If you've only got 8 holes to dig, you could dig them by hand quicker than you could round up the stuff to power dig them.

TRUE, BUT THAT IS THE LAST OPTION. I WOULD HOWEVER USE THE DRILL LATER FOR MORE POST SETTING. THANKS

I dug 70-6" holes with 1 3 years ago. worked good, would think the 12 auger would be real heavy.

I see them on Craigslist pretty often, both hydraulic (which I bought) and 3 pt.

Rent one or get someone with a skid steer to drill your holes. You probably need to go down 6 ft. or more. 1.6 HP isn't very much.

LOOKED AT MY DRILL AND FOUND IT IS A 3.0 HP UNIT. MAYBE IT MIGHT HANDLE A 12 INCH BIT ?
