NicTheOrange90 Posted February 3, 2008 Share Posted February 3, 2008 the current Mrs W informed me that she had found a new field to put her horses in as the current farmer was being a pain and increasing the rent all the time. I said I pitied the poor person who was going to take out the 6ft fence posts we put in last summer (about 60 of them) and she just smiled sweetly at me !!! Aah thought I, this sounds like a job for the winch on my 90, but how to convert its horizontal pull into a vertical one, I fabricated an A frame from two scaffold poles, a crowbar and a towing drop plate. The crowbar was the largest diameter metal I could get on a Saturday morning before work (B&Q, a tenner) and it was a little loose in the bumper jacking tubes, but did the job, two 7ft scaffold poles and a large 1/2" thick towing drop plate allowed the winch to pull vertically. I put a strap from the rear NATO hook, over the roof to secure the top of the A frame. The pull would bring the 90 to its front bumpr stops and then the vehicle springs would pull the post out ! 60 posts removed , 40 mins ! Took these pictures on phone, you can see the front springs compressed ! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
