1
Important Safety Information
Listed below are common practices that may or may not be applicable to the products
described in this manual.
Dig Safe - Avoid
Underground Utilities
 USA: Call 811
CAN: digsafecanada.ca
Always contact your local utility
companies (electrical, telephone,
gas, water, sewer, and others)
before digging so that they may
mark the location of any
underground services in the
area.
 Be sure to ask how close you can
work to the marks they
positioned.
2
Transport Safely
 Comply with federal, state, and
local laws.
 Use towing vehicle and trailer of
adequate size and capacity. Secure
equipment towed on a trailer with
tie downs and chains.
 Sudden braking can cause a towed
trailer to swerve and upset. Reduce
speed if towed trailer is not
equipped with brakes.
 Avoid contact with any overhead
utility lines or electrically charged
conductors.
 Always drive with load on end of
loader arms low to the ground.
 Always drive straight up and down
steep inclines with heavy end of
skid steer or tractor with loader
attachment on the “uphill” side.
Tire Safety
Practice Safe Maintenance
 Tire changing can be dangerous
and must be performed by
trained personnel using the
correct tools and equipment.
 Always maintain correct tire
pressure. Do not inflate tires
above recommended pressures
shown in the Operator’s Manual.
 When inflating tires, use a clip-on
chuck and extension hose long
enough to allow you to stand to
one side and NOT in front of or
over the tire assembly. Use a
safety cage if available.
 Securely support the attachment
when changing a wheel.
 When removing and installing
wheels, use wheel handling
equipment adequate for the
weight involved.
 Make sure wheel bolts have been
tightened to the specified torque.

 Use properly grounded electrical
outlets and tools.
 Use correct tools and equipment for
the job that are in good condition.
 Allow equipment to cool before
working on it.
 Engage park brake when stopped
on an incline.
 Maximum transport speed for an
attached equipment is 20 mph. DO
NOT EXCEED. Never travel at a
speed which does not allow
adequate control of steering and
stopping. Some rough terrains
require a slower speed.
 As a guideline, use the following
maximum speed weight ratios for
attached equipment:
20 mph when weight of attached
equipment is less than or equal
to the weight of machine towing
the equipment.
10 mph when weight of attached
equipment exceeds weight of
machine towing equipment but
not more than double the weight.
 IMPORTANT: Do not tow a load
that is more than double the weight
of the vehicle towing the load.
 Disconnect battery ground cable (-)
before servicing or adjusting
electrical systems or before welding
on equipment.
 Inspect all parts. Make certain parts
are in good condition & installed
properly.
 Replace parts on this attachment
with genuine Land Pride parts only.
Do not alter this attachment in a way
which will adversely affect its
performance.
 Do not grease or oil attachment

debris.
 Always make sure any material and
waste products from the repair and
maintenance of the attachment are
properly collected and disposed.
 Remove all tools and unused parts
before operation.
4/23/19
Important Safety Information
Listed below are common practices that may or may not be applicable to the products
described in this manual.
Prepare for Emergencies
 Be prepared if a fire starts.
 Keep a first aid kit and fire
extinguisher handy.
 Keep emergency numbers for
doctor, ambulance, hospital, and
fire department near phone.
Wear Personal Protective
Equipment (PPE)
Avoid High
Pressure Fluids Hazard
 Wear protective clothing and
equipment appropriate for the job
such as safety shoes, safety
glasses, hard hat, and ear plugs.
 Clothing should fit snug without
fringes and pull strings to avoid
entanglement with moving parts.
 Prolonged exposure to loud noise
can cause hearing impairment or
hearing loss. Wear suitable
hearing protection such as
earmuffs or earplugs.
 Operating equipment safely
requires the operator’s full
attention. Avoid wearing
headphones while operating
equipment.
 Escaping fluid under pressure can
penetrate the skin causing serious
injury.
 Relieve all residual pressure
before disconnecting hydraulic
lines or performing work on the
hydraulic system.
 Make sure all hydraulic fluid
connections are tight and all
hydraulic hoses and lines are in
good condition before applying
pressure to the system.
 Use a piece of paper or
cardboard, NOT BODY PARTS, to
check for suspected leaks.
 Wear protective gloves and safety
glasses or goggles when working
with hydraulic systems.
 DO NOT DELAY. If an accident
occurs, see a doctor familiar with
this type of injury immediately. Any
fluid injected into the skin or eyes
must be treated within
a few hours or
gangrene may
result.
Use Seat Belt and ROPS
Keep Riders Off
Machinery
911
Use Safety
Lights and Devices
 Slow moving tractors, skid steers,
and self-propelled machines can
create a hazard when driven on
public roads. They are difficult to
see, especially at night. Use the
Slow Moving Vehicle (SMV) sign
when on public roads.
 Flashing warning lights and turn
signals are recommended
whenever driving on public roads.
4/23/19
 Land Pride recommends the use
of a CAB or roll-over-protectivestructures (ROPS) and seat belt
in almost all power machines.
Combination of a CAB or ROPS
and seat belt will reduce the risk
of serious injury or death if the
power machine should be upset.
 If ROPS is in the locked-up
position, fasten seat belt snugly
and securely to help protect
against serious injury or death
from falling and machine
overturn.
 Never carry riders on the power
machine or attachment.
 Riders obstruct operator’s view
and interfere with the control of
the power machine.
 Riders can be struck by objects or
thrown from the equipment.
 Never use power machine or
attachment to lift or transport
riders.
3
Important Safety Information
These are common practices that may or may not be applicable to the products described in
this manual.
Avoid crystalline Silica
(quartz) Dust
Because crystalline silica is a basic
component of sand and granite,
many activities at construction sites
produce dust containing crystalline
silica. Trenching, sawing, and boring
of material containing crystalline
silica can produce dust containing
crystalline silica particles. This dust
can cause serious injury to the
lungs (silicosis).
There are guidelines which should
be followed if crystalline silica
(quartz) is present in the dust.
Handle
Chemicals Properly
 Protective clothing should be
worn.
 Handle all chemicals with care.
 Follow instructions on container
label.
 Agricultural chemicals can be
dangerous. Improper use can
seriously injure persons, animals,
plants, soil, and property.
 Inhaling smoke from any type of
chemical fire is a serious health
hazard.
 Store or dispose of unused
chemicals as specified by the
chemical manufacturer.
 Be aware of and follow OSHA
(or other local, State, or Federal)
guidelines for exposure to airborne
crystalline silica.
 Know the work operations where
exposure to crystalline silica may
occur.
 Participate in air monitoring or
training programs offered by the
employer.
 Be aware of and use optional
equipment controls such as water
sprays, local exhaust ventilation,
and enclosed cabs with positive
pressure air conditioning if the
machine has such equipment.
Otherwise respirators shall be worn.
 Where respirators are required, wear
a respirator approved for protection
against crystalline silica containing
dust. Do not alter respirator in any
way. Workers who use tight-fitting
respirators can not have beards/
mustaches which interfere with the
respirator seal to the face.
Tractor Shutdown & Storage
 Reduce engine speed and shut-off
all power to the attachment.
 Park on solid, level ground and
lower attachment to ground or
onto support blocks.
 Put tractor in park or set park
brake, turn off engine, and remove
switch key to prevent unauthorized
starting.
 Relieve all hydraulic pressures.
 Wait for all components to stop
before leaving operator’s seat.
 Use steps, grab-handles and
anti-slip surfaces when stepping
on and off the tractor.
 Detach and store implement in an
area where children normally do
not play. Secure implement using
blocks and supports.

NOTE: A special point of information that the
operator should be aware of before continuing.
Owner Assistance
The Online Warranty Registration should be completed
by the dealer at the time of purchase. This information is
necessary to provide you with quality customer service.
The parts on your Post Hole Digger have been specially
designed by Land Pride and should only be replaced with
genuine Land Pride parts. Contact a Land Pride dealer if
customer service or repair parts are required. Your Land
Pride dealer has trained personnel, repair parts, and
equipment needed to service the implement.
Serial Number
For quick reference and prompt service, record model
and serial number on the inside cover page and again on
the warranty page. Always provide model number and
serial number when ordering parts and in all
correspondences with your Land Pride dealer. For
location of your serial number plate, see Figure 1.
The digging performance can be improved in heavy
hardened soil conditions by applying additional down
pressure with the loader arms. The ability to reverse

