    Protect post knocker hydraulic leak

    There will be a crack in the casing, on the lime green bit, coming away from the threads, unfortunately it is terminal and you will need a new pump. its a common fault on that pump.

    Protect post knocker hydraulic leak

    So if you've replaced the washer or o ring. There has to be one or the other in that fitting. First thing put some Teflon tape on those threads. Along with any other hydraulic fittings you take loose. Make sure you hold the tape back from the ends a few threads of course. If you still have a leak replace the fitting. You'll have to pull that line and take it to someone who builds hydraulic lines.... They wear out especially on something like a post driver.

    When using the knocker it’s a pretty much constant drip. Doesn’t drip if it’s not using knocker hydraulics. I’ve had the Lott apart and replaced the washer no luck there.

    Have you had a stick knock it? the bit that screws into the pump is replaceable so might be worth trying that. How much you losing? Just weeping or a flow?

    Protect post knocker hydraulic leak

    Hi guys hope someone can help. My rg30 machine has an annoying leak, see pic. Tighten it, but doesn’t seem to make any difference. should there be a washer in there? (There never has been). Reluctant to over tighten, but maybe I’m not tightening it enough?

    Rusting netting

    Excellent article. Many thanks It would seem it is the fence post as i have two different suppliers post and only one supplier has rusted. And from reading your posted article, reminded me that the post that has rusted wire on them were very damp when purchase and i installed them almost straight away

    You can also opt for deer fences for keeping your dogs, as they don't have wider gap to let the dogs escape.

    No. But we do sell to fencing posts to local farmers. It is getting cold here, but for next season this could be interesting addition.

    welcome to the forums Siim. Do you also sell wire in Estonia?

    Hi Fencing producer from Estonia here. Many fencers in UK might have used our poles, since we sell our production to UK and Ireland. It is interesting to read and see where our products might be used. Siim.

    Contact with some wood preservatives will cause corrosion. ACQ is especially bad about eating fasteners/steel. https://www.fpl.fs.fed.us/documnts/pdf1987/baker87a.pdf

    Rusting netting

    I don't think the galv was damaged. The post are wooden, after googling 'sacrificial anode' i don't think that can happen on wood posts. I have been thinkingabout this over the weekend and noticed that the rust is only on a few newly purchased post. The older posts seem fine.

    Rusting netting

    is the problem happening on metal posts or wood? could it be that the wire in contact with the post has become a sacrificial anode for the rest of the fence?

    Rusting netting

    Is it possible the galvanization on the wire was damaged somehow during install?

    Rusting netting

    Just wondering if any of you guys have had problems with excessive rusting of fencing/sheep netting just on wires which are wrapped around or touching a fence strainer post. Strange that if it is not touching the post it is ok

    Annoying things that happen whilst fencing.

    to be out working on a 50 year old barbed wire fence with only pliers and a home made pounder with a pocket full of re straightened staples you salvaged from yesterdays repair. and have a professional builder drive by and just laugh at you. wink

    Leave the interfering horizontal brace out until after you make your pull and hook up

    I think I'm following..... Strip your vertical stays and tie off at the strainers like normal, and use a gut strain. Saves the frustration of trying to tie off under tension in the crowded space of an inside corner.
