Attach the Wire
Unroll the wire fencing adjacent to
the posts. Start by attaching wire on the uphill side.
Stretch this down the entire length of the roll.
Using several of your friends, lift
the wire into place, against the posts. Pull the wire as taught
as possible. For a professional job, a fence puller will allow
you to add tension using a come-along pulley. The other trick
is to rope the wire to your bumper of your trick, but be careful!
The next section of wire is added by
"stitching" the ends together. Wrap the ends tightly
and snip off loose ends to avoid damage to the livestock.
While the staple gun allows for
quick installation, follow up using larger 1-inch heavy staples and
hand nail these every 8-12 inches.
To run the air compressor for the
staple gun, you will probably need to have a
portable generator. Make sure that there is sufficient wattage
to run your tools. Use at least 2,500 watt, preferably 4,000
or 5,000 watts. This will be needed to power your saw, drill
and air compressor for the staple gun.
