chain link fence post removal
 
I need to remove the metal posts to make way for my new cedar fence.
All I want to do is cut the existing metal posts even with the ground. Can i use my Sawzall with a special metal cutting blade? or should i buy a portable metal grinder? any thoughts?

thanks!

How many posts do you need to cut?
A sawzall will work.
You may need a few blades depending on how many posts that you have to cut.

I think a sawzall would be easier than a grinder for that job. You'll need long metal-cutting blades. Get a handful of blades to keep the job moving along.

Don't forget, the new fence will have to be moved a little to allow for the old concrete footings. Dont plan on any grass growing where the old footings are.
