What blades do you use? I found the harbor freight ones are junk (of course) and so are whatever brand lowes sells. Dewalt and milwakee seem to be about equal life and it doesn't  seem worth it to go to the thicker, higher dollar Dewalt blade because I don't think I get enough more cuts to pay for it.

Fourney seem to be the longest lasting...I'm comparing that with the dewalt blade for half the price to see if it last twice as long I do think the dewalt cut faster tho so that may make up my mind...

I like Sait branded blades. They seem to last much longer than Dewalt for me anyhow.  I'm normally cutting something much heavier than I should be and can be hard on blades.

The local Air Gas welding shop carries them and I like them 10x over a dewalt blade.

That's what most of the fences look like around here....  The pasture around my house is still hedge wood posts and hand dug holes. Some of the posts have worn out a couple holes :)  It is in need of repair but the cattle are Dad's hobby and he is content. Brother just finished a good stretch of horse fence for his wife's horses. I don't think hedge posts are good enough for a horse.  I will sick to horsepower because it is a little easier to contain when you aren't using it. Lol
