 Post Hole digger suggestions for a JD4100

I'm looking for a PHD for a JD 4100 3 pt. If I remember correctly some models had a clearance issue behind the seat bracket...looking for the mfg that can be used without a problem...

Geez! Too bad you are on the right coast (as opposed to the Left coast), I just put mine out on consignment.

I can tell you the things to watch for...... if you can find one in stock somewhere.

You have answered many of my questions in the past...
If you ever want to sell the PHD, let me know...I remember you mentioned the clearance with the back seat bracket. So if there any brands that are known to work well, I'll stick with that...will a 12" auger be to big?

Thanks again,

Ducati

I have a Gearmore unit (Danhauser, I think) that I modified to fit the tractor after I bought it and found the problem.

It hasn't seen much use as I have two types of soil: soft flowing sand and some sort of naturally occurring concrete. Since the backhoe arrived it just collects dust.

Anyway it is over in California (at a dealer who actually returns phone calls)on consignment.

The important thing to do, if you find a unit you like, is to make sure the boom section does not hit the angled bracket between your seat and your top link when the three point arms are full lifted.

I wish I could advise you on the auger size.... All I know is 9 inches is too big for natural concrete and too small for beach sand.

Ducati, have you tried your Deere dealer? I recall seeing an offering for the 3pt hitch that is pto driven and relatively inexpensive. Deere may be able to answer all of the fit issue questions.
