    Rusting netting

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

    Measurement app

    I believe the tornado app does that.

    Modification or add on equipment for tracked driver?

    Better yet, a cooler for the summer and a propane stove for the winter.

    Modification or add on equipment for tracked driver?

    We don't have a tracked driver, but a simple thing I like on a post driving machine is tool storage. Organized tool storage. Stocked with things like chain strainers, wire cutters, pliers, crimp sleeves, brace pins, etc... Keeps from dragging tools in and out of the truck and keeps them easily accessible. I also like a mounted spinning jenny to pull wire off to build braces with and lay out a guide line.

    Minimum tractor size for Kinghitter

    Thats 30k cheaper than a new tractor. Hmmmm.... Something ive always wondered, how do you set up the controls to drive the dumper from the ground?

    Minimum tractor size for Kinghitter

    Curious what everyone would recommend for safely operating a Kinghitter series 3. Want to stay as small as possible for access and transportation concerns but still want to be able to safely handle the driver. Hydraulics not a concern as have converted the unit to self contained with a PTO pump. Thanks

    Your favourite tools.

    The geared wire twister. First time I saw it I thought it was silly, but now I cant live without it.

    Tying small box wires

    I like the t clip gripples, but always struggle with the tension curve not letting the wire pull through. Plus with 1348-3 it seems like you have to strip off knots till kingdom come.

    Tying small box wires

    Are you using low carbon wire? The low carbon stuff is so easy to tie compared to the high tensile I wouldnt bother with t clip gripples.

    Tying small box wires

    How is everyone tying the small box wires like 1348-3 or 2x4 horse fence? I believe this would translate to something like R13/120/8 for the metric folks. I don't have a problem with larger box wire but struggle with the small box stuff to tie a proper termination knot.

    Kinghitter Series 3 Rock Spike

    We've tried to drill pilot holes with our beltec and then pound, doesnt work very well. Need something to bust the rock and push it away, not just loosen the dirt up.

    Kinghitter Series 3 Rock Spike

    It looks like we can buy a rock spike kit from Kinghitter for $5k. That may be the route to go, idk. But its tempting when you have a nice shop with a welder, torch, plasma cutter, and grinder to just fabricate something.

    Kinghitter Series 3 Rock Spike

    We are currently in the process of purchasing a series 3 Kinghitter that is side mount. It has no rock spike or pilot auger. We wanted to purchase a unit with a rock spike but this one was just too good of a price to pass up. Does anyone have any experience with fabricating a rock spike and an extractor? Seems as if it is a fairly simple system.
