 What about cheaper second hand implements?

Looked at a new Woods posthole digger this weekend. Whew... $900-$1100 is a little more than I expected. (don't remember the Model#) I would "like" one for the occasional tree planting expedition or mail box planting. Are used ones worth looked at? Does someone make a good, reliable "medium" duty, in the -$500 range?...or am I dreaming? I can't justify that kind of money for the amount of work I would have for it. I guess renting is always an option.

Try Northern Tool and Equipment (www.northern-online.com). They have what appears to be a medium duty one in catalog #133 for $350.

 What about cheaper second hand implements?

Most second hand auger heads that I have seen have been pretty beat up. Most farm oriented auction yards that I have visited in Oregon and Washington sell a new, lower end (I guess you could characterize it as "medium duty") post hole digger. Some will sell them outright while others just auction them off. In either case, the price seems to run around $400 with a 9" or 12" auger. The Woodburn, OR, auction yard probably sells 10 to 20 of them at each auction. All of the new ones that I have seen have been made by an Italian outfit. I have not used mine yet, but I have been told that they tend to leak lubricant in use. The problem for me in ordering from a place like Northern Tools is that the freight out here to the West coast on something like a post hole digger makes up a significant portion of the final price.These auction yards also sell a variety of other farm implements at prices lower than name brands. Some of the stuff looks identical to brand names selling for considerably more, on other stuff, however, the lower cost is fairly evident.

I've tried used implements and new implements. They both work equally well and the used ones cost far less and the soil doesn't care what dug the hole. Buy the cheapest (safe) implement you can and you will probably get the greatest return on your investment. IE. if you bought a post hole digger new for $900 and sold it 4 years later for $400 you lost $500. If you buy a used posthole digger for $300 and sold it 4 years later for $300 you lost nothing and did the work you wanted to do. As long as they are still functional, used implements are the way to go in my book.

Good quality three point implements don't seem to ever wear out. A used one is just as useful as a new one - though it may leak oil! For some reason the used attachments don't hold their value as well as the tractors themselves and are often real good buys. Roger
