These two posts will become not only strainer posts but gate posts in front of the Tone River.

Can you imagine how difficult it would have been to get these former power poles – returned to a useful life as strainer posts in the ground without the post rammer.  Jorn actually made it many many years ago when he was farming in Donnybrook. Although now he needs to borrow it from his good mate David Lee as he sold it to him a few years ago.

Sometimes even with the post rammer they will not go – granite below…… we have a few sad looking bent poles around that we will cut out soon. More ramming as after the big rammer comes little rammer! Both terrific machines that make lighter work of a big job.
