deep on the far end and lay the screw anchors,
securing them with two 4 ft lengths of rebar vertically driven against the 
screw.  Then I back filled the slit with well tamped

Has anyone used a post hole auger on a tractor to drive screw anchors??
I think they are a bit too fast, but might handle the job if properly
I'd rig a telescoping shaft, like on the pto driveshaft, to go between the
auger drive coupling and the anchor eye.
