 Leinbach comparison

Anyone own Leinbach implements or specifically a PHD? I'm trying to decide between a Leinbach Medium duty for $472, the Howse Heave duty for $610 or the Rankin Medium duty for $720.

Thanks,
SJ

 Leinbach comparison

Me thinks mine is a Leinbach. I bought it with little knowledge of hole diggers or capabilities, 14 yrs ago. It is a med duty with a 12" auger. I have rebuilt the auger attaching area 2X the point 1X tuned up the cutter area 2X. The top of the gear box mounting are is tweaked, but it still works ok. Somedays I wish I bought a heavier unit but then I get finished with the project and all is well. I use it to bury small animals too, hench the tree roots.

It does not do well in heavy rocks or tree roots. Got tired of replacing light sheer bolts and used some grade 5 or 8. That did in the shaft. Almost a day of chasing pipe and cutting and welding to rebuild. When I do use it to dig holes here to build a shed, add on to deck or cover for picnic area I can plan on a lb of shear bolts. They are quicker than rebuilding auger. Plus I carry a big bar to break out BFR's (BIG "FINE" ROCKS"Wink yeah right that caused the bolt to shear.

Also a good thing to have is a BIG pipe wrench to back stupid auger out of hole if 3ph won't pick and it is stuck under big root or wad of clay. Remember new tractors have DUMB brake so now you have to shut of tractor and have pto partialy engaged so you can turn auger or disconnect pto.

The more HP you have the heavier the PHD needs to be or you need to have good skills and patience coupled with the ability to fix the things.

But it depends on your soil conditions. GOOD LUCK! Harvey
