It is not a dumb question  If you have soft soil with no rocks your should 
be able to start the screw on an angle and use a lever to twist it in.  I am 
not sure what you would do by hand if you have hard clay, shale and rocks 
like I have.  Generally speaking the easier it is to screw in the easier it 
will pull out.  Machines that install them measure the installation torque 
to ensure adequate holding ability.

Having never installed one, how does one install one by hand? Dumb question 
but I'm faced with maybe doing it & need to be an "inquiring" mind.
Thanks for your input.