Section 2: Operating Procedures
Section 2: Operating Procedures
Operator’s Responsibilities
Hazard control and accident prevention are dependent
upon the awareness, concern, prudence, and proper
training involved in the operation, transport, storage, and
maintenance of the Post Hole Digger. Therefore, it is
absolutely essential that no one operates the Post Hole
Digger unless they are age 16 or older and have read,
fully understood, and are totally familiar with the
Operator’s Manual.
Perform the following inspections before using your Post
Hole Digger.
•
Keep attachment, loader arms, and/or load away from
overhead electrical power lines. Place an orange warning
sign under overhead lines indicating type of danger above.
•
Do not allow anyone to manually push down on the post
hole digger, or put anything or anyone on the unit for the
purpose of adding weight to the unit. Objects and people
can be thrown, pinched, or entangled in the unit.
•
Keep all persons away from the post hole digger while
lowering and raising the unit. A person can be hit, pinched,
or crushed by the unit.
•
Do not drill through landscape fabric. Prior to drilling, cut
a hole in the fabric sufficiently larger than the diameter of
the auger to prevent auger entanglement with the fabric.
Fabric caught in the auger can pull a bystander into the
auger.
•
Do not allow anyone to manually guide the auger bit to
position its point on the ground while it is rotating. A person
will become entangled in the auger or hit by the auger.
•
Keep others away from the post hole digger while the auger
is rotating. A person can become entangled in the auger or
hit by the auger if it swings erratically. Anyone helping
should be kept a safe distance (a minimum of 20 feet or 6
meters) from the unit while it is rotating.
•
Do not remove spoil-pile with hand tools while auger is
operating. Doing so can result in serious injury or death.
•
Do not go near or under raised loader arms without first
securing loader arms in the raised position with an
approved lift-arm support.
•
Use the skid steer’s alternate emergency exit when exit
passage through the front is blocked.
•
Do not use hand or foot controls for handholds or steps.
Using them for handholds or steps can activate the controls.
•
•
Keep mud, snow, ice, and debris out of foot controls.

Section 2: Operating Procedures
•
Never make contact with underground utilities such as
electrical power lines, gas lines, phone lines, etc. They can
cause serious injury or death from electrocution, explosion,
or fire. If in doubt, call 811 (USA) before digging so that
they can mark the location of underground services in the
area. For contact information, see Dig Safe in the
“Important Safety Information” starting on page 1.
•
Do not travel across inclines where equipment could slip or
roll-over. Consult your power machine Operator’s Manual
for acceptable inclines they are capable of crossing.
•
Never carry riders on the implement or power machine.
Riders can obstruct the operator’s view, interfere with
control of the equipment, be pinched by moving
components, become entangled in rotating components, be
struck by objects, be thrown or fall from the equipment, etc.
•
Hydraulic fluid under high pressure can penetrate the skin
and/or eyes causing a serious injury. Wear protective gloves
and safety glasses or goggles when working with hydraulic
systems. Use a piece of cardboard or wood rather than
hands when searching for leaks. A doctor familiar with this
type of injury must treat the injury within a few hours or
gangrene may result. DO NOT DELAY.
•
Check hitch fit-up frequently. An improper fit-up can cause
the attachment to come loose from the loader hitch plate
and fall.
•
Operate only power machines equipped with a certified
Roll-Over Protective Structure (ROPS) and seat belt.
Fasten seat belt snugly and securely to help protect against
serious injury or death from machine overturn.
•
Always travel with adequate clearance between ground and
auger. Hitting an object while traveling can damage
equipment and cause operator to lose control.
•
Always travel with attachment lowered to reduce the
chances of tip over due to high center of gravity.
•
Backup alarm must be in good working order to warn
others. Use a backup camera or rear-view mirror that is in
good condition to help see undesirable situations behind the
unit. Drive at a slower speed to compensate for blind spots.
•
Do not install a bolt that is longer than what was originally
supplied with the auger. Protruding hardware is more likely
to entangle a bystander by catching on loose clothing.
•
This attachment has a 3500 psi maximum hydraulic
pressure rating. Make sure your powered machine’s
hydraulic pressure to this attachment does not exceed 3500
psi. Exceeding this rating can result in equipment damage,
serious injury, or death.
•
Do not use attachment to lift, carry, push or tow other
equipment and objects. It is not properly designed or
guarded for this use. The operator could lose control and
cause a tipping hazard.
•
Never adjust tractor pressure relief valve for a pressure
rating higher than what is recommended by the tractor
manufacture.
•
Protect freshly dug holes immediately after digging by
filling it with a post, covering the hole with a cover capable
4/23/19
of supporting a person, or place a physical boundary
around the hole to stop entry into the area.
•
Do not use post hole digger to wrap wire or any other items.
Doing so can result in bodily injury and/or damage to the
equipment.
•
Avoid exposure to dust containing crystalline silica
particles. This dust can cause serious injury to the lungs
(silicosis). Because crystalline silica is a basic component
of sand and granite, many activities at construction sites
produce dust containing crystalline silica. Trenching,
sawing, and boring of material containing crystalline silica
can produce dust containing crystalline silica.
! CAUTION
To avoid minor or moderate injury:
• Auger tip gets hot after digging. Allow time for the tip to
cool before touching or servicing the tip.
Dual-Angle Teeth
Refer to Figure 2-1 & Figure 2-2:
The Auger is shipped with teeth mounted at 40 degrees
(see Figure 2-1). If you are experiencing difficulty in
penetrating the soil, they can be turned over and
mounted at 50 degrees (see Figure 2-2) for a more
aggressive bite. Be sure to tighten all mounting hardware
to the proper torque when securing teeth to the Auger.
See “Torque Values Chart for Common Bolt Sizes” on
page 34 for torque ratings.

