I ended up with a TSC Post Hole Digger last year as part of the deal when I sold a wood chipper. It came with a 12" and 14" auger. I finally got around to testing it last weekend and it worked OK.
Here's my question - I am wanting to plant a LOT of trees around here. I HATE to dig with a shovel, so I'd like to use the PHD as much as possible. But, the 14" auger doesn't make a big enough hole for the size trees/shrubs that I'm planning on putting in the ground.
I talked to a nursery person who recommended either a 24" or a 30" auger. Do you think that the TSC PHD can handle something that big? I can control the feed depth with my 3 point controls. And, I barely ran the 14" past idle and the tractor never worked up a sweat.
I was going to rent a 24" auger from a local place, but theirs was a 3" shaft and my PHD is only a 2" shaft, so no dice.
Just looking for opinions on how big can I go. Opinions on a good place to pick one up would be welcome too.
