Problem: Wife and I have purchased property that has an old-style fence along the property line. We want to remove it. It is 48’ high chain link spread over a wooden frame of horizontal 2”x4”s and vertical 4”x4”s. The vertical pieces are not set in concrete (I hope).
Question: Is there a practical way of removing these 4”x4”s? I am a senior and cannot just jerk them out of the ground the way I have seen my son do.
I have done this by using a level and fulcrum. Use mechanical advantage! I had good luck drilling holes in the posts and hooking a chain to them and using the lever to hook the chain when pulling upward. It was still back-breaking work though!
