How does a post hole digger work?
A clamshell digger (also called a post hole digger ) is a good tool for this type of work. The clamshell digger is essentially two shovels hinged together at the top of the blades. It works like a combination shovel and tongs. To use the tool, push the handles together, then plunge the blades into the dirt.

How do you use a PTO driven post hole digger?
With the auger point lowered to the ground, set the engine speed to idle, then engage the PTO. Make sure the auger point is on the ground before engaging the PTO. Increase the PTO speed as required (to a maximum of 540 rpm) so the auger will penetrate the ground and dirt begins coming out of the hole.
How do you use a post hole digger in clay?
Digging in clay Lubricate the digger with water and rap it against a shovel to knock off sticky clay. If you’re digging in sticky clay soil, dip your clamshell digger in a bucket of water so the soil won’t stick. Knock off clumps on the back of the shovel. Spread a tarp to keep dirt off your grass.
How do you get a post hole auger unstuck?
Use a T-handle or pipe wrench to back out a stuck auger blade. Turn off the auger’s engine immediately after it becomes stuck in the ground. You can try rocking the machine back and forth as well as side to side to dislodge it if a good portion of the auger is above ground.
Why is my auger not digging?
If it is extremely worn — or perhaps even completely gone — the auger will not track straight as it digs. Worn teeth can also decrease digging capacity and force the auger to become stuck in the ground. Ultimately, poor screw bits or teeth might cause equipment damage or create safety concerns.
How do you store an auger?
