Auger Bobcat

How much to pay someone to dig post holes?

Code in my part of MN says that post holes for a deck must be 5' deep. Sounds crazy to me, but that's the code. I was just going to dig them myself by hand or by renting a power auger until I found out I have to go that deep. Most power augers I've seen can generally only go around 3' deep. Are there bigger augers out there to rent that go down 5'? Or around how much does it cost to hire someone to come out with something like a Bobcat & auger attachment to dig a dozen holes?

There should definitely be bigger post hole diggers/dirt augers than just 3'. Check out equipment rental places, or a store like The Home Depot where they have a tool rental place of their own. If you don't find anything rentable (which I would be surprised), contacting a bobcat/skid steer/landscape related company or individual that does it for a living would probably be the second best thing.
