Hello everyone, I have a speeco 3 point PHD that I’ve been running for a while now with a 12” auger bit. I really want a 12” extension to get down a little deeper for posts. I’m struggling to find one, I had found one from rural king but it was back ordered for 2 months and I gave up. If anyone has bought one before or has some more info for me that would be useful I would really appreciate it. Thank you!

Btw this is on a 2017 JD 3025E and has performed flawlessly. Besides a stiff neck from looking backwards it has been wonderful. Any questions are welcome about that as well.

Just my 2 cents, if you can't find what you are looking for, your local welding shop may be able to help you out and fab something together that will fill the bill. I've never heard of an auger extension but you have me thinking of one now. Good Luck.........

Having one made is an option. Most of my experience with PHD ‘s is with a bobcat setup, and we always had different length extensions. I’m reading that the auger shaft size is different on those bobcat setups as well as some can come in an octagon shape vs round. So now I’m really confused why the heck there aren’t any for these setups. I’m not asking for a crazy length just a little bit to get me an additional 10-12” so I’m not burying the gearbox in the ground.

Thank you for the reply!

A few months ago I was contemplating the idea of getting a PHD. I was looking at a Frontier PHD100 and, of course being a limited cat-1 3 pt, a 36" auger to go with. I too wanted to find an extension for it. Searching the web, the extension from Rural King was the only one I came across. Disappointed now to hear about you finding out it's a major backorder. I would have thought it would be more readily available. I guess there isn't that much demand for them. Bummer.
