    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???

    would it have been possible to use the old poles and cement and put them back into the ground

    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.

    2005 dodge ram 3500.
