John Deere PHD1 Series

Post Hole Diggers

  • Parking Stand
  • Dependable & Rugged Gearbox (6-year Warranty)
  • Auger Alignment Handle
  • Anti-Burying Auger Plate


Hook-Up Parking Stand

Hook-up parking stands for storage and stability. The removable hook-up parking stand makes mounting and detaching the Post Hole Digger to your tractor a safer, easier, one-person job. While in-between jobs, the parking stand allows the Post Hole Digger to be stored in the upright position.

Auger Positioning Handle

The auger positioning handle allows the operator to easily align the auger into the desired position from the operator’s seat prior to digging. The auger positioning handle is in base equipment on all PHD1 Series Post-Hole Diggers. *The auger positioning handle will need to be removed for compatibility with CAB Compact & Utility Tractors.

Anti-Burying Plate

The anti-burying plate holds the teeth at a steeper angle than the pitch of the flighting, causing the teeth to chew through the soil at a more aggressive rate than the flighting can move it. The anti-burying plate also provides a "resistance" to the aggressive digging forces of the teeth, causing the soil to pulverize instead of the auger screwing itself into the ground.

PTO Driveline Holder

The PTO Driveline holder keeps the PTO driveline off the ground, reducing exposure to dirt, mud, and debris thus decreasing maintenance and helping to promote extended product life.

Spiral and Screw Point Augers

Both the Screw Point and Spiral Point have been designed to allow for better ground penetration in hard ground conditions without the use of a downforce pressure kit.


Screw Point on PHD125

  • Wider spiral pattern drills effectively and is more conducive to removal by smaller tractors. Screw point augers comes standard on all 36” augers (PHD125)

Spiral Point on PHD235 and PHD395

  • Designed to pull the auger into the ground more aggressively than the screw point or fishtail point. Spiral Point Augers come standard on all 48” augers (PHD235 and PHD395).
6-Year Gearbox Warranty

Dependable, rugged gearbox for long life. The PHD1 Series Post Hole Digger comes with an extended 6-year warranty.
