FENCING Awards 2021 Finalist - Wilbertree Road by PH Fencing

FENCING Awards 2021 Finalist - Wilbertree Road by PH Fencing

Wilbertree Road by PH Fencing in Mudgee, NSW.

PH Fencing gave Australian Fencing Awards some key information on their Wilbertree Road project.

Challenges involved in the project

  • The challenge was three fold on this job.
  • Addressing underground rock while driving strainer posts and digging holes for stays was the first.
  • The second one was more internal. Paul challenged himself to build a fencing trailer that could cope with running out the required 3 barbs in one run and could accommodate two spinners for the remaining 4 wires required.
  • A small workforce of just Paul and Trish (part time) has been the driving factor behind making what we do as efficient as possible.
  • The third challenge was the weather... #$%^ cold, windy and just plain miserable for 4 of the 5 days!

Products used on the project

  • Waratah wire & star posts was used for this job. We used their Black 165cm Star Posts, Long Life Blue 2mm Barb and Long Life Blue Tyeasy High Tension Plain wire along the fence line.
  • We used 100nb Gal 2.4m Pipe with Caps for strainers and intermediates and 40nb gal Med Wall 3.6m pipe for stays welded to a 800mm section of 100nb section with cap as a staypipe. 2.5mm Long life Tie wire was cut into 240mm sections to tie on the barb.

Outcome of the project

  • We erected 940 metres of 3 barb & 4 plain wire fence including 10 posts and 2 stays in 5 days ( Trish only working two of those days).
  • The new fencing trailer Paul built worked a treat and made the hard yards easier. The fence looked awesome, straight and practical and made to last.

This project by PH Fencing is a finalist in the Australian FENCING Awards 2021.
