 Post Hole Digger Impliment Stand

I have a Land Pride PD25 post hole digger that is akin to wrestling an alligator to hook up to my tractor and work on. It sure would make things ALOT easier and safer if it were mounted on a frame or equipment support stand when not used so I can just back up to it with my tractor and hook up. Have any of you tackled this problem and if so what did you make or use to mount it? Some pictures would be great! Thanks.

 Post Hole Digger Impliment Stand

I think there may be some pictures somewhere in the archives. I forget who it was that constructed something similar to an engine hoist for a PHA. It also was on wheels so it could be moved around the shed. Some people simply chain them to a heavy tree limb.

It's by far the most awkward of my implements to manage and I've got to come up with better storage for mine. There's also a real risk of mashing a hand or something in the folding arms when wrestling with them.

I use an engine (cherry picker) hoist to move that kind of thing around now. I recall the last time I attached mine, it was stored on my trailer prior to the barn being built. I lifted it out with the loader and wrestled with it for quite some time. It now sits on blocks in the corner of my barn, but I have an old four wheeled outboard engine stand I have been eyeballing for possible conversion.

The PHD is the most difficult to manage, and few easy solutions. When stored, mine is chained to a corner of the barn, and hanging from a stand I built. When hooking it up, I use a hand winch to raise or lower it. Still a pain, but now its done safely and no problems. Many owners eventually build customized racks, stand, or frames to hold them. The one that's best is the one that works for you. I saw one for sale on Ebay once, and I'm sure there are more on the net.

I've got a home made stand, or I can get you a "store bought" one. I can send you some pictures if you want, or I can sell you what I've got. I'm located in north Texas.

pekabu, thanks for the link! That stand is a great idea. Looks pretty simple to make as well. I have not seen this pic before. The Land Pride site did not show it with the PD25. I'll give them a call. I emailed them last week but have not gotten back a reply yet.

The Land Pride stand is a DISPLAY stand not a STORAGE stand, there's a world of difference.

For a PHD parking/storage stand you want something that forms a cradle for the gearbox as the first point of contact. A design which allows you to lower the gearbox & auger into a combined cradle taking all the weight except the boom & driveshaft is the easiest for putting on & taking off the PHD.

In the design shown on the Land Pride site you would have to balance the PHD vertically on the tip of the auger while you disconnected it from the 3pth and hooked it to the stand. Doesn't sound very fun or easy to me.

Best of luck.

I just got an email reply from what I guess is Land Pride. "we do offer a storage stand for the post hole diggers. This can be purchased from your local dealer and have it delivered.
The part number is 317-142a" I will call my parts contact at the John Deere dealer and see what the story is. Thanks for the heads up Murph.
