Stanton:

I like how you think with that Prewitt :idea: :!:

Last October at Cecil's when I bought the PHD from Bill Hudson, I said to Em and Bill -- I will never dig another hole by hand to plant trees, shrubs or vines. Gonna use my head and use my PHD :idea: Seat Time :{_}:

It sure makes short work of a labourious job doesn't it :?:

And it looks neat sitting on a cub. Seems to work as good as it looks, thanks for the pictures Stanton.

Thanks. Unfortunately, these units are no longer made. You can read more about them here:

Dave, the Prewitt post hole diggers are pretty rare. They used the same diggers on A, B, C, H,etc. with just minor changes to the mounting hardware. On a cub however it also needs the pto reducer/reverser, which is only slightly more common than hens teeth.

Dave:

As Stanton and John said, Prewitt's are very rare and haven't been made in a long time. When they do come up, they are not cheap to acquire and certainly do no look like Stanton's. There is at least 1 other Post Hole Digger out there that we have discovered.

Fast hitch post hole digger

Mark II Cub Post Hole Digger--- Pics Added

So we know for sure that Prewitt made Post Hole Diggers (aka Grosshart) and J and S foundry made them as well. This one is mine
