    Does a Frontier PHD100 post hole digger fit a 1025R?

    My dealer just called and claimed it won't fit (which sounds like BS) and they are trying to talk me into a smaller Woods unit that's almost the same price.

    My name is Brett.

    The PHD100 will fit your 1025R. The PHD100 is rated from 18 to 30 PTO HP. Your 1025R has 18 rear PTO HP. I don't know why your local dealer told you it would not work with your unit.

    I work as a Sales Representative for Mutton Power Equipment. If you would like a quote on a PHD100 just message me.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks, Brett, I appreciate the info.

    My guess is that the dealer is trying to get rid of a woods TPD25 they have sitting on their lot to clear inventory. The sales guy was talking to me about it when I was in yesterday.

    Thanks again.

    Does the 3pt hitch on your tractor lift high enough to get the auger bit off the ground? I could see that being an issue on the smaller tractors using a PHD designed for a bigger tractor.

    AFAIK the PHD100 is designed for compact tractors and it's also listed as compatible in the attachment brochure, the 1 Series brochure and the build to order configurator on John Deere's website. So, I'm going to guess that since JD says its compatible in three different places and I have two dealers that say it's compatible....well, it must be a duck.

    The only PHD suitable for the 1025R is the PHD100 based on the required PTO ratings. Anything bigger than that would not work because the actual PHD unit itself is bigger in size. Also, the top link on the tractor is removed anytime a PHD model is hooked up, so to answer your question, yes the 3pt hitch will lift high enough to get the auger bit off the ground. I have some pictures of a 2305 I have with a PHD100 on it. Please see attached.

    Because of the smaller rear tires on the 1025, it does limit the ability to run a post hole digger. But the Frontier unit you are talking about works, and I have the PHD from Tractor Supply (County Line brand) that works.

    Post augers are one of the things you have to watch for on a "limited" cat 1 hitch. Limited means due to the tractor sitting lower to the ground over a standard compact, some implements won't fit. Post diggers are a big one. Putting the wrong one on will result in the tractor not being able to lift the auger off the ground. Stick with the PHD100. Last thing you want is to spend money on something that won't work.
