Hello, I would definitely suggest using a post hole digger. They are efficient to dig a small but deep hole for the mounting post. The recommendations specs are as follows
USPS requirements state that a mailbox can be no taller than 45 inches above street level. Since most streets have a curb, the standard mailbox height is 42 inches above ground level. So the total height is around 45 inches: 42 inches from the ground, plus the few inches added by the curb.
it is a question of leverage the mail box will be subject to. If minimal then a post hole auger will suffice but beware of anyone leaning on it because it is in a soft substrata.
