    What's the best way to store a post hole auger if you don't have an equipment shed? I have to think that just leaving it sprawled out on the ground can't be good for it. Anybody have pix of a simple stand they made?

    you just make a steel Aframe stand like a swing set frame.an make it tall enough to get the auger off the ground.

    4x4s & some H brackets. About $20 and you would be all set.

    If you're gonna be leaving it outside, just drill a hole and unhitch n go. Doesn't cost a thing.

    Not sure I would want the cutting tips sitting at the bottom of a muddy hole, especially if you ever wanted to change them.

    Brian;

    I assume that the horizontal member is put in place before lowering the post hole digger?

    Looks like a great idea.

    The horizontal piece is removable and just sits in the saddles. This setup works VERY good and usually only takes about 5 minutes to get all hooked up with ZERO fighting of the implement.

    Thanks Brian, need to build this to make installation easier. Is the hydraulic cylinder for down force on auger?

    Yes, the down pressure kit has saved me days in drilling time.

    I hang mine from a piece of chain in my equipment shed, just run the chain around the frame about a foot from the gearbox and run a small bolt through it. It hangs off of the ground and I don't have to fight it. I plan on putting up a short piece of sliding door track so I can slide it over to the side out of the way when in storage and slide it back and forth to line up with tractor,
