I have a JD 1070 4WD with loader bucket, and would like to buy a 3pt hitch post hole digger. Does anyone have any recommendations?

They're pretty standardized and straightforard, so I'd think any Category I would be fine. Deere has its own line. Most auger bits are like Forstner drills that make the hole the nominal diameter all the way down, but it's easier digging with the conical shape that has a narrow point that gradually expands. ....

I've never seen a conical shaped bit, but then again you wouldn't want that as freezing would tend to squirt the post out of the ground ....

They're known in construction as tapered or rock augers, but that configuration is now available (without the rock teeth) for low-cost 3-pt hitch use. Hadn't thought about freezing effects.

You don't think of this as dangerous, but a friend was digging a posthole for a neighbor who was watching by the hole site. Apparently a previous owner had laid groundcloth -- which wrapped on the bit and yanked the neighbor into the auger. My friend managed to shut down as foot met flute. ....

Stones here are very few but roots are not. Just for that reason don't think would recommend standing near a hole with auger running and there is loose clothing and buried wires and pipes and old trash pits. ....
