Disc for cutting asphalt

I have to install two security posts for my daughter (Builders site manager tells me 3" asphalt and then MOT").

Will a normal masonry disc cut asphalt or do I need a special kind of disc.

Whose are the best - I have a relatively old 110v Makita 230mm cutter which takes offset discs - a noisy beast!

To concrete them in should I use standard 20mm ballast/cement mix (6/7:1) or is there a better mix to use?
