Did I get this right? You drive a pilot rod in then pull It? Then drive a sharpened treated wood post?

Yes sir. We only do it like that in rocky ground or the dry season. That farm has extremely tight soil, and it hadn't rained in about 4 months.

You got your rig on a tracked dozer. Is that setup for fencing steep difficult terrain?

The track machine is a Yanmar C50R dumper. The primary reason for this setup is the lack of available labor. It took me a minute to get it dialed in, but running controls to the back makes it a one man operation. It is also handy for rough/steep terrain, which we get plenty of.

Too many folks don't want to work.
