I bought a County Line post hole digger from Tractor Supply about four or five years ago. It was around $550, and I spent about $150 for a nine inch auger. My YM1500, which has less PTO power than your tractor, has absolutely no problem powering the thing. I've used it to dig through all types of soil in western PA, including hard packed clay and areas that were full of sandstone.

I'm not sure that your tractor would have enough range of motion on your three point hitch for this post hole digger, but that opinion is based on nothing other than looking at a picture of what you have on tractordata.com, and I could be completely wrong about that.

I've used my post hole digger for hundreds of fence posts and for things like starting holes for planting trees in tough, rocky soil. The only real problems I've had with it are its tendency to screw into the ground if you're not fast enough with lifting it back out, and the fact that the front of my tractor was too light before I had a loader on. Other than replacing shear bolts once or twice I've had no mechanical issues at all. Hooking it up by yourself is a bear, but I think that's true for most three point mounted augers.
