Roughneck Mailbox Post is rated 1.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Making a great product bad We had the Rubbermaid post and mailbox for 24 years. When we moved to a new house we ordered what we thought would be the same product. What a disappointment to find a cheap wooden stake that does not fit correctly into the cheaper designed post. In addition, the instructions we received did not include an English version. I am not wasting my time installing this cheaper design because I don't think it will last two winters. I would gladly pay more for a better product like the one I purchased 24 years ago. I am sending this one back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely disappointing! After 18 years of having my Rubbermaid mailbox setting along a major state highway, the mounting post for the box was severed at the base as the deep winter snow was being pushed back by the highway department grader. Since I had great service from the existing box, I made a trip back to The Home Depot to buy a replacement. In found the Rubbermaid Patriot box very quickly, but HD did not have the corresponding mounting post. After researching where I could get a post to mount the box, HD ordered the mounting unit from Solar Group and it arrived at the store about two weeks later. The plastic post was 1/3 the thickness of the previous post and the wooden stack to mount the post to after being driven into the ground waswas a 2x3 oak post that did not even begin to fill the 4x4 interior of the mounting post. Following the instruction precisely, I assembled the parts and mounted them the prescribed distance of the highway. Looking at the final product, in later September, I think, unless that post is some miracle, it ain't going to make it through the winter. But post was made for this great box, so maybe I am missing something? The second snow fall of the year was all that was needed for the plow to throw snow off the roadway enough to shatter the post. The Rubbermaid mailbox was still in tact, laying with the shatter remnents of the post. Huge disappointment and to make things worse, one needs to figure out how to get a replacement mailbox out there to receive the next delivery of mail. I had luckily saved the old box and stack, so I took them out to the pile of snow and pushed them into place. I was good as long as the snow kept coming and I could continue to shovel snow around the post and box to hold it into place. I was making plans to see what I would do when the Spring thaw came and I will stop there. The old post was great! Did the "job" for many years. I can never understand when a supplier produces a superior product, why would they want to change it. I have designed a steel and concrete structure to mount a replacement post on, and using the old post with the new mailbox mounted on it, I am ready for many more Michigan Winters. Do yourself a favor; do not even consider purchasing this mounting post.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from terrible!!! Very disappointed in this revised post assembly for the excellent Rubbermaid mailbox. The "old one" I installed at the farm was model 7274 with a right angle post and mounting bracket. It was GREAT, good design, and has lasted several years through being hit and run down by kids and farm equipment. All that was needed was to snap it back together and straighten the post. Nothing was broken. The reason for the extremely poor rating is that now the post has a wood stake which does NOT fit inside the post and will not hold up in various weather conditions and the stake will rot out after a few years. Why did you change the design? I WANT ANOTHER ON JUST LIKE THE OLD ONE!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable as durable can be!!! I bought my Roughneck mailbox post over 15 years ago and it has served very well in all that time. We have temperatures from -30*F up to 100+ each year, and it survives it all. My dad needs a new mailbox and post, and I will be purchasing one of these for him.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Garbage The ground mount stake supplied (not shown) does not properly fit into the Roughneck post (too small in all dimensions). As a result the supplied directions cannot be utilized. If you secured the post as requested it would probably break. I will return this item. Unbelievable that this is a Rubbermaid product.
