    It’s not even my fence! I get to fix my neighbor’s! Soft conditions due to rain and an unsteady base! 😬

    Ouch! You just found the reason why I hate these cheap, metal wood racks. They fall over or apart, and usually it is which ever is worse. Sorry to see this.

    After this happened to me, years ago, I decided wood or polypallets are the way to go. It keeps the wood off the ground. I drive T-posts into the ground on the end of the pallets. Those don't anywhere and they hold the stack tight and upright. Plus, you can stack at least two rows of wood on the pallets and have room to spare. (Assuming you use standard, 4x4x4 pallets.)

    Also, tell your neighbor to get a real fence.

    Best of luck with the clean up man.

      Back breaking cleanup! But, it’s done! I could blame the cheap rack, but I’m going to blame myself for this one. Not a totally stable base. At least that’s what I’m going with until this one falls over again! I put it in a different part of the yard whereby it can’t do any more damage!

      It seems he goes through one gasser per year. He just buys and dumps annually. I hardly see him use it anyway.

    Scott ... it may be too late but if you set a paver down for each leg of your rack to rest on, you'll pretty much eliminate the chances of it tipping over due to soft soil conditions.

      I actually did do this. There was a retaining wall I wanted all along to get rid of. So, I got a few of those paver bricks and put it under. Feels stable enough so far! I’m hoping it won’t tip again! I worked like a dog today! I’m exhausted!

      Yep! If it tips, it’ll just fall into my yard, not my neighbor’s yard through a fence! They were nice about it though! Thank goodness!

    If only the base plate cracked (or even if a few panels did), I had to repair mine last year after the wife paid some teen to do my yard while I was deployed. Young dude killed my fence with the weed whacker.

    Fix is surprisingly simple.

    1. Spray foam (for cracked panels), sand down. If no missing pieces or puncture holes skip to next step
    2. Sandable Bondo, yep! Put it on the damaged areas over the spray foam and skim it as close as you can get it. Sand the next day
    3. They make a perfect match spray paint for the 3 most popular vinyl colors

    You have to look VERY close to see where I made the repairs around the house. It was so effective I even patched up some of our vinyl siding too.

      ItsAllGoneToTheDogs there’s no spray foaming this! But, besides, I’d maybe try it with my own fence, but this is my neighbor’s who wouldn’t want a patch job! Can’t blame them!

        I think you could still fix that, but I agree as a neighbor that's a bit much for a patch job The next problem will be the pieces slide into the post instead of metal brackets, might be a bit of effort to get the new base slat in place. Hope it's easier than it looks

      The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

      the good one grill
      The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

      Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

      Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
      The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

      The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

      Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
