ground post

A couple of people have asked about the titlover ground post on my R7000 so here are a few pix during the concrete pour:

The base post is sunk about 1.2m into the ground, and extends another 1.5m above the ground line. It has a has a pivot bolt at the bottom which goes through the scaffolding pole, and a scaffolding clamp at the top which locks the pole in place when upright.

Here we see the plastic sleeve around the post (to allow it to be drawn out once the concrete has set) and some rubble to help keep it vertical while the postmix concrete was poured.

And thats it with 5 bags of postmix added... oh and a good does of water.
