    Default Hydraulic Down Force Kit on my Rotomec PHD-300

    I have not had a chance to use it yet, but I figured somebody might care to see it installed. I think it is going to be really handy.

    This is a super sweet set up. I have a Bush Hog PHD that is set up for hydraulic down force but I couldn't afford the hydraulic set up. I have used the hydraulic down force with a rented skid loader and PHD. The hydraulic down force makes the job so much quicker and easier.

    I have run my PHP for 3-4 years without it and it really is dangerous to be jumping up and down on it trying to get it to dig. I hope this addition helps solve that problem.

    It will. You won't believe how good it works. No more hassling to drill holes. Start it, put the pressure to it and in seconds you are done. I have had zero problems drilling any holes since I got mine.

    I think it will blow you away when you use it. Let us know.

    I will try to take some video.

    It has been way cold and rain is coming. I might have to put the project on hold.

    Take a look at how the BelTec TM48 uses hydraulic down pressure - awesome compared to diggers without. BELLTEC Industries :: TM48 Post Hole Digger
