the weld formed is only from the fusion
of the steel rods, which preserves the weld
strength, and protects the welds and wires
completely," Lanzillo says. "The additional
protection offered by an engineered PVC
coating serves to further increase the performance of mesh wire intended for extremely
harsh environments."
Riverdale has extensive experience in formulating phthalate-free PVC compounds,
she adds, and uses bio-based PVC formulas
for many of its agriculture products to protect animals in the outside chance they are
able to gnaw off bits of the fence coating.
Riverdale Mills recently worked with
the Worcester County Reserve Deputy
Sheriffs Association and the directors of
the Worcester County Jail and House of
Correction to protect its 14-acre organic
farm when the crops were being ravaged by
deer and other wildlife.
"Riverdale donated deer wire to protect the
perimeter of the farm, which provides over
20,000 pounds of food annually to inmates,
local soup kitchens, food pantries, senior
centers and veterans groups," Lanzillo says.

"Fence maintenance is extremely important when live
animals are involved," says Jeff Koloski. "The weather,
predators, as well as the animals themselves can take a
toll on fencing over the years."
While most farmers and ranchers use
tractors and skid-steers for large fence
installs, towable and hitch-mounted hydraulic earth drills provide multiple benefits
over larger tools typically found on farms
and ranches, says Mike Hale, sales and
marketing manager at Little Beaver Inc. in
Livingston, Texas.
"Their compact size allows these drills to
access tight or limited access areas," Hale
says. "For example, skid-steers and tractors
are too large to fit through a tight gate or in
between two structures. Additionally, the
drill's weight is balanced over pneumatic or
semi-pneumatic wheels, allowing operators
to easily push the rig to the next hole and
pivot into drilling position."

Moreover, the drills can be easily transported to and from a jobsite, he says. By
nature, towable and hitch-mounted drills
are easy to move, with either a hitch and
pneumatic tires for towing or a hitch mount
bracket that acts as a carrier for the drill.
Both systems require very little operator
effort and eliminate the need to lift the drill
on and off the back of a pickup truck.
"Towable and hitch-mounted drills, like
Little Beaver's Towable and UN-Towable, are
designed to lessen the toll on workers' bodies
while making operation safe, simple and efficient," Hale says. "For farmers and ranchers
looking to access tight spaces to drill post
holes, these easily maneuverable, yet powerful
drills provide a simple solution." ■
