What's a good Tractor Post Hole Digger

So what makes a good tractor post hole digger? As the name suggests a tractor post hole digger is just that, a post hole digger. While all post hole diggers may dig holes there are a number of differences in them that can make a tractor post hole digger a great tool or nothing more than a pain in the a$$.

Hoop Positioning

Let’s start off with the tubular hoop at the bottom of the boom near the tractor hitch. This hoop is used to help stabilize and lift the auger out of the ground. If you search the internet, you’ll find a lot of these hoops designed under the boom shaft however this can lead to problems down the road. It’s strongly recommended to find a digger where the tubular hoop is on the top of the boom which will ultimately give you more lift without the need to worry about bending the boom.

Adjustable Boom Stick

While it may not always be needed, having an adjustable boom stick can be very convenient and trust me if end up with a tractor post hole digger without an adjustable boom then you’ll surely be needing one.

Metal Gear Box Housing

Another part that is normally skimped on is the gear box housing. A lot of manufactures use plastic case housings which over time crack and end up breaking off. This leaves the gear box open and subjected to weather, dust, dirt and foreign objects and shortens the life span of the gear box. Metal housing may rust on you but will last and protect the gear box for a greater period of time.

How to Select the Right Side Post Hole Digger

When selecting a tractor post hole digger, it’s very important to get the post hole digger for the job as every job can be different. There are a number of factors weight in on selecting the right post hole digger for the job. First thing you want to consider is how big a hole will you need so you can select an auger or at least have an idea of how big a digger you will need. The size of your tractor is also very important so that you can match the digger with the HP of your tractor and the auger with the digger. To ensure you get the right equipment it's always best to speak with a professional first before you make a purchase. This will save you a lot of time and money.
