Fencing in Rock

Recommended Posts

Time to right the fence.

Turns out my property line is 17 yards off. I need put up some fence (T posts) into some rock, and I'm hoping there's a good way to do it.

 

Most of the 240 ft I'm lining with T posts is ok, but there's about 30 ft of rock that I have to navigate.

 

What's the best way to put a post into rock!? Do you have to drill first?

Rotary hammer drill, and a large concrete drill bit? Large bits are pricy.

Go rent a Hilti TE-70 roto hammer and a 2" bit.

Rock drill. Most ag rental companies have them.

Cool, thanks.

 

Turns out Home Depot has a roto hammer 2" Makita for about $75 bucks a day.

but It's gonna take you like 13 days to drill one hole.

AtoZ (if there's one close to you) is cheaper than depot. Most of the mom n pop shops that rent tools are always cheaper than depot

5guyshunting has it figured out !!! Last time I had to put t post in rock we used a big Ingersoll Rand compressor and a rotating jack hammer with a drill bit then put the post in and hammer away with a t post driver. PITA !

Gorilla glue the some bitch to the rock, drop the mic and walk away.

Pretty much.

They make epoxy for shallow posts, sets up quick so be prepared.

30' of fence posts placed over rock isnt crucial if you have good solid corners and sturdy posts either side of the rocks.

You can also build a rock column over the rock. Build a cage where the post goes and fill with rocks.post-11051-0-78409100-1526509610.jpg

I hadn't thought of that. And the bone is a great touch.

 

It's going to hold some horses- but you know, that might just work.

Out in the sticks you see these rock posts often. Horses; use smooth tension wire, no Barb's and a strand or two of hot wire.
