DRankin has about the simplest stand available. Not sure if he's got a picture but it's a two wheel hand truck. Roll it up to the phd while it's on the tractor, set the auger on the base of the hand truck, use some heavy straps to strap it to the cart, disconnect it from the tractor and roll it to your storage area.

I'm going to try the Hand truck. I've used mine to lay the unit across to wheel it back in a corner. Still clumsy.

At one time if I wanted to make a disconnect I would simply lean a couple of sticks propped under the auger universal (like a tripod) Then take it off the hitch and PTO.

Google "post hole digger + stand." One sells for $185 + shipping.

Here's a design that is probably larger than your need but maybe you can scale it down.

These are all good suggestions...I guess I'm thinking of something cheap, like a big sawhorse that I can back up to, rest the gearbox on, un-hook, and be done??

The cheapest solution someone had was that they had a gravel floor in their pole barn that they just pulled the tractor in and drilled a hole and just dropped it in there.

Probably a pain to attach afterwards.

We have two ways of parking a PTO PHD.

The first, and simplest, is an old chain over a beam in the equipment shed, back up, raise the PHD, hook the chain into a loop under the arch of the the frame, lower the PHD till the chain takes the weight and unhitch.

The second is just a tripod made out of 2"x4" with a plywood base which has casters under it. Two of the three boards are longer and form a notch, the hook of the PHD frame rests in that notch and a loop of chain secures it there, and the 3pth portion rests on a cross bar bolted to the third board.

Best of luck.

Big Saw Horse......Might be an Idea... Turn one on end and brace it up a bit.... Shazam! Think I'll look into that. Just happen to have a couple sawhorses ready to be retired..... HMMMMM! I'll let you know.

Banger, let me know how that works...I like Murf's idea...I just poured 40 yards of concrete in the bottom of the barn, and there is a beam that needs to be replaced...so now I'm thinking of incorporating something in that beam to "hang" it rather than support it from the floor.
