Post Hole Digging Cost
Construction ITEM DESCRIPTION
Construction unit cost for digging a post hole for a deck, fencing or other function. This is a 30" (2 1/2 foot) depth, dug with a power auger mounted to a "bobcat" style loader.
Labor and Equipment Costs
We figure a bit under 5 holes per hour of unskilled labor time, plus 8 holes per hour of power auger time.
The cost includes some gasoline, plus rental or maintenance costs for the auger attachment.
No suggestion. Enter the number of holes required.
