Today we started this fence moving job for a factory in town. 250 ft of 6ft chain link to be moved out 25ft. 30+ holes and two 20ft gates. Today we drilled the holes and set 26 posts. We would have set them all but we were short shipped.

Drilling went not too bad we dug 30 in a little over 2 hours. We used at least 10 sheer pins

Using a cement truck is sooo much easier then hand mixing.

These holes are for a fence around the lunch area.

Nice work!!! Fencing seems like hard hard work... you got a cement truck to come in or did you mix it all by hand??? Also what kind of truck do you got and any other pics you can show us of it???

Yeah that would have been an option but what a pain in the a$$. We've done it before. All those post will be recycled at the bosses farm to hold the goats in. The owner of the factory also owns a fence supply company. He supplied all new posts, 210ft of top rail and all hardware.

Looks great, how did you make the posts nice and straight while the concrete set? Did you have any helpers -besides the sweet Kabota? Lastly, the DOT lets you haul the tractor using straps? I was under the impression I would need to use chain.... whenever I rototill I always make sure to have plenty of sheer pins also:laugh:

What do you get a foot to do a job like this? I'm doing one next week that is about 660 feet. Using all the old material except buying new post. Thanks

By the hour. The boss and I talked about how to quote and bill this. Hourly was the easiest. Even the posts were hourly.

We(the boss and I) set the posts as the concrete is pored. After the holes were dug we leveled each post and gently laid it to the back of the hole. When the cement truck shows up we gently stand the post back up and give it a quick check. As the cement is filling the hole we hold the post steady. We check level again and move on to the next one. When the cement truck leaves we'll check all post again. As far as the straps, In Canada these straps are legite. As far as I know.
