  1. Hi Anyone used these wee chippers? Look great, too good to be true? I realise its not an industrial beast but looks great for throwing in the trailer for small domestic jobs. Ta
  2. Thats not been my experience of larch, i did lots of stock and deer fencing that all stood for at least 15 years in the Scottish highlands. Most of the ground was well drained upland rocky soil , murder for getting strainers dug in and keyed up!
  3. Untreated larch. Have you looked at CCA treated posts, not sure the cost etc but they were reckoned to last 15 years (the same as untreated larch is meant too). The big draw backs are its full of chemicals and the posts ar not as tough as a larch post when chaping it it.
  4. I used to build stock and deer fences in the Highlands of Scotland in the early nineties using larch 3x3 posts and larch strainers and they were still good 17 years later last time I saw them.
