 PHD use

Any special tricks to using a 3-point PHD?
Never used one before, but will in the near future.
Thanks

The old one I've used, on the soil around me, generally required two people, one on the tractor controlling the lift and pto, and the other controlling (pushing down) on the PHD. If you have the type of hardpack I have, have some extra shear pins handy!

Just mounted my new PHD onto the tractor Sunday afternoon. After a few minutes of commenting how great it looked hanging off the back of the tractor, it was time to do family stuff. I have 125 holes to poke, Ill be watching this thread closely. Hopefully we can both learn something.

Like was said have plenty of shear pins on hand. Don't try to drill the hole in one fell swoop, as you're drilling pull the auger up a bit in the hole to allow it to clear the soil out of the auger, other wise if you hit a rock, root, or something that cuts a shear pin it's not quite as much of a pain go get the auger loose. Rocks are a piece of cake compared to tree roots. go slow and easy, a runing auger up out of the hole can be a nasty thing to get someone caught in. Best of luck and above all be carefull. Frank.

I know people do what Blueman said but serious injuries happen too. Augers are about the most dangerous of implements and I don't want anybody near one that's in operation. Easy for me to say I guess since I have easy dig sand for the most part, but I'd use sandbags if I needed down-pressure. Lots of people get their hands caught between frame members when taking augers on or off the tractor so be careful When dismounted they are really awkward things.

In addition the what's been said I'll add a bit. Be sure the shear bolts are the right grade. An auger can really bang a hitch around. I start at slow rpm's and the increase to pto rpm when the hole is going well. Some holes want to take off at an angle. I dig in my loader bucket and move the tractor a bit carefully with the bucket curl if needed to keep the hole going vertically. I take a 5' tempered pry bar and clamshell digger with me so I can break up and remove the inevitable pieces of rock that broke a pin.

I didn't take quite enough care marking my fence line and post locations. I compounded the problem by not starting the auger point exactly where I marked. I had to shave the sides of a fair number of holes to get a straight fence. Straight fences are next to godliness

Hydraulic augers sure are nice. I'd like one but I have to keep mind that an auger for me and many others is fairly project oriented--build a fence put up a pole building and maybe a retaining wall. I ran out of projects pretty quick and the auger has sat around for years. My very basic auger has done the job and the cost was low enough that I don't feel bad about it sitting around. Well, I do feel some building coming on so I'll likely get to know it again.

I've never stuck the bit and needed reversing but that may just be the soil here and there's a first time for everything. I do pull it up frequently to clear dirt out of the hole and keep the hole as vertical as I can, which helps to prevent stuck bits.
