Wood to concrete adhesive

I need to fix some upright timber batons to existing concrete fence posts, I've used screws and plugs in the past but sometimes it's hard to drill the concrete.

Does anyone have any recommendations for an adhesive that would do the job ?

    CT1, there is a 9" hollow H block stuck up on a wall at a builders merchants locally, just with CT1. It's been up there years. I use it rather than anything else nowadays.

  • Concrete screws and a decent drill or impact driver.

  • Reckon you just need a decent drill.   Make sure you're using an SDS type drill and it'll go through concrete with no problems............. I've drilled 10mm holes through concrete fenceposts like a knife goes through butter.    I'd never want to rely on adhesive when used outdoors.

    You're probably hitting the rebar in the posts. CT1 would be best if you want an adhesive. However fixings would be better.

    • Shouldn't be a problem if you go through the middle.......... they're usually just reinforced with 4 rods round the perimeter.

    Thanks everyone !

    i think I'm going to carry on drilling and fixing, hopefully missing the rebar.
