    Taking down old fences

    My fencing supplier gave me one of these easy staple pullers to try but it was the mark 1 model [he has modified it since] works okay on soft wood but try taking staples out of old larch stakes or oak posts it would snap the wire sent back for a refund. rather stick to the 5 in 1 fencing tool much better

    What do you do with old wire

    Leave on farm where possible, but if have to clear from the site we make a small charge for hassle of clearing and itemise on the bill. Then leave a pile to accumulate and take into local scrap merchant, not as good these days no cash all has to go through books. any good stuff use for patching work At least this way were not out of pocket for removing waste.

    Motorway fencing

    We have done some for narrow gaged railway specked like this but after discusing with the railway we sugesed that wire first and rails after would be a better job and look a loot neater they agreed. As to why wire on top most probably someone in office that has never fenced before and got no practical knowlage of fencing.
