Pricing for Postholes, Deck Footings & Pre-Built Fence Panels
Original Posthole Diggers will satisfy all of your fence and deck building needs from wooden posts and deck footings to pre-built fence posts. We can either dig a post hole where you have pre-marked the position or we can dig and set the posts so they are straight and level. Just ask and we’ll be happy to provide an estimate on this as well.
What We Need
Our machine needs 40″ wide of clearance (minimum) to access the dig site. It is 40″ from outside track to outside track. It is NOT able to climb any steps or stairs as it has a very low under carriage, approx. 2-3 inches clearance.
Please contact Ontario-One Call via phone or their website. It’s a free service where they will locate and mark out the utility lines that may or may not run through your property underground. These will include, but not limited to, hydro, gas and telecom. By law we cannot dig without having current locates.
Clear Line of Sight
A clean line of sight is necessary for us to work, we ask that all obstructions be removed or cut back, (such as old fence, bushes, debris etc.) before we arrive on the day of the dig. (We need to be able to move our machine around comfortably and to run wheel barrels to and from the holes)

Pre-Built Fence Panels
This is a more precision type service. Posts are being set in accordance with pre-built panels and therefore, the distances between the posts must be exact (within a 1/4″). It is for this reason that we have specific pricing for this service and caution customers that there are cases where underground conditions can make it impossible to set the posts in the exact desired locations.
2″ or 3″ posts = an additional charge of $90 per hole
4″x4″ or 6″x6″ posts = and additional charge of $100 per hole
Gates: $300.00 Installed, hardware included.
(our minimum charge applies to machine digging only and not to hand digging, post removal or materials such as sonotubes, saddles, posts, etc.)
Minimum Charge starting at $400.00
Fence posts to be provided by client.
