Installing A No Dig Privacy Fence Crazy Fast!

today i'm going to be installing a six-foot privacy fence but not just any privacy fence this is going to be a no-dig privacy fence and the reason i'm able to do that is because today i have with me mark from swi fence mark tell us a little bit about yourself so i have a company my brother and i have a company out in wyoming we're swi fence and supply and soon to be st augustine florida as well we're gonna show adam how to build a fence without having to dig any holes which is what everybody wants to do because the holes are the absolute worst part so we're going to show you how to avoid that you came here from wyoming did you did you fly down or did you drive down i flew so are your arms tired yeah it's just beginning folks [Music] so what are these for so this is a spacing jig it's actually made by mr fence tools [Music] that'll help us get all your posts proportionally spaced so that we don't have any sections at the end that are you know two foot long or four foot long so that they're all exactly equal but yeah we don't exceed the eight foot maximum spacing for our rails whoops [Music] so this is the bottom okay this is the bottom because if you're going to set this in concrete your concrete would lock into these holes and we also don't have holes drilled all the way down so these holes are where we'll attach our rails now there's two different ways there is a lively debate anywhere you go on facebook or which way you're supposed to put these in the manufacturer has us running the two by fours here and that's with the way they're designed but you'll have a lot of people that put them on let's say our our good side was going to be this side and they'll have they'll run the two by fours on this face rather than this face which leaves the post exposed and so you can see the post the reason they're doing that is because they can screw their rails on run their rails long and then just come with the skill saw and run right up this channel and chop them off without having to do any measuring when we turn the post this way if this is going to be our privacy side we have to measure precisely we want to make sure that all the rails fit precisely inside this channel but the nice thing is on the back side we can cover that up with the picket and never see that post i don't know if you told us or not these are called postmaster posts right now these are postmaster posts from master helico we sell a ton of these we ship them all over the country believe it or not i mean these things are like major heavy duty yeah these are nice and they're they're engineered for wind and that's why we use them in wyoming is because if you've ever been out there on i-80 in the winter time you know what kind of wind we get it just blows so we're going to drive these into the ground that's correct and how are we going to do okay wait don't don't tell me how we're going to do that hold up hold up hold it ladder and a hammer huh uh no i like the bucket it's orange it's definitely safety rated that means it's social approved but we're gonna have to do better than the hammer okay hold on sledgehammer sledgehammer right we're getting warmer clearly you haven't watched the channel enough i don't like to work that hard we've got to do better mega heavy duty post pounder yes no this is what we'll use for this project we're going to be using the rhino xpd oh hang on the rhino okay we're going to be using the rhino multi-pro xa which stands for extended anvil and this is the only pounder that rhino makes that will drive the postmaster post do you have any gas uh well not till usually like an hour after lunch or so no gas oh gasoline yeah [Music] [Music] [Music] i've got the cardboard here and the reason that we're putting cardboard i want to be just a little bit off these posts that way i don't need to be right up against the string line with all the next posts because what can happen is the post can move just a little bit one way or another and we'll make sure the tops are in line which is what your eye is going to see but if the bottom's out just a little bit it's not that big a deal and what i don't want to have happen is for every post to just slightly push the string then all of a sudden we have a big curve or at the end of the string we're off by two inches because each one of them pushed it just a little bit so if we just set our posts up about a quarter of an inch off the string the whole time we'll be in good shape cool you just went down this whole line made sure that it was what six inches in transition six inches above the ground basically six to eight inches above the ground what we're looking for is about a two inch above height that gives you a little room to weed eat underneath or something like that or put your mulch down so we've set the string anywhere from six to eight inches above grade with a nice transition right down there where it's kind of they got that low spot and then he's going to mark all these posts at 60 inches high which should leave us a minimum of five foot six out of the ground which is what we want okay [Applause] you say win yeah go drive like stole it so [Music] there's the first three [Music] so can we talk privately here for just a second even though this is adam's channel and talk about how the hacks man like hacked it up totally i don't know if it was him or the other guy but sometimes you let the monkeys run the zoo things like this happen this is the bottom because if you're going to set this in concrete your concrete would lock into these holes now we can recover because one of our sayings is we identify we adapt and we overcome so what we're going to do is just drill a couple holes in here this is not going to be a big deal we'll face this over you'll never see it it'll all be okay i shouldn't be ahead of these guys i'm ahead of them cutting all the boards and packing them so i'm the pack meal all they got to do is screw them into place after i pack them over and they're running way behind i got i got the bit so that i can go ahead and drill out where you put this post in upside down don't even we'll go ahead and drill this out and fix this be sure to cut this out when when we edit the video though we've already talked about this you were not here oh well i'm gone we don't want to make the pro look bad unfortunately i'm not the one editing the video in my drill video people were like you stupid idiot you didn't tighten the chuck right okay so i'm gonna tighten it i'm tightening it by hand and then i'm gonna do one reverse now my my chuck is locked i don't wanna hear anything [Applause] look at there it stayed yeah we're building things here in georgia we're showing people how you don't dig holes to build cedar pits one thing that makes this go a little bit quicker is that can you see these marks see how there's a marks every so often on these postmaster posts and so i can come down here and i can get that mark right there and i'll have to do is line that up on
