Hydraulic Post Hole Digger
"Our hydraulically powered post hole digger mounts on a front-end loader bucket or a simple 3-pt. mounted boom. It requires less maintenance and is safer and easier to use than pto-driven post hole diggers," says Don Hollis, Valley Engineering, Franklin, Neb.
The post hole digger's auger is driven by the tractor's hydraulic system. It simply hangs from a steel bracket that bolts to the side of the bucket.
"It lets you mount the auger ahead of you for greater visibility and less fatigue," says Hollis. "There are no broken driveshafts or shear pins. Downpressure is applied by the bucket."
Sells for $995 (not including auger or hydraulic hoses) when used with augers up to 14 in. dia. A more powerful unit designed for larger augers sells for $1,335. Augers are available in 6 to 24-in. diameters. A 9-in. dia. auger sells for $170.
