    Default Auger for 4100

    Can an Auger be used with a John Deere 4100? What type? Any advice would be appreciated. <font color="black"> </font>

    Bob, a PHD is fine on the 4100. Mine has down pressure but don't recommend it ... it isn't needed. The PHD works best in soft soil. My clay is hard except when damp, so I dig this time of year. Can't say what brand is best. I've a Bush Hog brand but have heard good things about others. Hope this helps. Best of luck.

    I used a TSC stores PHD on my 4100 last year to drill about 30 holes to 40" in clay. It worked fine. In fact, it was an improvement over a larger tractor I used the year before, for reasons of manuverability.
    Note, if you get the auger stuck in clay, shut off tractor, unbolt auger, unscrew with pipe wrench. You will not have enough 3pt hitch lift to pull it out. Withdraw from hole often during the drilling, as soon as flighting appears full, to reduce chances of getting stuck.
