RAMM's CCA (Copper Cronium Arsenic) pressure-treated red pine posts have a .40 retention level, meaning they carry a manufacturer's limited warranty for 30 years underground. However, wetlands and other areas with high moisture content will impact the life of your posts. For added longevity, cutting the tops of the posts at a slight angle allows for rain runoff. These posts are either 8’ or 9’ long and can be found in 4”, 5” (line posts) and 6” diameters (corners, ends, and gates). If you're fencing a smaller area, bigger posts are recommended; there's a greater chance for your horses to contact them.

Pressure-treated posts are not required to be painted but should be completely dry prior to painting if you choose to do so. If your posts are not dry, adhesion can be corrupted, thus allowing the paint to peel or even turn yellowish if using white paint. Any posts used for corners, ends, and gates or posts that aren't in a straight line need to be concreted into the ground.

Shipping: These posts are available for pickup or can be shipped in large quantities via a flatbed truck. Please ask your RAMM representative for a shipping quote when you call for pricing at 1-800-434-6296. FOB Swanton, OH. *Truckload pricing is available.*

 

Terminology

  • Checking – It's natural for fence posts to have cracks, which is referred to as "checking".
  • Heart – The heart is the middle of the post and if treated-properly, it should be insect-resistant and can last for many years.
  • Retention Level – The underground life expectancy of the post, based on the CCA treatment.
