DIY Fence Repair With The Wood Post Puller: Remove & Replace Fence Posts Set In Concrete Footings




What do you think about this video?

Jo Hutch: I pull these up with my bare hands without water. 

Kathy F: How to you get the spike into North Texas clay?

Sawyer Ventures: The wiggle is important to help the water move along the concrete and form the mud layer. Broken posts make it more difficult, but there are several techniques that work: 1) use the pry bars to pry sideways 2) pound a pry bar vertically into the broken stump 3) use a sledge hammer to knock the footing from the sides Even a vibration can be enough for the water to percolate. For the most difficult footings, continue to insert the spike around the perimeter to 'cut' the footing out of the ground.

Sawyer Ventures: The water coming out of the spike automatically relieves the suction. Another option is to leave the spike tool fully inserted into the ground next to the post and concrete but disconnect the water when prying on the post - the spike provides an open pathway for air to the bottom of the post.

Larry 'Flash' Alexander: Love the music. What would your method be when the post is broken off at the top of the footing and there is nothing to wiggle?

Sawyer Ventures: The water coming from the end of the spike tool will loosen the soil in front of the spike - short up-and-down jackhammer motions will usually get the spike inserted.

Tim Adams: Thanks for the video.. Doesn't the water create a suction cup effect?
