With reliability, performance and endurance in mind, Paddock Machinery has designed an implement to stand the test of time. Suitable for use on tractors, dozers and Cat I vehicles with PTO output, this powered auger will make many farm and construction duties light work. With the optional hydraulic ram assist the digger will handle drier and more impacted soils than standard post hole diggers.

Post Hole Digger Applications & Tractor Suitability

These post hole diggers can be used with a variety of tractors from Kubota to John Deer, Case, Iseki, Massey Ferguson and New Holland to name a few. With a 50HP gearbox this implement is suited to Cat I, three point linkage tractors up to 40HP. Users can configure the implement to suit larger hp tractors as necessary. An ideal implement for fencing, digging post holes, tree planting, decking and construction. Combine with our range of post hole augers and you'll have the capability to dig deep holes with a neat finish. The implement is available with or without the hydraulic ram, however, to fully utilise this feature, the tractor will require double acting hydraulic remotes to apply down force and retraction.

For more information on matching implements to tractors please see our feature article on PTO Machinery.

Post Hole Digger Construction

PTO tractor implements need to be built tough but with precise engineering. Paddock has over engineered all areas prone to failure. Reinforced booms and arms have been utilised, while the 3PL pins and gearbox linkage are hardened steel. Covers protect the gearbox from dust as well as safety covers on the PTO joints and shaft. As a fail safe, shear pin protection is in built on the PTO shaft to protect the implement and gearbox from damage so you have peace of mind when tackling heavy and hard soils. A PTO shaft clutch is also included standard. The unit includes hydraulic hoses.
