Side-Mount Post Hole Digger For Tractors
"It provides you with a great view of the auger at all times, which also makes it safer to use," says Ed Parsons.
The hydraulic-operated digger bolts to the tractor frame between the front and rear tires. The boom is raised or lowered by a hydraulic cylinder while a hydraulic motor is used to operate the auger. Both the cylinder and motor operate off tractor hydraulics. The boom hydraulically positions the digger in-side the wheelbase of the tractor for trans-port.
The company offers two models of hydraulic post hole diggers - the 510 which can handle augers up to 12 in. in diameter, and the 1020 which can handle augers up to 24 in. in diameter.
Model 510 sells for $1,149 and model 1020 for $1,174. Prices do not include auger.
