SAFETY RULES
ATTENTION! BECOME ALERT! YOUR SAFETY IS INVOLVED!
Safety is a primary concern in the design and
manufacture of our products. Unfortunately, our
efforts to provide safe equipment can be wiped
out by an operator’s single careless act.
In addition to the design and configuration of
equipment, hazard control and accident prevention are dependent upon the awareness, concern, judgement, and proper training of
personnel involved in the operation, transport,
maintenance, and storage of equipment.
It has been said, “The best safety device is an
informed, careful operator.” We ask you to be
that kind of operator.

OPERATION
The operator is responsible for the safe operation of
the equipment. The operator must be properly trained.
Operators should be familiar with the equipment, the
tractor, and all safety practices before starting operation. Read the safety rules and safety decals on page 4
to page 8.
Post hole diggers are designed for one-man operation.
You must always dig holes while sitting in the tractor
seat. It is the responsibility of the operator to see
that no one else is within twenty-five feet (25’) of
the digger when it is operating. Accidents have
occurred when more than one person is in the immediate area of the operating equipment. Be sure no one
else is near you when you operate this product.
DANGER
„ Do not put digger into service unless all shields
and guards are in place and in good condition.
Replace if damaged.
WARNING
„ Never aim auger point using hands on auger,
gearbox, boom, or driveline. Use 3-point and handle to place auger point.
„ Do not shovel dirt away from a running auger.
The shovel could be caught and thrown by auger.
„ Consult local utilities before working. Know
location of all underground cables, pipelines, overhead wires, and other hazards in working area and
avoid contact.
„ When dislodging a stuck auger, disengage PTO,
stop engine, remove key, disconnect PTO from
tractor, and turn auger backwards with a wrench.
Remove and store wrench before starting engine.
„ Keep hands, feet, hair, and clothing away from

WARNING
„ Do not put digger into service unless auger
point and all cutting edges are intact and in good
repair.
„ Keep bystanders away from equipment.
„ Shift tractor transmission into park or neutral
and set brakes before engaging PTO and digging.
„ Keep digger under control by running PTO at
slowest speed possible (no faster than half-throttle
in 540 RPM range).
CAUTION
„ Always wear relatively tight and belted clothing
to avoid getting caught in moving parts. Wear
sturdy, rough-soled work shoes and protective
equipment for eyes, hair, hands, hearing, and head;
and respirator or filter mask where appropriate.
„ Tighten all bolts, nuts, and screws to torque
chart specifications. Check that all cotter pins are
installed securely to ensure equipment is in a safe
condition before putting unit into service.
„ When digging holes, always sit in operator seat.
IMPORTANT
„ Never exceed the recommended auger capacity
of the post hole digger. The model PHD25 lightduty digger is designed for use with augers up to
12-inch diameter. Use of an incorrect auger or
auger extension can cause equipment damage,
loss of operator control and personal injury.
PREPARATION
Thoroughly read and understand your Operator’s Manuals.
Before beginning operation, clear area of objects that
wrap around the auger or might be thrown.
Contact local utility company to make certain there are
no buried gas lines, electrical cables, etc., in the work
area.
Check for ditches, stumps, holes, or other obstacles
that could cause the tractor to roll.
To dig properly, your digger must be able to raise or
lower through the highest and lowest points of your lift
arm travel without binding against the tractor frame.
Check carefully BEFORE attaching the auger. If it does
bind, adjust the tractor 3-pt. linkage so that all movement is free.
Operation 9
Use stabilizer bars, adjustable sway chains, or sway
blocks on your tractor lift arms to keep the post hole
digger from swaying side to side. Adjust as tightly as
practical for best performance. Remove or place tractor
drawbar in storage position.
dirt breaking up and being carried to the top by the

