Okay, I have read several older threads, including Bluey’s excellent one from 2011. I’ve done a bunch of research, but still feel unsure about this.
I’m the proud owner of a Kubota B2650 HSD. It has auxiliary hydraulics.
I live in Central Maryland, so think red clay, hardpan/shale and rocks. There’s a town near me called Rocky Ridge. It’s called that for a reason.
I want to put in 6" fence posts on a 12 acre farm. Some of my fencing is 20 years old and ready for replacement. In other areas, I’d like to replace metal pound-n posts and electric tape with wooden posts and no climb. So, while I’m not planning to be running fence all the time, it’s hard enough without cursing over the wrong equipment.
Please, please, tell me specifically what I need, given my available horsepower. What diameter auger? What should I look for and what should I steer clear of? Do I need to buy new or can I buy used without buying someone else’s problem? How much should I expect to spend?
Help a girl out?
