    I am not here trying to say that other products on the market are inferior or start any brand wars; I am here advertising our attachments and informing people of the value they provide.

    I understand that the Danuser is rated for a larger auger and has down force available. So it is a better unit, correct? Yes it costs more money, but by costing more money it has capabilities that the unit for less money does not have.

    I am not implying that your implements are not good. But there are better. There may not even be anything that is better for the same price, and you guys are starting to make some good implements & attachments. But that doesn't mean that there isn't anything that is better on the market. I guess that maybe instead of saying your products are the best, maybe it would sound better to say that you have the best product for the money.

    2 things that come to mind are, 1 - as already mentioned - sufficient hyd flow and 2 - can you see where you are digging?
    I don't think I could see the auger point from my tractor seat.
    If I had a skid steer though, it would be a no-brainer.
    Models for CUTs typically are rated for flows in the 6-15 GPM range, whereas a full-size skid steer auger will be rated for a higher range, say 10-20 or 20+ (depending on available flow for the SS). To my understanding, the auger torque is a function of the system relief pressure and the rpm is related to the flow rate. My DK45 is around 9.9 gpm, about right in the middle of the rated range for the Belltec NC-150 auger that I bought. The Belltec spec sheet (Rugged augers for farm & ranch applications. A planetary drive for a chain drive price. Belltec Industries, Inc.) suggests I should be turning around 64 rpm with 1180 lb-ft of torque (at 2500 system psi).

    I found out right away that you can't see exactly the tip of the auger where it hits the ground (without standing up in the cab, anyway). Some manufacturers offer an offset mount for the auger that makes this easier; I've thought of getting one of those magnetic back-up/trailer-hitching cameras to stick to a lift arm and help me see where the auger is going and what it is doing.

    Finally, as an aside, while I was researching augers, I stumbled across one (I've since forgotten which) that offered a cement mixer bucket attachment for the auger. I thought this was a pretty nifty idea; since my yard is filling up with single-use implements, it would be nice to have a hydraulic motor with multiple functions.

    EA, I did not see any warrenty information on your website. Not just PHD, other tractor attachments. How is that handled?

    Just get the post hole digger that you like, and can afford. If it is the TSC or one of the EA units you will be happy and most likley get many years of service out of it no matter which one you buy. I for one have never had a problem with anything from TSP does this mean they have the best nope it doesn't, it means that I have never had a problem with them could I have had a problem with one from another MFG sure I could have but I probably wouldn't have. My point is most of the units will be fine you have done extensive research here and no one flat out hates the TSC unit that says something because if they were junk you would have seen that word more that once!

    Some people don't want to waste productive time fooling around trying to force an underated machine into doing more than what it's designed too. That's also about the time when equipment gets broken and/or people injured.

    I have owned three standard type PTO post hole diggers. I paid a little more for each one as I bought along the way. The one I have now is a Bush Hog 2102. It is a standard PHD just like the two cheaper models that I owned previously. It was expensive. Was it worth the extra cost to me for durability and ease of use? For me it was.

    This might be a little late but many dealers were trying to get older inventory off their books by Jan 1 so they sold stuff cheap. I bought a brand new Bush Hog PHD with a 9 " auger for $500 from a Bush Hog dealer. After doing the research it looks like Bush Hog and Rhinos are exactly the same tool. I looked up both of the manuals for them and they are the same set of pictures and instructions, but for that price I took the deal. The only thing I feel bad about is that when I got to the dealer he had two PHDs and I ended up buying them both at $500 a piece. Sold the second one with the 9" auger on CL for $800 and mine ended up costing me just $200. I feel bad. I going to go dig some holes.