IMPORTANT
■
Post hole digger gearboxes are shipped without lubrication. Gearboxes must be serviced with
90W gear lube before operation.
■
If PTO driveline interferes with swinging drawbar, swing drawbar out of the way or remove.
OPERATING TECHNIQUE
WARNING
„ Never aim auger point using hands on auger,
gearbox, boom, or driveline. Use 3-point and handle to place auger point.
„ Do not shovel dirt away from a running auger.
The shovel could be caught and thrown by auger.
■
IMPORTANT
NEVER use body weight to help the auger penetrate the ground.
1. Position the tractor so that the auger point is
placed where the hole is to be dug.
2. Set tractor brakes. Shift transmission into park or
neutral.
3. Do not allow anyone to stand behind, or to the side
of a rotating auger.
4. Lower auger point slowly to the ground with the
PTO disengaged.
The point of the auger should be approximately 3" back
of center of the gearbox. As the auger works into the
ground, this slight angle will straighten, due to the pivoting action of the boom downward. If the auger has a
side tilt, correct with the lift arm adjustment on the tractor hitch.
If the auger tilts too far forward or to the rear, it may be
necessary to move the tractor slightly. Be careful not to
bend the auger.
With the auger point lowered to the ground, set the
engine speed to idle, then engage the PTO. Make sure
the auger point is on the ground before engaging the
PTO.
IMPORTANT
■
Under no circumstances should the PTO be run
in excess of 540 RPM.
As the auger penetrates the ground, lower the unit
slowly with the 3-point lift arms. Do not let the auger
screw itself into the ground! Auger must dig with the
10 Operation
Figure 1. Operation
Dig the hole in small steps. Dig down several inches,
then bring the auger up to let the soil clear. Repeat this
procedure until the desired depth is reached. This
allows better control of the auger and can prevent difficulties that could lead to an accident.
IMPORTANT
■
Be careful when raising the auger as high as
your tractor’s 3-point lift arms can go. This can put
the PTO shaft universal joints at an extreme angle
and cause damage to the PTO shaft! It is best to
raise the auger just enough to clear the hole when
the PTO is engaged.
■
It is recommended NOT to raise the auger while
it is running more than six (6) inches above the
ground. Once the hole is dug to the desired depth
raise the auger while rotating to bring the dirt out of
the hole.
To get a clean hole, it is sometimes best to lower the
auger into the hole with the auger turning and then,
when at the bottom, stop the rotation and raise the
auger while not turning. This brings the dirt up with little
left in the hole.
Disengage the PTO when traveling between holes.
In some types of soil it may be necessary to use the 3point lift arms to prevent the auger from screwing itself
into the ground.
When the ground is too tough to penetrate with your
cutting edges and point, sharpen or replace them and
try again. These are replaceable parts and must be in
good condition to penetrate. (An optional Hydraulic
Down Pressure Kit is available.)
MAN0290 (Rev. 6/16/2006)
If you have difficulty penetrating hard ground, refer to
the Troubleshooting section in this manual for suggestions.
DOWN FORCE KIT OPERATION
(OPTIONAL)
IMPORTANT
■
Do not connect RETURN hose to a remote outlet. Remote outlet ports are blocked in the neutral
position and will damage the hydraulic cylinder
when boom is raised.
1. Lower post hole digger using the 3-point arms and
allow auger to dig.
2. If down force is required, slowly apply down force
using the control lever for the remote outlet. Apply
force in small amounts.
3. Continue to lower the auger using the tractor 3point lift arms as the auger digs.
4. Raise auger with the 3-point lift arms. Cylinder will
retract when auger is raised out of the hole.
TRANSPORT
WARNING
„ Do not operate PTO during transport.
LODGED AUGER
WARNING
„ When dislodging a stuck auger, disengage PTO,
stop engine, remove key, disconnect PTO from
tractor, and turn auger backwards with a wrench.
Remove and store wrench before starting engine.
IMPORTANT
■
Removing a lodged auger can be dangerous
work. Be careful.
1. If the auger gets stuck in wet clay, stones or roots,
disengage the PTO immediately and turn off the
engine.
2. Turn the auger backwards several turns with a
large pipe wrench. Then attempt to raise the auger
with the 3-point lift arms. Extreme rocking or lifting
loads while trying to clear auger can cause auger,
gearbox. or boom failure.
NOTE: Do not attempt to raise the auger while
turning it with a wrench or with a wrench attached
to the auger. You could be injured if the PTO was
accidently engaged or the 3-point lift arms suddenly raised the auger.
3. Remove and store wrench before starting engine.
The post hole digger auger is free-swinging, and care
should be taken while transporting the machine.
Be sure auger is completely retracted from the hole
before attempting to move the tractor.
DO NOT transport the post hole digger while the PTO
is engaged as this could cause the universal joints of
the PTO driveline into a sharp operating angle and
cause failure of the driveline.
Pay particular close attention to the Safety Messages
regarding transport. Avoid unnecessary injuries and
equipment damage by exercising cautious, conscientious travel procedures.
Attaching the implement to the tractor increases the
overall length of the working unit. Allow additional
clearance for the implement to swing when turning.
Raise the implement as high as possible for transporting.

SHEAR BOLT REPLACEMENT
WARNING
„ Never replace shear bolt or auger retaining bolt
with a different length, or grade. Always use a
grade 2 bolt as a replacement.
Remove input guard from around driveline.
Shear bolts are important for both safety and preventing damage to the digger. Their intended function is to
break when too much force is applied.
Always replace shear bolts at the gearbox input and
output shafts with manufacturer's part or one of the
same size, length and Grade 2 specification.
Hardened bolts or bolts that are too long can cause
accidents resulting in injury or death.
The roll pin (26) prevents the driveline from coming off
gearbox shaft if the shear bolt should fail.
Replace input shield after shear bolt replacement.

