    Default Re: Auger Question

    I think the auger question has been fully answered but I have dug quite a few holes with my 2425 in widely varying types of soil. Up until a couple days ago, they were all with my 24" auger. In rock-hard clay and assorted rocks (like the first 10 holes), it was pretty slow going. It doesn't help that most of the holes I dig are with the 24" extension added that my dad welded up for me. The last two holes I dug a couple days ago were a complete dream...I was down 48" in about 90 seconds. Now you didn't hear it from me....but this fellow I know real well...actually used his 9" auger to drill through a 3.5" asphalt pad (because he didn't want to run to town to rent a concrete saw.) It was about 90 degrees that day and he took it very slow but it saved him about $75 and at least 2 hours of run-around time. The answer is yes...the 9 inch once started (or through the asphalt in my "buddy's" case) drills an incredibly fast hole and I almost went a foot deeper than intended.

    Thanks to all for informing me about my PDH and getting the augers unstuck (which has never happened yet.)

    bmac, The hose connections on the auger head are not quick disconnects. I guess Hans's idea of using adapters to switch the male and female connectors at the tractor, would be the most economical and simple fix. Have a good one. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    DelW, I think you are right. Its time to put this puppy to bed. Thanks to all who contributed.

    I will add one more thing, though. After your last comment, I would suggest you do not dig any holes for awhile. You've set yourself up for your first stick.
