    25' Light Pole

    Have a 25' aluminum light pole with arm and cobra head light fixture. They are being mounted to a foundation already in place. There are about 10 of them about 100' apart. Any feed back on how long to install would be helpful. Put together on ground and install with boom truck I'm assuming. I'm thinking two guys can assemble and mount 2-3 in a 7-8 hours day.

    Is the pole base wiring already there? 1.5/hr per pole for install is a conservative estimate. If they need to pull the circuits, all of them will take 2 days. Pole install with two guys should be done within a day.

    Yes pole base wiring there. When you say pulls circuits you mean from light pole fixture down pole
    to be spliced in the access/hand hole?

    Just did a job: 4 fiberglass 25' poles, new fixtures.
    2 guys, pole truck, 4 hours. (not their first rodeo though)

    1) Remove existing poles, maybe hardest part of the job (rusted nuts).
    2) Drill pole for new fixtures, mount fixtures, run wire down pole.
    3) mount and level new poles.
    4) Connect to existing wiring.