OWNER SERVICE
The information in this section is written for operators
who possess basic mechanical skills. If you need help,
your dealer has trained service technicians available.
For your protection, read and follow all safety information in this manual.
WARNING
„ Before performing any service or maintenance,
lower digger to ground or block securely, turn off
tractor engine, remove key, and disconnect driveline from tractor PTO.
„ NEVER GO UNDERNEATH EQUIPMENT. Never
place any part of the body underneath equipment
or between moveable parts even when the engine
has been turned off. Hydraulic system leak-down,
hydraulic system failures, mechanical failures, or
movement of control levers can cause equipment
to drop or rotate unexpectedly and cause severe
injury or death.
• Service work does not require going underneath.
• Read Operator's Manual for service instructions or have service performed by a qualified
dealer.
„ Keep all persons away from operator control
area while performing adjustments, service, or
maintenance.
„ Keep hands, feet, hair, and clothing away from
equipment while engine is running. Stay clear of all
moving parts.
„ Keep hands and body away from pressurized
lines. Use paper or cardboard, not hands or other
body parts to check for leaks. Wear safety goggles.
Hydraulic fluid under pressure can easily penetrate
skin and will cause serious injury or death.
WARNING
„ Make sure that all operating and service personnel know that if hydraulic fluid penetrates skin, it
must be surgically removed as soon as possible by
a doctor familiar with this form of injury or gangrene, serious injury, or death will result. CONTACT A P HYS ICI AN I MME DIATE LY IF FLUID
ENTERS SKIN OR EYES. DO NOT DELAY.
CAUTION
„ Always wear relatively tight and belted clothing
to avoid getting caught in moving parts. Wear
sturdy, rough-soled work shoes and protective
MAN0290 (Rev. 6/16/2006)
equipment for eyes, hair, hands, hearing, and head;
and respirator or filter mask where appropriate.
ROUTINE MAINTENANCE
1. Check that all bolts, nuts, and screws are tight.
Checking the bolts and nuts on the cutting blades
is particularly important in rocky soil.
2. Check daily the level of the gearbox oil and top-off
up to the correct level. Check for gearbox oil leaks.
It should be noted that no warranty claim can be
submitted on a gearbox that has run dry. It is
essential that the gearbox is kept correctly filled
with gearbox oil.
3. Grease the PTO shaft daily.
4. Check the wear on the cutting blades. Sharpen
them routinely with an angle grinder or replace
when worn down too far. Keep at least two sets of
cutting blades, bolts, and nuts as spares.
LUBRICATION INFORMATION
CAUTION
„ When lubricating telescoping PTO drives, keep
fingers out of shield access slots to prevent injury.
The accompanying chart gives the frequency of lubrication in operating hours, based on normal conditions.
Severe or unusual conditions may require more frequent lubrication.
Do not let excess grease collect on or around parts,
particularly when operating in sandy areas.
Use an SAE 90W gear lube in gearbox.
Use a lithium grease of No. 2 consistency with a MOLY
(molybdenum disulfide) additive for all locations. Be
sure to clean fittings thoroughly before attaching
grease gun. When applied according to the lubrication
chart, one good pump of most guns is sufficient. Do not
over grease.

Daily lubrication of the PTO slip joint is necessary. Failure to maintain proper lubrication can result in damage
to U-joints, gearbox, tractor PTO and/or driveline.
STORAGE
1. Drain and change the oil in your gearbox.
2. Check and replace, where necessary, blades,
bolts, nuts on the machine.
3. Clean machine and touch up any rust spots that
may have appeared.
4. Replace any safety signs if damaged or painted
over.
5. Make sure PTO driveline yoke and gearbox input
shaft are clean and free of burrs. Keep well
lubricated to prevent galling of yoke and input shaft
when shear bolt becomes sheared.
tor. Doing this, will cause rusting of the auger, but it is
easy for one man to handle the unit.
REPLACE CUTTING EDGE
Cutting edges and center points are replaceable. They
should be sharpened or replaced when worn.
1. Remove carriage bolt (4), star washer (5), and hex
nut (6) holding cutting edge to the auger.
2. Replace or sharpen cutting edge. Install carriage
bolt, star washer, and hex nut previously removed.
3. Remove center point (2) by turning counterclockwise. A pipe wrench may be required if tip has
been on auger for a long period of time.
6. Keep all shields in place. Order new shields if
damaged or missing.
7. Keep cutting edges sharp. Sharp cutting edges dig
easier and better. Outer cutting edges on larger
augers wear faster than inner cutting edges;
switching teeth will even wear.
8. Store implement in clean, dry location.
REMOVE DIGGER FROM TRACTOR
Optional parking stand is also available. Check with
dealer for availability.
Post hole diggers when off the tractor, can be an awkward piece of equipment to handle. Be careful not to
pinch hands and fingers in the various hinge points of
the digger.
If possible, it is suggested to hang the digger from an
overhead rafter or beam. Attach the chain or rope
around the boom just ahead of the gearbox. This
allows one man to easily reconnect the digger to the
tractor when next use is required.
If storing outside, another idea is to dig a hole about
12-18 inches deep. Then shut the PTO off while the
auger is in the hole. Set parking brake, turn off engine,
and disconnect the digger from the tractor. The auger
in the hole will keep the unit upright and make it possible for one man to disconnect or reconnect to the trac-

