Hi guys what’s the best fencing to use around engine events, We normally have used ringlock but after time it gets bent down , suggestions from members to use the heavy duty plastic fencing what’s your thoughts ?

We have only ever used the plastic fencing zip tied to start picks. Easy to put up n take down and store.
Biggest tip is DO NOT put your star picks pointy end down into the 44 gallon drums for storage. You do find out that they put holes in your water storage drums for the engine compounds. We have a few drums that cannot be used for water now.

Going good thanks, no new engine projects, just tiding up a few bits and pieces and sorting out a few tractors inbetween, cheers, Chester.

Re: Engine display

Our club uses portable sheep yard gates for the main engine compound and any displays we do outside of the club grounds. easy to set up and take down and do not require start droppers. at the end of the day when everyone wants to pack up in a hurry it is easy to open up everyone can gain easy access.

We made up a custom four wheel trolley to move them around our venue and when we take them off site we usually only need about 10 which easily fit on someones ute or trailer.
