Anyone who’s torn down a fence knows that the biggest headache by far is pulling up the old posts. The problem with fence post demolition is that when installed properly, those posts are meant to withstand exactly the kind of side-to-side force you put on them to loosen them up. Add to that any code requirements to accommodate the frost line, and you may have three feet of post and concrete below ground.
