I just went out and really gave mine and some of the pictures here a real good look over. It seems the kick down stand that ours has must be something to do with being a 3 point hitch mount. I'm thinking that the Cub mount does not need it since the digger sits so much closer to the axle compared to how far back it sits on a 3 point. The stand is actually the part of the mount where 2 lower 3 point arms connect to the digger,the same part that on a Cub,sits on the draw bar.

That is really compact against the rear axle. That is some serious driller meant for your machine. I like it bunches. I see it drives the augers right. Chain drive and very cool.

I don't think the distance is as much a factor as the rigidity of the mount. A three point is going to move around as you try to dig a hole. That kickstand gives you a rigid starting point each time and helps stabilize everything.

Bolted to a Cub drawbar it's not going anywhere the Cub isn't.

One thing I haven't noticed mentioned in this thread is the height of the screw that runs this thing and the need to be extra vigilant about low limbs, power lines, garages, barns, etc.

Hers a pick of my Fasthitch digger, and it has a stand that folds down.

Different mounting system on a 3 point,there are stabilizer bars that come from the gear box area to hitch pins mounted on the rear axle. Once mounted on the 3 point it is as ridged as the drawbar mount. This is one of the problems with these diggers, they are heavy and hard to mount. If your digging one or two holes it is not worth the work. The other style of 3 point diggers are way easier to install. The main difference though is the Prewitt is power down it does not rely on the weight of the digger and it screwing it's self into the ground
