    Default Boost power with PTO pump ??

    I'm not very knowledgeable about hydraulics. I have a Montana 5740C. The website says the hydraulic pump flow is 8.72 gpm. I bought a bucket mounted hydraulic post hole digger. Its power is pretty weak and the auger turns pretty slow. Is it possible to put a PTO hydraulic pump on the back and plug the post hole digger into that? Would that improve its performance?

    Yes sir, you can use one of these, but they ain't cheap.

    Add to that the prices of a reservoir, hoses, QD's and a valve. It gets pricey quickly.

    There are hydraulic PHD's made for low-flow applications...what make/model do you have?
