Similarly, it is asked, how does a fence strainer work?
When straining up prefabricated fences it is wise to use a multiwire strainer. This grips all the wires in the roll simultaneously ensuring an even tension. The strainer is fitted to the wire a few metres before the second strainer and tension applied. This can be carried out with a tractor or four-wheel-drive.
How deep should a strainer post be?
We recommend 80NB (89mm O.D) or 100NB (114mm O.D) strainer posts. A commonly held belief is that the greater the diameter of the post, the greater hold it will have in the ground. This isn't accurate. The depth of the post and the way it's installed are far more important.
