  4. Ok...so I have a post about 4.5ft in the ground. My neighbor poisoned my dog, so before I put another dog on it, I'd like to move it...without digging a grave to get it out. Any suggestions? Is it possible? I'm not thinking it is...just hoping. Lol

    Yea u can dig it out...take a little work but that shouldnt be a problem...I would suggest a proper chain setup though.
  6. Well, my setup that will be moved will be driven all the way into the ground with a chain welded to it and then his chain hooked to that with a lap link. That's what the old men I know do. Lol

    I see what your saying now I had something else I was seeing in my mind..I gotcha.
  8. Digging it up is going to be a pain in the butt. It's mostly clay out here. Maybe I'll just find a way to get it even deeper and buy a new pole, etc. Lol

    Nah u just got to work it ..Hit it from side to side with a hammer and get it half way loose and hook a choker to your truck bumper and pull it up...may slide off a couple times so just hit it side to side with a sledge hammer ..rehook the choker and give it another yank...you will get it eventually lol...but yea u could cut the top off and dig out around the top and hammer it down deeper and just bury it.

    Keep it simple, use a light, high-quality chain rapped around a car axle that has been driven underground and buried. Secure all hardware with cold shuts. Attached to a high quality collar with double o-rings. Use a heavy-duty swivel to prevent the chain from knotting up and getting tangled. Do all this and you have done everything in you power to prevent your dog from getting loose.
  11. Well, I'm gonna try to get the stupid thing out again and if that doesn't work, I'm burying it! Lol

    U need a chain and a handy man ( high lift) jack. Go around post then over and back under chain doubling back to the start point. This will help chain grip. Hook the lip of handy man in chain and start jacking. Word to the wise do not put ur head over handle while u jack. Good way to get hurt.

  13. Lol. Thanks!

    That is a nice yard, you can see links to Cardena's, STP, Patrick and various other yards when you go there.

    I like cable runs with pulleys.i put several pulleys on cable so I can swap to a new pulley quickly. tractor supply has then. some times u can
    get just parts to repair, not expensive, I keep pulleys off the ground so they don't drag.

    i have never had that problem with one particular link wearing out. i have heavy red clay soil & the chain will start
    geting thiner & thiner over time. i replace the 5/16 chain & use the worn down chain on younger dogs for several months.
    i use heavy weight chain. i found some at a place that is 3/8 but rated same as normal 1/2 in chain. it s DOT approved for trainer safety chains.
    3/8 is as big as i have ever used.

    what is the advatage to burry the axle? i drive mine into the ground with a sledge hammer. i have used 2" ganvanized pipe with a 2x2" plate
    welded on top. works as good as an axle & lasts long time. have not had a failure so far. axles are little to find as time goes on with most cars front wheel drive.
    truck axles are still easy to get.
