I have one of those. MUCH better than digging by hand, especially in the hard packed red clay around here.
Geez!I have one of those. MUCH better than digging by hand, especially in the hard packed red clay around here.
I worked with a guy who got his hoodie sleeve hung on bolt or pin that holds the auger in place on the gearbox. (The guard was missing.) He'd left the auger turning in the hole and got off the tractor to rake the dirt away from the hole so it wouldn't fall back in when he lifted the auger out. It quickly wrapped his arm up and eventually twisted his arm off just below his shoulder. Since it twisted off it also sealed the blood vessels which kept him from bleeding out. He then had to drive a Dodge diesel truck with the manual transmission a couple of miles to get home. Without a right arm. This was before the days of cell phones, and he used his house phone to call 911. They sent a medevac chopper to get him.
