    I am putting up a acre of high tensile wire with creosote posts with a solar powered hot box I was wondering can the fencing and stuff be tore down in a cuple years if I move and reused?

    Yes. For the creosote posts, though, you'll need to really check them for rot and/or bug damage after you pull them up before re-using them.

    As for the high tensile wire, I strongly suggest you either keep the spool it came on or find a spool to coil it up on. Dealing with any kind of wire just free and trying to coil it by hand is a pain in the butt.

    ^^^ I agree, but for an acre, it's probably going to be a lot more headache than it is worth.

    Ahhhh...if you're paying to have it done, then I agree! I'm just used to everything around here being done by "arm strong" These days labor is about 2/3 the cost around here.

    Youd be paying to have it pulled and reinstalled as well. Not worth it.

    And then all the holes from the creosote posts have to be WELL filled in... While it could be done, it'd be a royal pain.

    Wow nothing a truck bed full dirt and a shovel can't do

    Yup, very true. If you're game, then give 'er! I've done lots of stuff like that myself.
