That looks like a repurposed differential pumpkin...
Good Job!

Yes, I was wondering if it was off a car instead of a truck, judging by the longish pinion.

McCutter, I didn't make the gearbox/differential. I bought it already made. I was guessing it was outta a car. It only came with the lifting arm, the gearbox, and auger.
The power take-off shaft was hooked to the gearbox.

Ironman, I don't know that for sure about the gearbox. Someone before me did that part.

Whitetrash, Lol, it's been a while since I have made something or repaired something like this. I have been tied up with work and helping my Dad and Mom.
Dad does little jobs and feeds the horse and hogs. Mom does mow the grass with her tractor still. Dad will be 85 in January.

Toprecycler, the guy I bought the post hole digger from, that's all the pieces he had. So I had to make the lifting arms. It is working well, tho.

Thanks digr, It wasn't too hard to get on the tractor. It will save me from hand digging all the post holes. I got about 30 or so to do. I have the cows at my house now. Dad is doing good taking care of the horse and 2 hogs. I'm setting up the fence for them. I have never had them at my house before. It's working out well.
