as a sheer pin holding the auger on,
what more safety do you need :)

Personally wouldn't want to use one. I've seen several landscape contractors use them with 2 people many times.

Bunch of videos with people riding them.

I have one hanging in the garage.... it does work quite well actually. It helps to have a second person holding on.... Back in the day, I put 60 4x4 posts with one. Now that I have the tractor with a PHD, I wouldn't think of touching the HF one!

Well, my word to the wise is don't buy the HF multi size step drill sets and expect to drill anything but aluminum and plastic. They don't cut the mustard on mild steel. Instant dull. Total bust. They are cheap and cheaply made. Save yourself some grief and get the Irwin or DeWalt step drills. Much better.

Of course they aren't as cheap either but unlike the HF step drills, you can actually drill steel with them.

Drills, blades, etc. in general are all items I tend to avoid buying from HF.
