Life sure is tough when you don't learn from the mistakes of others.

Like them pogos.

Cut em and go.

Hook another on and reset.

That's what I do too.

We pull them, actually. Don't figure farmers would like them left behind in their fields too much.

No our ground is hard baked red clay, about like concrete, lol. If you're bending washers your soil must be real rocky. Large rocks are about the only thing I've found that you can't drive pogos through. Sometimes the ground is so hard that each swing of the hammer only drives it in like a quarter of an inch and I'm cussing and sweating by the time I get it in, lol.

What size washers did you use? I've noticed the 2" ones bend way easier than the 1.5" ones do.

Did that for years until my arms about fell off. Drill a half in hole first and you'll be wishing you could get all those quarter inch swings back. Most of my holes I can push it in by hand, then quarter twist and out.