TROUBLESHOOTING
PROBLEM
Auger will not dig
POSSIBLE CAUSES & SOLUTION
Shear bolt sheared – install new shear bolt.
Teeth dull – sharpen or replace.
Ground too dry and hard – order optional down force kit, or wait until it
rains.
Auger turning too fast and bouncing – reduce speed.
Tall grass has wrapped around auger teeth – remove grass.
Auger encountering rocks, roots, or other obstruction – lift auger from hole
and inspect.
Auger teeth improperly positioned – see Parts section in this manual for
proper tooth pattern.
Post hole digger sways side to side
No sway bars or sway blocks on tractor – add same.
Lift arms not adjusted evenly – adjust lift arms.
Post hole digger is mounted with excessive looseness in the hitch
connecting points – use proper size pins or bushings.
Bent auger flighting or bent auger
Tractor moved while auger was turning in hole – always set brakes on
tractor and make sure it is out of gear.
Operator moved tractor with auger in hole to try and straighten a hole
being dug at an angle.
Auger is encountering rocks or roots or other foreign objects – remove
object from hole or change location.
Outer edge of auger flighting is bending due to contact with rocks or roots
– use heavy-duty auger with thicker flighting.
Shear bolt has been replaced with harder bolt – replace with Grade 2 bolt
per instructions.
Auger screws itself into the ground
Operator did NOT ease 3-point hitch to ground slowly.
Faulty 3-point hitch hydraulic system on tractor.
Draft control is not in OFF position.
Tractor is too small to handle digger.
Excessive vibration
PTO driveline bearing cross is worn – replace.
PTO driveline assembly comes off
input shaft of gearbox when shear
bolt is sheared
Roll pin missing in yoke at gearbox input shaft. Install roll pin as per
instructions. THIS IS A DANGEROUS SAFETY HAZARD, CORRECT
IMMEDIATELY!
Auger digs so far, but will not dig
deeper
See solutions for above.
PTO assembly “bottoms out,” not allowing digger to lower – remove auger
from digger and lower digger. Gearbox should lower to the ground; if not,
PTO driveline assembly may need to be shortened.
PTO driveline interferes with swinging drawbar – swing drawbar out of the
way or remove.
Tractor hydraulic system may be faulty – consult tractor dealer.
Soil could have hardpan layer 6"-10" below surface – use optional down
force kit (see list of optional equipment).
16 Troubleshooting
MAN0290 (Rev. 6/16/2006)
TROUBLESHOOTING
PROBLEM
PTO driveline failure
POSSIBLE CAUSES & SOLUTION
Operator raising post hole digger too high above ground when PTO is
engaged – causes excessive PTO joint operating angle.
PTO is engaged while moving between holes. (Auger swings, which
causes excessive PTO joint operating angle.)
Improper use of a hard shear bolt – use Grade 2 bolt per instructions.
Driveline has not been properly lubricated.
Engaging tractor PTO with engine at high rpm.
Digging holes too deep so that PTO driveline contacts ground.
Operating at high rpm.
Use of auger extension can require post hole digger to be lifted high,
which can cause excessive PTO joint operating angle.
PTO driveline “galls” or “friction
welds” to input shaft of gearbox
Tractor is a “low profile model” (one that is low to the ground). Due to the
low height of the tractor, the digger must be raised higher to have the
bottom of the auger clear the ground. Generally, low profile model tractors
can only use 30" long augers (standard auger length is 42"). Use a
different tractor or purchase 30" long augers.
No lubrication on input shaft of gearbox to allow yoke of PTO driveline to
turn freely on input shaft when shear bolt is sheared. Always keep input
shaft greased.
Gearbox failure
No oil in gearbox.
Oil not changed per instructions.
Shear bolt has been replaced with a harder bolt – replace with Grade 2
per instructions.
Bent output shaft is due to operator moving tractor when auger is in hole.
Gearbox overheating
Low on lubricant – fill to proper level.
Improper type lubricant – replace with proper lubricant.
Auger bolts shear on gearbox
output shaft
Shear bolt on input shaft has been replaced with a harder bolt – replace
with Grade 2 bolt as per instructions.
Tractor stalls
Auger is encountering rocks or roots or other foreign object – remove
object or change hole location.
Tractor idle is not set correctly – tune tractor engine.
