    How well are your posts treated?

    I know this past spring we paid $22 for 2 7/8" x 10' raw oil pipe. Hard to justify when we can get a 4-5" x 8' wood post for under $7. Don't think people, or their pocketbooks, would go for it around here. But using galvanized pipe would definitely set a guy above and beyond the competition. Interesting to see the different solutions people have found in different parts of the country.

    How's the cost comparison?

    Thanks that's interesting. They are supposed to be 25 year posts. CCA lodgepole pine, ACQ Doug fir, and Penta Doug Fir are the only posts readily available here. All 3 that are sold locally here in our experience are poorly treated. Virtually zero penetration of the treat! The pines would last 5 years give or take a few. Not good for business to say the least. We import these from Canada, they are not AWPA certified, but do meet Canadian ministry of agriculture and BC highway construction standards. There are several that were installed around here in the mid to late 90s as part of VSP trellis systems, still standing strong. In recent years trellis installation has gravitated towards all steel. We've experimented a lot with posts. We had one customer specifically request ACQ Doug Fir, within two years the fence had experienced approximately 50% post failure. And of course all our steel posts are still standing.

    Senco Cordless Stapler

    Never heard of the Senco, I do believe the Fasco is a decent alternative to the Stockade. They are all more expensive than the traditional hammer method. If I were going to do it I would go for the Stockade and get the best.

    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
