Sizing between Cat 0 – 3 is not universal between different tractor manufacturers. For most tractors, the recommended sizing is:
Post Hole Digger Model 90 - Cat 0 — Outside to Outside Width on the A-Frame 20”
Post Hole Digger Model 100 - Cat 1 & 2 — Outside to Outside Width on the A-Frame 25.5”
Post Hole Digger Model 110 - Cat 2 & 3 — Outside to Outside Width on the A-Frame 32”
All post hole diggers diggers come with the CAT 1 pins as whole assemblies. If you need different pins (e.g. cat 0, 2 or 3 pins), you will need to change those out, yourself. The sizing between the pins on the tractor should be matched as closely as possible to the Outside to Outside width of the A-Frame to ensure a proper fit. You can use the “recommended Cat sizing” above as a general/rough guide; however, this may not apply to every tractor.
Please check the Owners Manual for full details.
