Assuming that is a 1.25" diameter screw, sounds like you need something
like a cross auger handle similar to this one:
usually hickory, double ended, slide it through the hole, apply equal
force on both sides, around 24" overall (Muscle memory, holding my hands
about as far apart as when I used one 25 years ago <G>)
Designed to turn a 4" earth bit on a 1/2" pipe shaft.
