@Lincs Lass how do you manage stuff like that fence erection on your own, or have you taken on an apprentice?
Certainly not super human and no apprentice ,,I just have a mind set of no pain ,no gain ,,once I get going im like the duracell bunny ,,if I stop the momentum ,I soon start to ache and then I cant get back in the flow .
Ive been like it all my life ..

I do have a system which works ,Get the starting point straight and level and keep assembling each section as you go on ,,that way every post is square

Ram needed new seals thought it might take a few days to get them so made a quick bar to keep the destoner mobile and safe.

Getting it apart required some heat and the big stilsons. And found we did have a spare set of seals hid away. Quick paint job and it was good to go.

Love seeing these sort of skills rather than just buying new bits every time.

Very tidy , Were did you get the concrete post & all the pannals from ?, what kind of cost is a fence like that ?
Panels are from local supplier @£52 each ,posts and gravel boards from Jewsons ,,£14.50 for the posts,£10 for the gravel board and another £10 for 2 bags of postcrete, all inc vat.
The posts are 5inch x4inch heavy duty ,you can get 4x4 but not as strong.
