Pickup Rear End Drives Post Hole Auger
Years ago my dad and cousin cut part of the rear end off a pickup and attached it to a 7-in. dia. post hole auger that's pto-driven off our Ferguson 20 tractor. They cut off part of the axle on each side of the differential, then drilled a hole through the stub shaft and bolted the auger shaft on. They made their own pto shaft and attached it to the differential's yoke. A homemade steel frame that attaches to the tractor 3-pt. is bolted to the stub shaft on the other side of the differential and also supports the differential.
  It doesn't look fancy, but we've used it a lot over the years and have dug a lot of holes with it. (Ervin Novak, 5515 Oak Grove Road, Ennis, Texas 75119 ph 972 875-2942)
