Seen guys use a mini excavator with a jack hammer attachment on it. Best part was the mini ex stayed on they trailer behind the truck. They swung off the side of the trailer, made the hole, then swung to opposite to do the same. Quick, fast, and easy, drove down the trail. I think similar attachments can be put on bobcats as well. Biggest challenge would be snow depth and getting stuck with this type of setup. When I saw these guys in action, there was only a dusting of snow on frozen soil.

At work I often have to drive 5/8 inch X 8 foot rods into the ground for electrical services.

I use a Bosh hammer drill and one of their attachments to drive them in, frozen ground is no problem ever.
