I used a normal 1.75" depth hole saw with a single cut, choosing to not remove the waste material and drill to a deeper depth. Drill used was a Milwaukee 1/2" hammer drill and Rigid hole saw. Easy to drill - placed Titan anchor on hole and with no more than 6 or 7 hits using a 3# mallet the anchor was set. I had concerns about alignment, as well - orientation or twist of the post relative to the anchor. Laying the assembly on a concrete floor and just a light tap on the side that was high squared everything up nicely. The application was a little different, in that I was mounting atop deck boards, and placement was over an I-Beam, so lag screws were not an o
