I think you have to buy them as whole holes. Why would you want to buy .674854 of a hole anyway??

Dave, I'd be interested but I always buy new post holes when I decide to get some.  Used just doesn't last as well.

All depends.  If they originated from way up north, then the cold preserves them, slowing the rot by decades!

I"m not real sure how you install them but I guess you just take it out of the box, drop it on the ground and then set the post?

They make a special post hole digger. Dig down 4 1/2', drop the hole in and shovel the dirt around it.

I specialize in frozen post hole transport, call for a quote. Gotta load and haul fast so they don't melt. When they melt you have to deal with the EPA.

Is there any left or are they sold out now. I don't need them right away , but I guess I could store them.

Can the holes be compressed to fit in a smaller box for shipping, then expanded back to original size?

Taxes on them to an in state buyer could be a deal killer .

If M.S.H.A. becomes involved you're going to regret the whole thing . OHSA and EPA pale in comparison.
