 metal fence post needed to be romoved.

Being a tractor lover and wanting to find new ways to get tractor time, I am going to go to the drive in theater this eveining on mine with the wife sitting in the bucket with the pop-corn. Any way how would one go about pulling up metal fence post. 7 footer I think. I have a 4110 with fel and 3pt hitch. I tried the buck and used it to catch the bumps on the post, it sliped off. Dug with the bucket and it got it lose so I could pull and tug by hand. But I have many of them to remove. What about a chain around the bucket or the hitch. Any ideas.

thanks

roger

 metal fence post needed to be romoved.

I have removed a bunch of posts with the 3 PH arms. I have a drawbar between the ball joints and I just chain the drawbar to the post and lift. I have pulled out t-posts, wood posts, and metal posts. Generally the 3PH will lift quite a bit more than your maximum loader capacity. It did not work well on a small tree stump which seems to have roots that are pretty deep, but tree stumps always seem to be problematic.

If you don't have a drawbar, you can probably just use one side or use an implement like a subsoiler to attach the post too. The chain attachment technique is somewhat critical. Make sure that you have at least one full wrap of the chain around the post alone and then bring the ends back around to the lift arms. The chain will generally slip if you make just a simple loop.

I'd like to add that if you use a drawbar, wrap the chain close to one side rather than the middle. I've bent drawbars by pulling fenceposts if they have been cemented in.

When he said a metal post with bumps, I figured that he meant a T post and it probably would not be cemented in.

But, you can certainly bend a drawbar on cemented posts or the tree stump that I was talking about, so I would agree with you about keeping the chain to one side.

 metal fence post needed to be romoved.

We have to put in, and later remove a lot of t-bar for construction fencing.

We use a piece of chain and the utility bracket on the FEL usually, we first roll the curl mechanism as far back as it goes, then chain the t-bar up as close to ground as possible and up the back of the bracket to the top of it and secure it there, then with the FEL all the way down, start to roll the curl circuit open, as it passes top center and starts back down we put a scrap of timber in front of the bracket, this causes it to rise up on the wood and force the chain around the bracket and forwrds.

Since you are using the larger side of the cylinder to do this the force generated is maximized, and the timber means you either have to force the timber into the ground, or the t-bar out.

You could probably do the same thing with a regular bucket on a FEL by putting the bucket flat on the ground, and running the chain up over the back of the bucket and hooking it onto the cutting edge. I would be very careful doing it this way though, if the force got to great it could kink either the cutting edge or the back of the bucket.

Best of luck.

 metal fence post needed to be romoved.

Fence posts generally come out quite easily. The trouble I've found is the surprises that one runs into like when you didn't put the fence posts in yourself.

Like when you take out a whole row of them (like 50 or 100) and suddenly you find that a couple are cemented in like the end posts or when the fence had a T branch. I've also run into bolted crossbars at the bottom. These weren't driven in but dug and filled.

Having farm property that has been in the family for approximately 150 years, sometimes make me feel like I've been set-up by my relatives. (i.e. The nails in trees that totally ruin a chain saw blade and so on).

I removed dozens of these by wrapping a 1/4 to 3/8 inch rope around it 7 or 8 times, tie it, that attach the other end to you bucket (teeth if you've got them). Should be no trouble and no slippage.

If they have any cement on them, the 4110 probably won't do it, 3-pt or bucket. With a cement ball at the bottom, any root nest that grew above the cment ball makes removal pretty drarn tough. We pulled about 150 cemented posts last year with a 30 ton ram on a T-frame. We used a 2" cable clamp above the T-Frame and jacked them out of the ground. We tried a JCB 210, and it wouldn't touch them either. If they were concreted, it can take a lot of jacking depending on the soil and the amount of growth in the area, and how long they have been in the ground.

Tee posts are a different story. Tee post pullers are around $35 bucks in Northern Tool or Harbor Freight, or Agri-Supply. TSC may even carry them.

I recently removed some metal fence-posts w/ my 4310 & FEL. Looped a wire cable through the holes in the post, and when I applied uplift w/ the FEL the post snapped at the base. The next one came out concrete and all. A fence post in earth should come out with no problem at all, as long as you can grip the post w/ something. I agree w/ what Murf said... Id knock the post down to the ground, lower the fel on top of it, wrap your chain at the base of the post, then up around the back of the bucket. G'luck!
