I've got a couple of T Fence Posts I want to remove and the wiggle method is
not doing it for me. I tried to jack them out, but the nubs are not square
enough to keep the jack in place.
I've read elsewhere about removing wood posts with a chain and a jack, but
I'm a little vaque as to what holds the chain on the post and why it digs
into the wood. Would a chain work with my T Posts? Plan B was to drill a
hole and insert a rod and jack against that.
Thanks, just trying to get some use out my new toy (Hi-Lift jack) that I
bought to get the retaining wall out. It sorta worked for this, but only two
rebar at a time. Otherwise the jack would bend the 4x4 (2 high) and make the
other rebar bind in the ground further down the line. So I had to slice it
into bite size chunks to jack it out.
If its a wood post you are lifting, why wouldn't you just drive a couple of
heavy nails in each side with an inch or so exposed. With a metal post, all you
need to do is wrap a chain or rope rightly around the post three or four times
and use the jack to lift the rope/chain up. The process is the same for both.