! WARNING
To avoid serious injury or death:
• Cross ditches and enter inclines slowly and carefully. The
auger can come in contact with the ground causing damage
to the equipment and operator to lose control.
•
•
•
Always travel straight up and straight down inclines. Make
turns only on level ground.
Slow down when traveling over rough or hilly terrain that
can cause equipment to bounce, or to hit obstacles that are
close by. Either situation can cause damage and/or the
operator to lose control.
When traveling on public roadways, travel in such a way
that faster moving vehicles may pass safely. Use accessory
lights, clean reflectors, and a slow moving vehicle sign that
is visible from the back to warn operators in other vehicles
of your presence. Always comply with all federal, state, and
local laws.
1.
Select a safe ground travel speed when transporting
from one area to another.
Operating Instructions
! WARNING
To avoid serious injury or death:
• Auger point should be on the ground before engaging
hydraulics to start drilling. An auger not resting on the
ground can swing erratically and damage equipment or hit
a bystander.
•
Care should always be taken when first starting to drill a
hole. The auger, when first entering the soil, can hit a solid
object causing damage to the auger and/or auger to swing
erratically and hit a bystander.
•
Always stop auger from rotating 1 to 2 feet before it is out
of the hole. This will keep the auger from wobbling with an
unbalanced dirt load.
•
Operate only one hydraulic function at a time. Operating
two or more functions at a time can cause damage to the
equipment and/or operator to lose control.
IMPORTANT: Do not reverse auger rotation when
raising it up. This will dump soil back into the hole.
2. Transport Post Hole Digger low to the ground to
maintain stability but at a height that does not block
your view:
IMPORTANT: If auger stalls while digging, raise
auger to free it. Continue normal digging operations
by lowering the auger slowly into the hole.
• Skid/Loader Hitch Plate: Transport with cylinders
IMPORTANT: If auger starts to screw itself into the
soil, stop auger rotation immediately and raise auger
to free it. Continue normal digging operations by
lowering the auger slowly into the hole.
on end of loader arms fully retracted, motor/
gearbox housing supported in the rest support,
and auger low to the ground at a height that does
not block your view.
• Bucket Mount: Transport with auger hanging
straight down and low to the ground at a height that
does not block your view.
3. Always travel straight up and straight down inclines.
Make turns only on level ground.
4. Enter ditches and inclines slowly to make sure the
auger does not dig into the ground. Stop and raise
auger if needed to cross a ditch or start up an incline.
5. Reduce skid steer ground speed when turning.
Leave enough room to clear obstacles such as
buildings, trees, and fences.
6. Keep away from electrical power lines. Place an
orange warning sign under overhead power lines
indicating type of danger above.
7.
When traveling on roadways, transport in such a way
that faster moving vehicles may pass you safely.
8. Reduce transport speed when traveling over rough
or hilly terrain.

SA20 Hydraulic Post Hole Diggers 317-215M
IMPORTANT: If the dirt auger bit can not penetrate
an obstruction, change auger head to the optional
rock auger head, switch auger bit to the optional rock
auger bit, or dig a new hole nearby. See “Options &
Accessory” Section in this manual for optional rock
auger heads and rock auger bits.
IMPORTANT: Some power machines have a
hydraulic relief valve to protect the equipment. This
valve will open in a stalled situation to allow oil to
bypass. Check your power machine Operator’s
Manual to see if it is equipped with a relief valve.
IMPORTANT: Operate one loader function at a time.
Operating two or more functions at a time (loader
arms, tilt arms, engine speed, and loader
positioning) can lead to damaged equipment.
IMPORTANT: Avoid moving or causing side
pressure on the auger while in the ground. This can
damage the auger and drive components.
IMPORTANT: Before digging, rotate auger
hitch (#3) horizontal as shown in Figure 2-3. This will
put distance between motor/gearbox housing (#1)
and support rest (#2). The auger, when first entering
soil, could hit a solid object causing auger to swing
around and damage equipment. Care should always
be taken when first starting to drill a hole.

