I'm going to be using one of the above mentioned for fencing around the garden to keep out the deer. Will be using the 1025R, watched a lot of video's, read a few articles. Seems to me that some people implied that the JD PHD100, due to it's sizing overall works better on the somewhat limited augering abilities of the 1026R. I see it is around 500 dollars more the Countyline, but willing to pony up if it really makes that much difference.
I have a lot of fence posts to put in, will be using a 6" auger for the majority of the holes, from what the neighbors say, there are zero rocks here in our area. Sandy, loamy soil, no roots. Quite a contrast from the last place.
