Following day, had some shrubs to plant, so decided to use the digger before putting the tractor away:

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.

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
