Ive looked at the hydraulic augers on tractor with quick attach but
1 i have over 300 trees to plant for contracts, by hand is just too slow for our production rate
2 I will likely get 2 contracts with another 200 trees
dont care for japanese machines, i want a cat 302.5 mini. Ive had no luck buying used equipment so Ive got to $$$ for new.
that machine was bought new my dad in 2006 for his landscaping business, he used to crank out several retaining walls, patios, and landscape jobs a month, and that machine has paid for itself in about 2 years, it has also made me some really good money, its only 1400hrs and it still has no issues, and i doubt it ever will, it has a yanmar diesel, which are decent motors...
