I get one stuck all the time. I have a little tractor that's too short in the drawers to pull an auger. I move the tractor back and forth an inch or so to enlarge the hole a little and then use a farm jack to lift it out. I have since built a wooden frame so I can stair step the auger into the ground. It had been grabbing like a screw until the tractor couldn't turn it anymore. Letting it down only about 6" at a time really helps.

I have to do that with the hydraulic auger we hang off the bucket of the 4020, even while running it in reverse. Especially with the 3 inch bit in the springtime. I've had a back wheel off the ground trying to pull that stupid little thing out of the ground. The smaller bit seems to push dirt aside instead of bringing it out, to the point that it wedges itself in. The larger bit isn't as bad.

The one we have is a Rhino, same gearbox as a 3 pt unit, but has a spacer and hydraulic motor bolted onto it.

Stephen....What a great idea! I've got them stuck too and never thought of that to prevent it from getting stuck in the first place. You get the GOLD STAR for the day!
