Here I list some basic tools used in fence building. Other than #1 below, these are tools people commonly have on hand:
Tools for Fence Building:
- Post-hole auger or post-hole digger
- Shovel and wheelbarrow for mixing concrete
- Power saw
- Hammer, punch
- Carpenter's square, level, mason's line
Post-hole augers minimize the effort you'll have to expend on digging the holes. Unless you have a lot of time, these power tools are almost indispensable if you're installing a long fence across rocky terrain. Post-hole augers can often be rented from your local rental store.
Post-hole diggers are manual tools for fence building. Learn how to use post-hole diggers in this video tutorial. Post-hole diggers can be bought at many large hardware stores.
