anyone willing to help a fellow LFF member replace a fence?

I'll buy all the beer you can drink and order food.  I have a partially torn rotator cuf so I need some help getting rid of my damaged fence and putting up a new one...

I mostly need help removing the old one and putting up the new posts, I will put up the pickets...

I figured I had nothing to lose by asking and hoping for the best.


Thanks.

No sir,

I will be getting the material, Posts, Pickets etc... in the next few days. I'm just hoping to recruit some folks first.

I don't really know what else I need either. the old one is pretty wore out and can be dismantled by hand.

I know I need and Auger as well but that can be rented from the Home Depot.

correct, but once the panels are removed I'm pretty sure we can push them back and forth and lift them off the ground. some are broken but do we really need to put the new posts where the old ones are?

if the ground is wet, you can move them around and then pull them out, otherwise it is just a hernia waitin to happen.  icon_lol

if the old holes are in the right place, then why wouldn't you just clean them out and reuse them.  No auger required - maybe a  sharp shooter is all you need. 

We just recently did this at church, but the new fence was chain link and we had somebody donate one of them contraptions that just pushes the posts in the ground and you are done.  No digging.

Thank you, for the offer. I may take you up on that.
I need help getting rid of the old fence and set the new posts in the concrete,,,, I can take then my time and put the pickets up a few at a time.
I was in Physical Therapy today and told the PT lady what I was about to do and she said I should ABSOLUTELY NOT do any hammering or heavy lifting with my arm...   icon_frown the trouble is I'm a lefty and it's my left shoulder too. called a contractor and no way I can afford to pay that much. Had I known this was going to happen I would NOT have bought my boat.
