I am getting a new Kubota L3010 GST 4wd w/loader and backhoe. I am planting a winegrape vineyard and need to build an 8' high deer fence. I have some 4" to 6" steel pipe that I will be using for corner posts, gate posts, and (in-line posts mixed with T-posts). These steel posts are thick wall and have some corrosion. I have hand sanded some but it takes about 2 hours per post and you don't look foward to doing the next one. I also made an attachment and pulled them behind my old Oliver Super 55, that works but takes to long to remove the corrosion. Any suggestions on how I might use my new tractor to turn these posts (steel pipe) to remove the corrosion and get on a good coat of paint. The posts will be cemented in the ground and I will weld caps on the top of them.ThanksSteve

Don't waste time cleaning pipe. The pipe will last longer than you or I if you don't do anything. If it needs to look nice, get a 4 inch or 4 1/2 inch angle grinder and put on a quality twisted-wire wheel and remove any obvious loose dirt/scales and prime with Rustoleum red oxide. Then put on you desired finish color. Now it will really last a very long time. If you absolutely need to have clean steel and you have spare cash, hire some high school kids or go to your local job service and hire someone for a few days to do it for you. Good luck...

Best thing to coat those posts with after you weld the cap on is low melting point tar, warmed, and applied with a brush (can be thinned some with Diesel Fuel). Then don't worry about them lasting or having to paint again.

Other than using the back-hoe for digging the holes, can't think of anything the tractor could do about your corrosion problem.. I can suggest having them sandblasted? I don't have a clue what it would cost. Or maybe you could rent the unit for a day. A local sandblaster could probably knock all those pipes out in less than a day. Thats the route I would take.

I had a neighbor who used to drag steel or iron parts on a chain behind his truck down our gravel road. Seemed to work well, but I watch for traffic!!BR
