I have been sort of watching a contractor putting in a old style wood farm fence for the last month. These guys are SLOW! They got down the old barb wire fence 3 weeks ago and they show up for a day and do a little then are gone for a week, They delivered the boards about a month ago. Right now they are trying to pull a T-post for the last 20 minutes . I got a old t-post remover that fits my 3 point on my tractor and in less than a minute its pulled.(at auction for $20.00 a home fab unit) but these guys supposely should have all the equipment needed to put in a 3 board fence, they are pulling these by hand. I know one thing I would never hire this gang. I talked to my neighbor last week and at least he hasn't paid anything yet, He is fencing the entire front of his property with the new fence. I find it amazing these guys do not even have a tractor to do the with a post hole digger and everything right here. I'm glad I generally never hire out but rent any equipment I need for any project I have in mind.
