I was wondering if someone makes a post hole digger for our backhoe that can mount on our tractor? It can go on the loader or backhoe I do not have a 3pt hitch for it nor does it have a pto installed so it would have to be hydraulic. We have tried the little 3pt posthole diggers in the past but they don't have enough weight on them to break through the clay we have.

I was thinking of building one also that would run off the backhoe controls. What i thought i was going to have to do is add another remote to the hydraulic system to drive the hydraulic motor to turn the post hole digger. I could probably just use a hydraulic ball valve to turn it off and on. I found this site that seems like they have just what i wanted. I was looking at least the M series http://www.equipmentland.com/categories/backhoe_attachment/diggers.shtml

They sell models that are made to go through solid rock, so our really hard clay shouldnt be a problem. Then they have a mounting bracket that will mount it to the bucket.

Then of course the tooling required I was looking at there rock augers.

I have seen hydraulic ones in ebay "implements" that go on skid steers that you might be able to adapt. If you mount on back hoe it would have a lot of flexibility in placement as well as being able to push into the ground.

I have a 480B and have thought of taking off rear bucket and making a bracket that would let a hydraulic digger swivel in all directions so its always straight and run it with the bucket hoses and controls . Be real handy to reach into those hard to reach places .

Today's Featured Article - On the Road with Dave Gohl: Tractors and Farming - by Dave Gohl. I never thought I'd live to see the day, when I could call myself a farmer. What allows me to say this? Well, when our family moved to our 20 acre site near New Prague, Minnesota, I had one thought in mind. You guessed it, farm it somehow. A little history is in order. In my younger days, mom, dad and my brother made frequent visits to dad's youngest brother Pete, who took over the home farm from grandpa MIke. It was the typical set-up, milk cows, pigs & chickens. In the winter, we'd play ... [Read Article]
