I will never rent or buy a self powered posthole digger - man killers. Takes two very strongmen, and would be better to have three or four. I have tractor mounted PTO driven unit. Holes are a breeze.

Ray, I too have a 3 point auger with a 6, 9 and 12 inch bit. BUT, if your not lucky enough to have one then there is an auger that can be run by one person and it's NOT a man killer. We rented them and everyone that used them loved them. Every now and then someone would come in and complain about how they almost broke their leg and I would ask them to set it up in the parking lot exactly how they were using it. Each time, they were bypassing the safety switch and not using the torque bar even though there were instructed to use it only with the torque bar. The excuse was usually the same, "I didn't have enough space to use it that way". I asked one guy how many holes he drilled, he said 20. I asked how many he did with the bar on, he admitted none. He still wanted a refund. I asked him if he got his job done, he said yes but since it almost killed him I should give him a refund. I then installed the torque tube and asked him to follow me out front where we had a small grassy area. I asked him to drill a hole for me and tell me if he thought it would be fair that I give him a refund. He griped but did drill the hole. He didn't say a word, just walked back to his truck and drove off. My guys got a good laugh as they watched him knowing what I was up to.
Funny thing was, he came back the following weekend and rented a tiller. He never did mention the previous weekend and sure didn't ask for a refund again!
