Started digging out old, rusty basketball hoop
Pole is set in concrete block ~5 inches below surface
Old rusty pole no match for the reciprocating saw.
No trace of the old hoop.
All the parts laid out for the new basketball hoop.
Attaching the backboard to the pole/base assembly.
Finishing hoop (set at lowest height).
Although the hoop already has wheels, moving it takes a lot of effort (need to carefully tip it forward, roll it around). I decided to build a mobile base that can also be leveled (driveway is sloped)
The finished mobile base. There are 6 casters and 6 leveling feet.
Closeup of caster and leveling foot.
Leveling foot extended.
Hoop on finished mobile base.
