Morning,
This old unit has paid for itself 2 fold over the last year. I was thinking of making a light 36" bucket for loading loose dirt. Also thinking about fitting a hydraulic post hole digger with reverse ability. This unit is a Sherman Power Digger 54B100. (Wain-Roy)

What have you done with your add on diggers and full grown backhoes?

Big buckets usually with flat front edges are common for loose material.

A smooth edge bucket is very handy
indeed, I use mine a lot for feeding
my screener and backfilling, also I
wouldn't want to be without my thumb.
Another very useful attachment I made
is my hydraulic drive brush cutter.
Also for a different excavator I had I
made forks, very handy, and of course
a hydraulic auger as you mention

I have the book on Wain-Roy And The Invention Of The Backhoe. Not in front of me but it mentions at least three different sized buckets were available. That mechanical thumb would be a handy option.

MARKCT, did you install a new lever for your auger? Can't tell if you have an old trackhoe or a small dozer.
