If you can get a squad of young strong people to do it with 
wheelbarrows, that's great.  I had mine pumped in.  It took me six 
days (part-time) to dig my 3x3x6 1/2 foot hole.  It took the pump 
truck just under 3 minutes to fill it with concrete!  Awesome, but 
discouraging to see my work disappear so quickly.  It cost about $100 
for the pump dude to put his rig between the mixer and my hole.  By 
the way, my hole was over 100 feet from the driveway.  The pump guy 
used 120 feet of hose.

The whole pour was slicker than boiled okra.  I'd do it again the 
same way!
