If you're in marshy soil, you can push them in with your loader. If the ground is little harder, tap them in with the loader. We do it all day in South Louisiana.New member, & First Post. I’ve searched the forums, but it seems like I’ll need some time looking around before I know where to look. I’m looking to put in a couple hundred wooden fence posts, and am not interested in pounding them in by hand (I know, I’m lazy) , and feel that an auger is probably more then I need. What about a bale spear or a hollow piece of well casing pipe fastened to the FEL , would the down pressure of the loader (maybe some ballast weight in the bucket) be enough to push the spike or casing into the ground so I could then push a sharpened wooden post in?
Thanks in advance, and don’t worry about hurting my feelings…. I’m a total newbie to farming
