At some point I need to plant two 600 foot rows of evergreen trees, and another 200 foot row of evergreens
I don’t foresee needing to dig any footers/post holes in the near future, although future needs are unknown.
From what I can tell a 1025R can tolerate a 36 inch auger very well, and maybe a 42 inch auger if you’re OK with occasional dragging. From what I can tell a 48 inch auger is difficult to manage/transport on a 1025R, but please, anyone with experience, refute or support that claim.
Frost line in my location is 48 inches. I don’t think I can get an auger long enough on my 1025R to dig to the frost line. I understand some folks start the hole with the auger and then finish with manual post hole digger
Would a post hole digger be a good addition to my implements given the stated needs? I do have a 260 backhoee
