Who might have manufactured this blade and post hole digger

Cockshutt sold these in 56 and they have similar part numbers and model numbers. I suspect the same manufacturer. The post hole digger is quite novel with a bearing near the bottom of the auger. Appreciate any help.

Yes the one pictured in my post is a Roper, made in Zanesville, OH

Popular on the "Farm Jeep" after WWII

Digger looks like a Roper. I've only ever seen their PHD and the robot header height control they made for combines. They might have made other things. Started as Roper Iron Works then became Roper-Wright.

All I ever heard of was the Roper-Wright header control and they did work good. Had them on 4 different combines. Junked float springs to put them on.

You guys sure nailed it! Thanks so much. Both blade and digger were made by Roper when I bore down a little more. Yes the top is pretty much shaped just like that one. They made blades for Jeep as well as diggers. In 58 they were had a contract signed with GM per the Zanesville newspaper to supply diggers for 4 wheel drive trucks.

I haven't a clue who might have made those items but simply to say tractor manufacturers did sell other product brands like those illustrated. As an example, in New Zealand I have a Danuser 3pt blade and a Danuser post driver, both sold by Case. The blade is labeled Case and I'm not sure about the post driver, might have only Danuser plate. Long time since I have seen them.
