Being hardheaded as usual, I went with a auger and it was definetely worth it. Also instead of going post, rail, post, rail, I put all the posts in and made sure they would fit the 16' rail before I tamped them in for sure. The fence turned out great and if you want to see pictures look on my picture thread.

Vecchio,

Looks good, I see one little tiny flaw but you would actually have to look to spot it. Other than that it's awesome. And I suggested post, rail, post, rail because I didn't realize you weren't using the posts with the holes but instead nailed them to the posts so sorry about the confusion. What auger did you use? Those things are good but sometimes a PIA. Great job!

I think i know the flaw you see. Is it the one 4x4 that is shorter than the others? And i rented one from Home Depot. It was a two man auger with a 8" bit. It was a bit heavy for two people but it dug the holes with ease. Good thing i figured the rental into the job. Much less work that post hole digging all the holes.

Yes, that's the one lol but like I said, I had to look really hard for it. Man how I hate those Home Depot augers, I got a Little Beaver hydraulic one man auger, the reverse is great because I know the ones that Home Depot rents around me don't have it and its more than just a PIA to get out if it gets stuck.

Yes, I asked the customer if it bothers them that the one is lower than the others and she said it is no problem. But yes not having a reverse a PITA. Driving back to home depot to take it back i saw a dingo with a hydro auger which looked so much more fun to operate. The other thing with the auger i rented, the exhaust went straight into my body when operating it from one side. It was extremely loud.

another problem with them is breaking your wrist because of a root. but most of them have a clutch system than will stop the spinning when the safety bar hits your body. not fool or accident proof though. I actually saw a young man go for a spin once around the auger. he had to take a week off because of a serious sprain.

burying the damn things is no fun either

Yeah the one we rented had a clutch on it. As long as you had enough common sense to stop the throttle when it got hung up you were fine. Ours ran straight through roots but rocks were another problem.
