HD35 Series Post Hole Diggers

Available Models



The HD35 Series Post Hole Diggers are hydraulically driven and accommodate augers ranging from 6" to 24" in diameter. They are available with a bolt-on mount for mounting to the side of a bucket, on a tractor front-end loader, or with a boom for mounting to a category 1 or 2 three-point hitch. The HD35 series requires a hydraulic flow system capable of producing 10 to 25 GPM. The digging performance of the bucket mounted post hole digger can be improved in heavy hardened soil conditions by applying additional down pressure with the front-end loader. An optional hydraulic down pressure kit is available to improve the performance of the three-point mounted post hole diggers.

The ability to reverse the auger on hydraulic post hole diggers greatly reduces the strain on the auger and tractor when extracting the digger from the ground. The HD35 Series will deliver up to 1,605 ft.lbs of torque when industrial duty is preferred.

Frequently Asked Questions About This Product

Why won’t my auger go down into the ground?

There are many variables, but the most common is that the ground is hard, and requires extra weight. The optional down pressure kit will help in this condition.

Why does my HD turn slower than my PTO driven unit?

The HD unit has a different gear ratio, but it has more torque than the PD model. The RPMs of the HD is determined by GPM and pressure.

What should I do if my auger is turning the wrong direction?

Hydraulic hoses are reversed. Switch the hydraulic hoses at the outlet.

What if I want to dig deeper than my 48” auger will allow?

Land Pride offers two auger extensions for increased hole depth.

  • 7” Auger Extension
  • 14” Auger Extension
My auger has reduced turning speed, what could be causing it?

Hydraulic oil flow could be restricted. Check flow meter, remove any dirt particles in fittings and replace couplers. Replace oil filter.

How many lbs. of down force does the optional down pressure kit add to the unit?

Around 500 lbs of down force is added when the kit is installed.

Can I use a grade 8 bolt to replace the shear pin?

No. Damage to the unit will occur if a higher grade bolt is used in place of the original.

Can I replace the teeth?

Yes, all teeth supplied by Land Pride are replaceable.
