Post Hole Digger Toronto?


Hey there! First post. Hmm, and my first post is about a post.

Anyhow, I'm looking for a post hole digger in Toronto. Anyone know of a good digger for downtown Toronto? I'm not looking for cheap, btw. It's just five holes, (I don't do holes, ), so obviously I'll be paying the minumum charge ($200 or so).

Thanks,
Enjoy reading this forum. Lots of good people here!

Chris

We have dozens of companies that do nothing but dig holes. I have a guy we use all the tiem. some of my carpenters are getting older and don't want to dig holes. It also saves me time. I can have the holes dug while the carpenters are on another job.
Chris, give us a call and I'll give you my guy's #

Bob, last year i watched two BIG guys spin around like human helicopters when their auger hit a strong root. Yikes! That was the end of the auger for me. And once I lug it to the job from the rental store, set it up, and lug it back to the rental store, I'm probably using up more time than it's worth. If I had a bunch of holes to dig, I would consider renting a Kubota with an auger for a day.

And Stone, I'll do that, thanks!

Thanks Stone,

I'll called your office and they gave me his number. He came out last week. 6 posts, dug, poured and set, $280. Money well spent.

Re: Post Hole Digger Toronto?


Hey, Toronto Fence. Just so you know, I have the name Toronto Fence & Deck registered and I first started using that name in 1994. I would appreciate it if you would stop, because, although I don't use it any more, people are still confusing you and me.
I recently had someone call up for a repair on a fence built last year and they insisted I did it ( I didn't). They looked up the name in a 2006 phone book, (where I was still listed as Toronto Fence & Deck )because they had lost their contract.
No malice intended, but I was there first.
By the way. Welcome to the forum. I have learned a lot from it.

Re: Post Hole Digger Toronto?


I would dig you holes if you were closer, But From Alabama To The Great White North might increase the fee




P.S. I know you have had it done already

wish I could get $50 a hole.

Hey Chris,

I am interested in the guy who dug and set your six posts for $280. Can you get back to me with a phone number? I am seeing minimum charges of $350 and more in Toronto at the moment and I don't want to pay so much for only six posts.

Thanks for any help in this matter.

Yes, I got a quote for $300 minimum and I'm going with it. Not bad at all. I wouldn't do it myself for that money...not after renting the equipment and slaving away for a full day in this Toronto heat.
