Ray Markey: I'm going to continue to mix. At least I know I get close to even consistency and fewer dry/air pockets. This may work, but I know my method does for sure.
mikey8strokes: thank you,
kdw75: I just don't think I could stand not to mix the concrete beforehand.
rickster348: I'm putting a mailbox post up soon and already have a bag, Thanks.
manny6584: Why in the world would you or anyone waste time and money ordering concrete from a truck just to install a post?????? lol
Sakrete: You can order concrete from a ready mix truck but the bagged mixes are perfect for around the home jobs and for the DIY'r. Thanks for viewing.
Sakrete: Fast Setting is highly effective in this situation. Why pre-mix for post setting if you don't have too. If using the Sakrete High Strength Concrete Mix or using the Fast Setting Concrete Mix for footers or slabs then yes, we would suggest pre-mixing. Thanks for your viewing.
malachy1847: Don't want to get into a wordfest over this,but here in mild temperate South west Ireland the past three winter / spring seasons have been seriously manic... leading to fence posts sunk many years ago loosing out to mother natures travails... all i was saying was as a belt and braces ..  sink the posts to the correct depth and  finish the mortar slighty above the ground level.it's just good practice as pounding of water will in time dilute even the best pressure treated Tanalised lumbar
mrbasser71: Like I said. It's "treated" lumber. It will last for many, many years. It is also a simple wooden fence they are building, not a house. The fence itself will be subject to far worse conditions than the post below the ground. Again, it is a FENCEPOST. Let's not put too much thought into this.
malachy1847: Level of the mix too low... as water will lodge and post rot out could also pond and freeze thaw freeze thaw during the wintertime causing the post to pop up, maybe also consideration needs to be given to those sinking same lower in cold climates just to assure same is put lower than the frost line....
thetruth: bracing is for initializing position
creepyrat1: Not buying it. I'll stick with mixing.
Stihl Magnum: put a shovel full in the bottom then set the post on top
womackke: sakrete says shhhh hahaha... use pea gravel if your worried
Adam Akers: I agree, I used sakrete for some fence posts last summer and that is exactly how we did it.. Coated the bottom in tar and mixed the sakrete in a wheelbarrow with water and a concrete hoe. It worked really well.
kevin: "The mixture is mixed" I thought we didn't have to mix it.
mrbasser71: That is what is called "treated lumber" The post has been pre-soaked with a solution that prevents ground contact from rotting the wood. The way they are setting the concrete is fine. If you were to dig that post out later you would find that the concrete soaked in the water and fully cured with little difficulty.
spellbound111: These types of videos are made by cowboy builders who give bad information, they are only trying to sell us something. The wooden posts should be painted with tar to a height of 10 cm above ground level before setting into the ground. Fast Setting Concrete Mix is very ineffective by the method shown in this video, it is very effective if mixed with water in a large tub the old fashioned way and the poured into the post hole. But these clowns don't want you to know this !!
Al Senzick: Great job
