I wouldn't use it!

Greetings Steve S.,

After looking at their site and reading the specs, I don't think I would use it!

Like the Dodgeman states, there is no heavey duty spike. The max weight load is 480lbs. I don't think that is any bargain.

What is your soil like? If it is easy enought to pound down a spike, it should be easy enough to dig in. I think I would still rent a gas auger from a rental center. (it saves so much time and it should be cheap money.)

You are going to need about 13 holes depending if you are going to have a gate in it or not. I would dig a 30" depth and cement 2' of it.

That's my thoughts.

Good luck,

ps. Whould you be holding the spike or swinging the sledge hammer?
