Typically about a foot for most driveway applications
Pro Dunk basketball hoops have between 3' and 5' of overhang depending on the model. Overhang is defined as the distance from the front of the post to the backboard. It's beneficial for players to allow room for layups and rebounding. It also gives you flexibility when placing your post.
A few things to consider when placing your post
Check out our great video going over all of the aspects in choosing the best location for your post.
Welcome basketball fans. My name is Ryan with Pro Dunk Hoops. Today were going to be talking about how far from your driveway you should install your new basketball goal. I get this question on the phone pretty often so I thought I'd put together this short segment to kind of explain how to get the most out of your playing area. I've got some great diagrams to put up on the white board so, let's get started.
So, to answer our question, we're going to have to learn a little bit about what overhang is. And it's actually defined as the distance from the front of the pole to the front of the backboard here. And it's important because a lot of play actually goes on underneath the backboard or behind the backboard here. For example if you're going to be running in for lay-ups or boxing out for rebounds you're going to be in this area, playing quite a bit. Another thing is the basketball is not always going to land right underneath the basket so sometimes it'll come in from and angle like this and land right there. So you're going to want your playing area. So, let's say this is your playing area. You really want it just as close as possible to where your pole is going to be installed so you can take full advantage of the basketball goal's overhang. Now having said that, if you've got a shallowing playing area, so out here you do't have too much room and you want to get in a free-throw line or a three-point line or something like that you can actually pull that pole off of your playing area a little bit and get more area in front of the backboard instead of behind the backboard. Having said that you don't want, you want the backboard hanging over at least two feet. Otherwise you're going to run into a lot of problems with the ball hitting the grass and going and doing that. So, in summary, you're really going to want your pole just as close to the playing area as possible unless you have a very shallow playing area.
So, that's all of the information I've got for you today. I hope this is going to help you maximize your playing area and thanks for watching and remember better basketball goals, better prices, produnkhoops.com.
Yes it is
Everything you need for installation is included except the concrete. We even include the rebar used to steel reinforce your concrete.
The pier kit is sometimes called a concrete anchor or ground kit. It consists of four or six bolts (depending on the model) as well as a template to get those bolts into the correct hole pattern. This is sunk into your wet concrete footer during installation leaving about four inches of thread above ground. After the concrete has cured, the basketball system's pole is attached to these.
Watch our installation video showing the pier kit being installed

Do not skimp if your soil is not very supportive like a sand. Watch our installation video
Yes if your concrete is strong enough and thick enough
You should consult the bolt manufacturer's directions but typically your concrete should beat least 6" thick and steel reinforced. The thicker the better.
To determine how thick your concrete is, consider drilling a pilot hole. If you find your concrete is 6" thick you should get a bolt that is 9" long (5" down hole with 4" of thread that the basketball pole will attach to).
Some common bolt brands are Red Head and Hilti. You may need order these from a specialty hardware company like Fastenal to get the correct length and diameter.
If your concrete is not suitable for a wedge anchor it's very common to cut / jackhammer through it allowing you to dig down and pour a traditional concrete footer
