    Comments about RUBBERMAID Rubbermiad® Roughneck® Mailbox Post and Mounting Kit (MB115B):

    Purchased this from Ace. It's listed as requiring no digging or concrete mixing. That's laughable. The construction of the polymer is not bad at all. The wooden post that you mount the polymer to is basically a small board with a point on the end, smaller than a 2 x 4. It looks like a fence picket. The "picket" doesn't completely fill the polymer post which is slightly over 3" square. However, you cannot go to your average hardware store and purchase a 3" square post. So, you are stuck with this flimsy, rectangular "picket" that you have to use as the anchor and screw the polymer into. It's a joke setup. We needed to get a mailbox up in a hurry in bad weather so used this but had to replace in two months at it was falling over. Do yourself a favor and just buy the good post, buy a post level, get a little gravel and mount the post with cement. You'll be happy that you did.

    Comments about RUBBERMAID Rubbermiad® Roughneck® Mailbox Post and Mounting Kit (MB115B):

    I was very favorably impressed by the Rubbermaid Roughneck mailbox (still in great shape after 15 years of Midwest weather) and bought the Roughneck mailbox post to replace a wooden mailbox post that did not survive 15 years. There were no installation instructions on or inside the box, but instructions were available for download from the Rubbermaid web site. The instructions appear to be an incomplete modification of instructions for an earlier design that used a larger wooden mounting stake and different hardware. No information was given on how the smaller mounting stake was to be oriented and instructions for the mounting screws were inappropriate for the smaller stake, as were the instructions for the size of drill bit needed. e-mail customer support from the maker (Gibraltar Industries) was prompt and attempted to be helpful, but had access only to the same outdated instructions. So buyers/installers must use their own judgement.

    The finished installation looks good. The PVC post is rigid and should last at least as long as the Roughneck mailbox has. Time will tell if the small wood mounting stake is as durable. If not, it can be replaced by a pressure-treated 4x4 mounting post shaved to fit inside the PVC post. A warning: information on the box implies that this post can be installed using only a screwdriver, pliers, and hammer. That is not true. A drill was also required and installation in rocky soil may require some digging. Installation should not be a problem for anyone with a good collection of tools and moderate do-it-yourself experience.

    Earlier, my comments still stand, but Snow-Plow dude totally destroyed the new replacement Roughneck Mailbox. The first kit lasted nearly 30 years and now 2 are destroyed in less than 14 months! Its time to reconsider mail location and materials used.

    Snowplow dude destroyed our last one of nearly 30 years standing! We still have the functional remnant in a bucket of cement as a backup mailbox. This new one literally was installed in the same spot and the configuration was the same. This mailbox combo is not fancy but is functional and rugged!
