Post Hole Drilling Service (NOW OFFERING DRILL/POUR/SET)

Carmichael Post Holes is a complete post hole drilling service .  This includes not only drilling holes, but pouring and setting your fence posts and or deck footings.  This is ideal for the DIY’er or contractor who will be building their own fence, deck, shed etc.  Before our arrival, please mark out all hole or footing locations. We can arrange for all locates* where the work is being completed.  (*This service is usually completed within 5 days).   Have you ever operated a manual gas auger?  It’s not fun.  In fact, it can also be dangerous.  At Carmichael Post Holes, we can take care of all your post hole drilling needs, quickly and efficiently.  With our small but powerful Boxer 322D Mini-Skid Steer we can also fit through most gates larger than 36″ wide and drill holes 9″ or 12″ wide and up to 48″ deep.  This will ensure the best possible scenario during the cold winter months – helping avoid against heaving and lifting.
