I put my first split rail fence in the other day, it was a custom ordered 100% western cedar 3-rail. It was weird putting in a fence without a level- because everything is rough-cut and some a little bendy, its all eye-balled. Looks fantastic though. 10 hours in 40* rain, I think it was 340'. I used a dingo 425tx to auger the holes. Here are some picts: You can see the smoothed out remains of a couple of the 9 mature trees that I took down the day before -gotta love my stihl chainsaw, too bad some a-hole ripped it off my trailer the night I got done with this project.
