We put 2.4m Woodshield posts in our new Cabernet block north of Clare in 2011. The contractor loved it. No creo smell or burn. He noted they also drove in very well.
It costs us up to $30 to replace a post. Times that by just ten/ha per year it adds up very quickly. Much better off not having to replace any posts at all I say.
Staples were easy to apply and won’t come out because of a split post. They are nice on the eye too. We have had heaps of good comments about the aesthetics of the new block.
There’s not many things you can buy that will last a lifetime. Good one Woodshield.
