Concrete piles…the wait is long!

Stop digging holes and wasting your precious time!  On top of spending money on expensive rental equipment that are hard to maneuver.  Don’t waste your time waiting for the concrete to dry, which may take several days.  Not to mention, in all probability you’ll have to rent a motorized auger and dig afterwards.  You must remember that you have to be located under the frost zone so that your installation does not shift during the frost and thaw seasons.  Also, you’ll likely have to manually dig before pouring your foundations.
