    Installing T posts with 2 series

    Has anyone installed T posts with a 2 series? Tomorrow i am going to try and do so. I'm gonna grab a pounder with the grapple and see if i cant shove them into the ground.

    Any ideas?

    Just depends on how hard your soil is. I usually end up pounding them in by hand. If the ground is even a little hard, I can’t even push them in with the skid loader. Getting them straight is another matter.

    Wait for more rain....your not that far south of me.

    This dirt is like a rock.

    I've tryed with the mini ex...its just not easy.

    What does help....cause they Shear the posts (dirt end is corkscrewed)....Fine tune the dirt end with a angle grinder/airsander..whatever to get a good edge going in dirt.

    SINK the SPADE....I popped a front tire on the 955 on one while mowing . I set it too shallow...Spendy Fix.

    I'm done...back to abbynormal

    I tried to drive a tee post a week ago with my 4066R bucket and it didn’t work - ground was too hard.

    You could try one of these to penetrate the soil first. Surveyors use a small form of these to drive stakes

    How many posts do you have to install?

    It may be more effective to rent a T-post driver.

    Already set about 40 by hand they were easy cause my neighbor over irrigates and the soil is soft. I'm using 7' posts set 2' into the ground. I have another 1/2 mile of fence at least to replace.

    Bale spike thats an idea. I was thinking of grabbing a t post pounder in the root grapple then aligning it verticle with a post inside and try and push it into the dirt. Tomorrow i will try amd will post how it works. Its rained for two days and already was wet from over irrigation so should be easy