lessen the strain on the equipment. Stop raising
auger within 1 to 2 feet of being out of the hole and
lower it back down to continue digging. Repeat this
procedure until hole is at its final depth.
Rotate top of tilt arms back to carry auger low to the
ground while traveling between drilling positions.
2. Position skid steer/tractor on the upside of hill when
drilling a hole. This will greatly improve balance and
down force.
3. Experiment with auger speeds before digging.
Increase skid steer/tractor engine speed to increase
auger speed and decrease engine speed to reduce
auger speed. Run at higher auger speeds when
digging in soft and/or sandy soils and at lower auger
speeds when digging in hard, rocky, or frozen soils.
Normal auger speed is 85 to 100 rpm. Never exceed
110 rpm or the equipment can be damaged.
10. Allow auger to turn several revolutions at final depth.
With auger still turning, raise auger up to within 1 to 2
feet of being out of the hole. Stop auger rotation and
continue to raise auger out of the hole.
11. Roll tilt arms into a low carry position when
transporting from one digging site to the next. Be
careful to watch out for people, obstructions, and
uneven terrain.

Section 2: Operating Procedures
General Operation
By now you should have thoroughly read your Operator’s
Manual, properly attached your Post Hole Digger to your
machine, verified auger rotation turns clockwise, and
gone over the “Operating Checklist” on page 18. Make
sure your operator protective shield or safety door is
securely in place. If you plan to dig holes immediately,
you should have contacted your local utility companies to
make sure it is safe to dig where you plan to work. If you
haven’t done all of the things just described above,
please stop and do them now. This is a must for your
safety and the safety of others.
Now that you are properly briefed, your SA20 Post Hole
Digger is properly installed, and you have the proper
digging authorization from the utility companies; it’s time
to transport to the work site. Make sure that the Post Hole
Digger is in the raised position and not in contact with the
ground. If you have an extensive distance to travel, you
may want to secure the auger with ropes, slings, or
chains to keep auger from falling off its support rest
causing damage. Select a safe speed and transport to
your digging site in such a manor that faster moving
vehicles can pass you safely. A slow moving vehicle sign
should be employed if you are using a public road or
right-of-way.
Once you have safely arrived at your digging site,
position your skid steer/tractor so that the auger is
directly over the spot where you want to dig a hole.
Extend hydraulic cylinders on end of skid steer/tractor
loader arms to rotate auger hitch horizontal as shown in
Figure 2-3 on page 21. Lower skid steer/tractor arms and
auger until auger point is on the ground where the hole is
to be dug. If needed, adjust skid steer/tractor position
forward or rearward to align auger vertically.
Periodically adjust skid steer/tractor position to keep
auger vertical while digging the hole. Use vertical
indicator as a guide. Be careful not to damage gearbox or
auger.
Apply down pressure to assist ground penetration. If
auger speed slows or stops, reduce down pressure.
Excessive down pressure can stall auger. Stop auger
rotation immediately if an obstacle is encountered that
stalls the auger while digging. Reverse auger rotation
and lift up to clear the obstacle.
Once hole is completed, disengage hydraulic drive, raise
auger to a point where the auger tip is approximately 12"
off of the ground, release park brake and move away from
the hole.
Before dismounting your skid steer/tractor; you must
always set park brake, lower your loaders arms and
attachment to the ground, turn off machine, and remove
ignition key. If you must park on a hillside you should
always chock skid steer/tractor wheels for an extra
measure of safety.
If attachment is to be operated in reverse, make sure
visibility to the rear of the power unit is appropriate for the
attachment. Backup camera or mirror is recommended.
Maintain cleanliness of lens or mirror.
With a little practice and experience you should become
very good at operating your Land Pride SA20 Series Post
Hole Digger.
See “Features and Benefits” section or “Product
Specifications” for additional information on
performance enhancing options.
Do not operate Post Hole Digger with auger more than
2" or 3" above ground. The auger could swing erratically
causing injury to operator and damage to equipment.
With engine at idle, engage hydraulic drive circuit and
raise engine rpm to operate Post Hole Digger at its rated
hydraulic flow. Auger should be turning clockwise at an
approximate speed of 85 to 100 rpm. Do not operate
auger above 110 rpm or damage to the Post Hole Digger
and skid steer/tractor could result. Use loader arm
controls to lower auger into the ground. After penetrating
the ground approximately 24", stop auger rotation and
raise auger up to remove soil and debris from the hole.
Lower auger back down and continue digging. Dig
another 24" and again raise auger up except this time
keep auger turning to lessen the strain on the equipment.
Stop raising auger within 1 to 2 feet of being out of the
hole and lower auger back down to continue digging.
Repeat this procedure until hole is at its final depth. Allow
auger to turn several more revolutions at final depth. With
auger still turning, raise auger up to within 1 to 2 feet of
being out of the hole. Stop auger rotation and continue to
raise auger out of the hole.
