    I recently bought a Dingo and and debating on what size(s) auger to buy for it. I am thinking of getting two and have a pretty good idea what sizes to get. I will be using the augurs for planting trees (15G to 2 2.5" Caliper) and large shrubs(5G and up).

    For those of you who have a Dingo, what size auger(s) do you use for planting trees and large shrubs?

    I just signed the papers two weeks ago on my TX420. I bought the high torque auger head with 12", 18" and 30" bits. Plus I have a one man power auger with 6" and 8" bits so I figure that I'm covered for whatever I need to plant, hopefully. LOL

    The only thing that I think that I might look into is a 2" bit for the one man auger for planting bulbs in the fall.

    we have the tx425 also.

    we turn a 36" bit (with a bobcat auger head) without any problems.

    We were going to get a 12, 24 and 30" auger bits for our SK500, but decided to forgo the 24" due to added cost. We figured that if a 24" hole would work, a 30" hole probably would too.:) So far, haven't used the auger attachment yet, in fact, we don't have the right powerhead yet (have a hydraulic auger until our high torque/low speed comes in).
