IMPORTANT SAFETY MESSAGE

 

FOR OWNERS/OPERATORS OF POST HOLE DIGGERS

 

Safety Sign Caution Symbol Safety Sign

Our current production machines include, as standard equipment, guards or shields for auger adapters, drivelines, pinions, and safety signs. Older machines can be retrofitted to add these new guards or shields and, of course, safety signs. If you have an older machine which does not have standard safety equipment, please contact your dealer about bringing your machine up to the current level of safety.

Below are some of the most important safety rules to be understood and followed by anyone who works with post hole diggers:

  • Before operating a post hole digger, an operator must read and understand all the information in the owner's manual and in the safety signs attached to the product. A person who has not read or understood the owner's manual and safety signs is not qualified to operate the digger. If you do not have an owner's manual or current production safety signs, contact the manufacturer or your dealer immediately.
  • Post hole diggers are designed for one-man operation. You must always dig holes while sitting in the tractor seat. Never operate the digger with anyone near, or in contact with, any part of the implement, PTO driveline, or auger. Accidents have occurred when more than one person is in the immediate area of the operating equipment. Be sure no one else, including bystanders, is near you when you operate this product.
  • Do not operate the digger unless all shields and guards are in place.
  • Never replace the shear bolt or auger retaining bolt with one longer than those supplied and specified by the manufacturer. See your owner's manual.
  • Do not use the digger unless the auger point and cutting edges are intact and in good working order.

Following these simple, basic safety rules, as well as others identified in the owner's manual and in product safety signs, will help minimize the possibility of accidents and increase your productivity in using this product. Be careful and make sure that everyone who operates the digger knows and understands that it is a very powerful piece of machinery, and if used improperly, serious injury or death may result. The final responsibility for safety rests with the operator of this machine.

MD-Series Drivers

The PTO Model MD6 and Hydraulic Models MDH1 and BMDH Post Drivers have been discontinued. Danuser Post Drivers have been in the field since 1951. We will continue to offer conversion kits, accessories, and repair parts for as long as we can.

WARNING

For safe operation of the MDH1 and BMDH Danuser Post Drivers, do not exceed 350 RPM on the friction wheel or 8 GPM of hydraulic oil flow. These maximum parameters will result in 25 to 35 full hammer strokes per minute. Similar tractor models may have different hydraulic characteristics. Be sure your tractor has a minimum hydraulic capacity of 4 GPM, 1500 PSI, and 3 gallons in the sump. If the tractor hydraulic pump flow cannot be adjusted to provide 4 to 8 GPM, then it is recommended that flow control devices be installed. Consult your tractor dealer for his recommendations.

Note: The tractor must be equipped with a three or four-way valve and remote outlets.

The Driver PTO conversion kits are used to convert any Danuser PTO MD-Series Driver with a fireplug style gearbox to a fully guarded driveline and Driver Weight Guard. If you have a yellow or black metal PTO, then you will need to purchase one of the conversion kits below. To determine the length needed, measure from the tractor end to the driver and subtract 6-1/2". The remainder is the length you need. If your number does not match, then select the longer kit. Kits include complete guarded driveline, input guard, sleeve, roll pin, and driver weight guard kit.
