But he would have to have a "HOLE" saw to cut those wells up into post holes. From what I understand they are hard to keep sharp. :roll:

Are they heavy? Last postholes I bought were very light. Hardly knew they were on the trailer. Had to tie them down to keep them from blowing off.

you guys are just TOO funny!! i haven't had a chance since sunday to check this, but i would think, mike and ALA, that the kudzu would keep your fences up; and all the rest of you jokers, well, if you'all lived on the great hill country of NE nebraska, or you all in canada, we KNOW what shelterbelts are and how useful they can be.
for example: my house is on the east side of a hill running west to east, about a 20 degree slope, runs north to south about a 5 degree slope (these are all WILD slope est, BTW). i have shelter belts on the top of the slope to the west, and to the north --the north is the one i'm concerned about. seems like a lot of trash is growing under the canopy, including, god forbid, the ubiquitus (sp?) mulberry.
anyway, the best way i've found for killing mulberry is to chop off as far below ground as i can get, then salt the remaining root. doesn't grow back. better stop or you'll get tired of me :roll:

Post holes weigh out pretty good as long as you keep em froze :!: Could be a problem getting them down to Alabam. I could find a couple of ole boys that will deliver just for the cost of their trip! Send directions ! :wink:
