    Hydraulic PHD Loader Attached

    Hey everyone, I did some searching on here and found a little bit of info but figured i would ask out right. Why dont people run more loader attached PHD? It seems the biggest problem with the 3 point is that they are PTO driven and can't reverse. So why dont more people run the front hydraulic loader attached post hole diggers? Do tractors like the 3025e not have enough Hydraulic flow? My experience is with bobcats running post hole diggers and they are wonderful, so i would prefer to run one loader mounted. If not loader mounted then 3 point, but hydraulic operated (so you can reverse). Any input or something i'm missing her would be awesome. Thank you!!

    p.s. i have 20 hours on my 2017 3025e and its working like a dream. Hasn't disappointed me yet.

    BINGO! Take a look at everything attachments. Their skid steer mount PHDs start at requiring 6GPM and quickly go up to needing 35+. Most of the users here on GTT would don't have that available. You'd have to be using a 30XXR machine or larger. Most of those Bobcats have 20+ GPM available.

    Plus, $2,600 starting price for a hydraulic loader mounted unit vs. $650 for a 3pt unit.

    We have a loader mount on the farm.
    Worked great on the 4240 we had when we bought it, and now on the 7700.
    Dad tried it on the 2640 once, not enough hydraulic power to keep it going.
    Can't imagine how miserable it would be to attempt to use with a CUT!
