Answer: 
Most fencing needs posts every 8' (14 posts) but depending on the snow amount might want to go every 4' (26 posts) but would not recommend these posts for that. These are NOT Heavy Duty as advertised.

Answer: 
13 posts for 100 feet. If you are running a straight snow fence, I would place the posts about 8 feet apart. Divide 100 by 8, and round up to 13 for your answer. 12 posts will support 96 feet; 13 posts will support 104 feet. With 100 feet of fence, the last post would then be 4' from the end. Better to go with one more than not enough to make sure the fence is strong enough.

I am putting up 330 feet of 4' wire fence and was trying to figure out how far apart the post should be? This is just for keeping the golden retriever in and other animals out. Is there a recommended guideline?

Answer: 
Normal Fence spacing is 8' but as FENCING is not PERMANENT there is no actual stipulation on this. Really depends on the usage/material of the fence. For a Golden Retriever I would recommend a 5' fence and posts every 6' as they tend to stand up on the fence and are usually quite good jumpers.
These posts would not be recommended for a fence for a dog of this size.

Answer: 
I would say place the posts 8' apart. This is just our experience. For our labs, we have set fenceposts in at about 8' apart. We used 16 foot wire panels (about $20 apiece), and the panels are 48" tall. The labs do not try to jump the fence, but will place their front paws on it while standing on their hind legs, without causing any issues with the fencing.

We also use them as posts for putting up banners by the roadside; the banner is gone long before the post is. We use them with the orange fencing as a deer deterrant around the garden and it does keep them out though they could jump over. If you can get 'em up after they've rusted a bit into the ground, they are reusable for many many years. Read Less

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good qualify with decent price. Pretty heavy and strong. Wish this product has sharp edge, so it would be a lot easier for me to install. It was pretty tough for me to get it into the ground. I had to dig a hole and pour cement to get it steady. June 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by best fence posts ever this is a great deal on a nice sturdy fence post!! August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gooc study fence post These should last for years. I'm glad to see that they come in longer lengths, too. I might go back and get some of those. They are much better than the standard u-posts that I've used for so many years in the garden and they are not much more expensive. July 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great T Posts for Tomato Cages I bought these heavy duty t posts to secure tomato cages in my garden. They are very sturdy, and at the right height for 4’ tomato cages. There were a few posts with bent or missing base plates, but they still work fine as long as they are sunk into the ground far enough. I also loved that they were delivered free, with minimum purchase, which is very convenient since I don’t have to load into my truck at the store! Thanks! May 24, 2016
