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....

    • Well yeah but can you name a vehicle built for off road including any domestic pickup truck that doesn't have issues with rust. Fenders, rockers, frames etc. If you play in the mud and salt you need to maintain them. UTVs are no different. Ask yourself why Polaris would put the air filter canister intake in the rear wheel well so it is sucking in the air from the dustiest area they could possibly draw it from resulting in a 4k bill when the motor grenades.    Jeeps are fun, used ones can be had at a reasonable price but by their nature you need to be careful when you purchase because if the previous owner drove them the way they were marketed then they may have some issues.   But the aftermarket has an amazing amount of mods,upgrades and accessories to make your Jeep into anything you want and because the generally go 10 years between major design changes there are a large number of parts available if you need them.     
    • Anyfish it's still points and way better than a zero for points! Congrats on the fine eating bird.
    • Pick up a Jake morning.  Not going help the team score, if at all.  But it sure will taste good.
    • It's been very quiet in the woods the past few days.  Some gobbling this morning.
    • Nice! Way to go! Hope I'm able to get out and enjoy hunting when I'm that age.
    • Well, one of the advantages to owning a Jeep is there are always plenty of Jeep owners out there looking for parts, so if you get ahold of one with a bad frame, you could always part it out and sell the parts to another Jeep owner who believes they have a good frame....      
    • I am saying if you go mudding or off-roading you will plug any of the drain holes they could put in there anyway. Not much different from the weep holes they put in the rear fenderwells and rockers of trucks.  I suppose it may have benefit to those who stay on pavement.
    • They put holes in the sides of the frame, so salt and mud could get in, but no holes in the bottom so they could drain, so not sure if that was planned, or just p*ss poor engineering.  They probably didn't really care as long as they outlasted the warranty period.        
    • Drain holes just end up getting plugged with mud and debris anyway.
