I have the opportunity to buy a three point post hole digger and a VERY good price.  My concern is, I have a Massey GC1705 SCUT and I'm worried that it wont lift high enough to get it out of the ground.  I could really use this because I have a fence to put up and not a lot of time to invest in digging all the holes.  Have any SCUT owners out there used one of these on their tractor?  Will it work?

Well, I don't know to be honest.  On the tractor, yes but I know nothing about the implement yet.  The guy didn't post a phone number so I'm relying on email of which he is not very quick at answering.  To be honest, if it works right, for the price I'm surprised it's still available.  I guess it isn't something you use everyday.

Jeff,
I've seen guys shorten the auger
Don't know why, but the neighbors hole digger was almost a foot shorter than when new. Maybe he was "fixing" a bent auger or something.

I'am  sure on some makes there's a adjustment on the main beam. You can move the a-frame either ahead or backwards.on the main frame which makes the auger lift higher or lower. Sort of like changing the fulcrum point.


  • MH81, Alc and David Brown have said thanks
