A post-hole digger for the Power Curber 5700 Series (5700-B, 5700-Super-B, or 5700-C) digs pier holes up to 34 inches deep (86cm) for slip-forming wire rope fence foundations. The attachment mounts on the left rear of the machine and is powered with the machine™s auger conveyor circuit, giving both direction and speed control. The driveway knife circuit controls the plunge function up and down. The auger for the post-hole digger operates inside a cylinder. It moves the dirt upward onto a hinged chute, catching the material before it hits the ground. The chute allows the material to be dumped out of the way of the slip-form application and eliminates the need for a crew member to move the dirt manually. The excavated material does not fall back into the hole; thus, the pier hole is left clean for the slip-form application. A pier hole can be dug in a matter of seconds.
