Pipe Fence Removal


We're considering purchasing some property that has considerable amounts of pipe fence, to include animal pens and a hodge-podge of perimeter fence. While we want to maintain some of it, a lot of it looks junky and we want to get rid of what we won't use. We have some experience in removing steel fence posts, but not this extensive.

My question: What is the best way to remove welded pipe fence? At this point I'm not sure if the posts are anchored in concrete or not.

Should we have a professional remove it? Not sure how much that would cost.

Can we do it ourselves with the right rental equipment?

Any advice would be greatful.

The bobcat idea would be the fastest and easiest. Also check out renting a walk behind unit such as a dingo using slings to pull out the posts.

Pipe Fence Removal


I only had 9 posts to pull out
Some came out just by moving back & forth
Some the concrete came apart with 1 shot from a sledge hammer
One was a lot of concrete & was a PIA
By the pool area, no room for a bobcat...not that I would have rented one for 1 post

Depends upon your soil, if in concrete & how much
