Drilling and setting the poles ... If you have access to a mini excavator it makes it a breeze... To drill and to set. All with a joystick

Using the load all made it a snap for putting the wire up.. we took a 300 gallon Polly tote that had a cage on it and removed the tank.. cut a side out for a door and used that on the skid forks..

Been very rainy the last week or two. had not been able to get the load all in with the basket get to the top of the wire to tie strings.. Had to use the truck in 4 wheel drive with the latter. Which works pretty well. I could lay 50 strings at a time on the latter and just tie 2 at a time for both runs.. and keep another 50 in the bed for reload.. more pics to follow..
