Help!  I am searching for a manually operated post hole auger or digger.  I have searched online and the only ones i can find are in england and they won't ship to the U.S.  I have attached a jpg file of what I'm looking for. Hopefully it will be viewable.

Whew!  I remember those man-eaters. 

When I was in high school, me and a buddy of mine hired-out and used one of those things to make post holes in the New Mexico desert.  The only way we could get it to work was for one of us to stand on top of the thing (for downward pressure) while the other one turned the handle - it was Hellish work.

You may have to purchase an auger made for a PTO digger and have someone weld a handle on it. 

Even with a PTO drive, you often-times have to rig a way to apply downward force, as most small tractors do not have a power-down three-point hitch - we used a long 2 x 4 for leverage.

I would scour ebay.  Good luck.
