Challenges involved in the project

  • The challenge was three fold on this job.
  • Addressing underground rock while driving strainer posts and digging holes for stays was the first.
  • The second one was more internal. Paul challenged himself to build a fencing trailer that could cope with running out the required 3 barbs in one run and could accommodate two spinners for the remaining 4 wires required.
  • A small workforce of just Paul and Trish (part time) has been the driving factor behind making what we do as efficient as possible. The third challenge was the weather… #$%^ cold, windy and just plain miserable for 4 of the 5 days!

Products used on the project

  • Waratah wire & star posts was used for this job.
  • We used their Black 165cm Star Posts, Long Life Blue 2mm Barb and Long Life Blue Tyeasy High Tension Plain wire along the fence line.
  • We used 100nb Gal 2.4m Pipe with Caps for strainers and intermediates and 40nb gal Med Wall 3.6m pipe for stays welded to a 800mm section of 100nb section with cap as a staypipe.
  • 2.5mm Long life Tie wire was cut into 240mm sections to tie on the barb.

Outcome of the project

  • We erected 940 metres of 3 barb & 4 plain wire fence including 10 posts and 2 stays in 5 days ( Trish only working two of those days).
  • The new fencing trailer Paul built worked a treat and made the hard yards easier.
  • The fence looked awesome, straight and practical and made to last.

This project by PH Fencing has been nominated in the Australian FENCING Awards 2021.
