 Which post hole digger

I have about 8000' of horse fence to put up in the next 2 years so I thought I would get my own digger. I have seen the Shavers, Danusers, Landprides and Bushhogs on the internet. Does anyone have any recommendations? The posts will be 5" treated with larger in the corners. Our soil in NWArkansas is clayish with small rocks. I have a NH TC29.Thanks in advance.

 Which post hole digger

Any economy post hole digger should work. I've had a cheap one for 30 years with no problems.

 Which post hole digger

I thought so, too. I bought a $450 PHD with a 9 inch auger. It's an EM5000 from Green Manufacturing, Inc. I've done 13 holes so far. The digger is fine, the soil sucks.

I've had either boulders in the hole or such loose gravel that I had to soak the hle to pull out the material.

 Which post hole digger

Concerning the PTO driven posthole diggers, the Danuser F8 is the best but its also expensive. For 1.5 miles of fence an economical pto digger should work fine for clay and small rock type soil like yours. Typically, these are in the $350-450 range. In my area, these are often at autions and sell for around $200-250 including auger. Numerous manufactures and are similar in construction. If you have lots of rocks or trees, then consider the hydraulically driven diggers which will stop when meeting an unmoveable force instead of breaking the shear pin on PTO driven models. Hydraulic ones can also be reversed when stuck. For putting in posts around 5" in diameter, I would recommend a 9" auger. A 9" auger in my opinion is the most used of any auger I own. (I also have 6",16" and 24" augers) A 9" hole allows good tamping of the soil around the post and yet it is not such a large hole that requires a lot of filling. Once the auger gets over 12" in diameter, then your will probably want a more heavy duty digger. I have both a PTO diven auger and recently purchased a used bobcat model 15 hydraulic auger that mounts on my loader. I have a feeling the PTO digger will probably see little use from now on. I often had to add weights on the PTO auger to get good digging in clay soil. With the loader mounted digger there is no stopping. The bobcat digger can use 36" bits.
