Light Pole Options

6 posts in this topic

I am planning to put a new area light in my yard and wonder whats the best, most cost effective option for a light pole. I went to save big money last night and they have a treated 25 foot round pole, but it was over a hundred bucks. Any ideas of what to use that will be stable and last. I'll spend the money if I have to, just want to make sure I covered my bases.

Thanks!

I heard, at times, the electric companies will have a broken fiberglass one they'll get rid of. Worth a phone call.

If you know a lineman you might be able to get a free pole. I might not be new but it takes a long time to wear out a pole.

Thanks Guys!

I called Crow Wing Power and they told me they do not have any old used poles at this time. The guy actually said they do not replace out good poles, so the ones they do have are either broken or really rotten. He didn't suggest using one of them.

What time do lineman take their lunch break? Only kidding, looks like I am back to saving big money....
