It could be gear bound and not allowing it to disengage, i experienced that a few times in my farming days, we dug a lot of postholes with a PTO driven digger. What usually happened is i ended up getting caught on rocks and stalled out because i had the engine speed to low. What i generally had to do to fix it was remove the PTO shaft from the digger, disconnect from the tractors output shaft, then get it started and everything moving, then disengage the PTO and reconnect the post hole digger, then give her hell and get the engine speed up before re-engaging the PTO, that would generally shock it loose. If not then i would have to disconnect the PTO shaft again and spin it backwards by hand to rotate the digger in the opposite direction to remove the hangup.
If the instructions do not give you an answer to your question and you can't find any information from the manufacture I would proceed as follows. The oil coming out of the breather is due to the splashing of the oil and the heating of the parts as they work building up pressure. I would tend to believe that as long as there is some coming out there is enough oil to take care of the gearbox.
If there is a separate plug to remove to add oil to the gearbox I would use that as my fill level. I hope this helps.
Check at the top where the shaft from the motor goes into the auger shaft... there is a shear bolt...the pieces may still be there like normal but the bolt is broken inside...pull out one of the outside pieces and then find the rest and punch the broken pieces out... then replace the bolt with the proper hardness bolt to protect the equipment...
Most 2 Cycle Engines use a 32:1 or 40:1 Fuel Mix Ratio.
The Newer 2 Cycle Engines use a 40:1 or 50:1 Fuel Ratio.
For Better Performance and to be sure you have Plenty of Oil to the Engines Internal Components, I Suggest (and I Use) a 32:1 Ratio in All my Equipment except for Post Hole Diggers.
Post Hole Diggers Use a 25:1 Fuel Ratio.
Hope this Helps.
Hammer rebar into the ground to create pathways for water. Grab a hose and soak the ground to soften it before using the post hole digger. Wait until the water has had a chance to soak in. Raise the post hole digger and drop it, jaws open, into the ground. The jaws will cut into the ground and soften it even more for removal. Continue to use the weight of the post hole digger for the hard work, circling around the edge of the hole. Drop the digger down with force once you've loosened up a circle of soil. Open the handles to grab a bite of earth in the jaws and lift it out. Continue with Steps until you've removed all the loose soil, making a hole 1 foot in diameter.
Search local home and garden stores to find a post hole digger. Many department stores sell post hole diggers too.

Know that it takes a lot of strength to dig holes with a post hole digger, but there are a diggers available with special features that allow someone not quite as strong to use the digger too. Pick up and examine the different post hole diggers while you're shopping. Compare the feel and weight of the tools. Pretend to dig holes and see how it handles. Compare the features and designs of different post hole diggers. Most are manufactured from fiberglass or steel, but some have a different shaped handles for specific digging jobs. Determine if you'd rather have a fiberglass handle or a wooden one. Fiberglass is lighter and more resistent to sun damage than wooden handles. Select a post hole digger based on your preferences, the job required and who'll be using the tool. Plan to spend more on a post hole digger that's made from steel or for heavy duty use. The range for a post hole digger is generally under $50.
