I pull the net as a whole. all at once. I start making off at the bottom then the top and fill in from there. theres some videos back in this thread. ill dig em out when I get a chance


I could have missed something Fence, but I think he's working with barb wire? I like to work from the top down, just because the wire won't hang up as much.
agreed. with barb wire everything goes top to bottom...thanks farm

I tried renting a post hammer, but couldn't find one. So I dug a 4' deep holes for 8' posts and backfilled with 1' of concrete and the top 3' with road base. I also treated the posts with 50/50 used motor oil and diesel. The posts seem real solid, we'll see once I pull the wire.

Just build a good brace and you shouldn't have a problem.

My eyes..or are some of them driving the posts in leaning?
(the guy that did the video needs to call it, like horse racing.. "[i]And they're Off! Team one jumps out ahead, a member of team three dropped something and had to go back for it.. )

20 Mexicans with manual post hole diggers might give them all a run for their $$ too.

Not all the rock in Fence’s territory is like that. Some of it is smooth as a parking lot and goes on for miles. The parking lot rock is much easier on tires. Lol

closest rock on my place is about 1500' straight down unless you count pea gravel and unconsolidated iron ore
