How large an auger can a 2032r handle for tree planting? Would like 18" wide.

Second question does anyo e know where in CNY I might be able to rent a 3pt model?
Thx

I would say 18" is pretty big for most ground conditions here in NY.

I don't think you can get larger than a 12" for a cat 1 3-point PHD.

Yes, 18 inch augers are available. I've got one.
Needed it to drill footings for my deck.
(County required 14 inch, but 18 was the smallest I could buy that was at least 14).

Welcome to GTT. What tractor is driving your 18" auger?

Sunbelt Rentals is the "biggie" around me but your dealer may know of other places. Some dealers rent out equipment short term too.

My neighbors have a 24" auger bit for a Cat I post hole digger. They used it for planting small trees on the back of an older Massey Ferguson.
Why would you need an auger for that? :lolol:

Auger size is related to the type of gearbox & gear ratio of the digger. Go see Everything Attachments video on post hole diggers.

Well it *was* a 770. I just upgraded to a 1025R FILB w/MMM
Still have the bit, but haven't tried it on the 1025 yet, I've only had the 9" auger on that so far.
(but I've only had the 1025 for 15 days).

Luckily for the 770, deck footings only had to go down 12 inches (or maybe it was 18).
The only one that hit a significant rock, I just relocated the post.
