    Mike, I do still have the literature, but it doesn't have prices. The letter they sent with it included the name, address, and phone number of the nearest dealer. And I don't remember what the price was; just that when I called and they quoted a price, it was high enough to make me go instantly deaf and my mind go blank.[img]/w3tcompact/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    Mike, Dank found the information; $2,675.40 for the Danuser MD6, PTO powered post driver. I think that's about the same as the price I got from a local dealer.

    Me, too, Mike; gotta build a lot of fence to pay for one of those.

    I believe everyone's recommendation that driving the posts is the way to go, but paying a $1,100 premium over a PHD ($1,800 WorkSaver vs $700 LandPride) is a tall hurdle for me. The driver can only drive posts/stakes whereas a PHD could be used for other things. Decisions, decisions.

    My next step is to see if I can find someone to drive the posts in for me then I will put the rails up.

    I just bought the Worksaver 16. Here's some things I learned making my choice: Shaver is the classic model that everyone around me seems to use. Worksaver is a knock off, though in some folk's opinion a better product. It's less expensive, plus it comes with legs and the special return hose (unlike Shaver I believe). The Danuser is pricey, and note that you adjust the fore and aft with the toplink, as opposed to the Worksaver, which has fore/aft and right/left adjusters built in. The Danuser PTO-driven model would certainly make life simpler. I had to make serveral trips to the store and spent a lot of time screwing around getting my hydraulic driver working correctly.

    You can get the Worksaver 16 for around 1,800 if you look around. If like me you need to get a diverter valve, figure on spending another $100-$200 including all the fittings you will need.

    Think twice about how valuable your time is if you are thinking about going with an auger -- setting posts by tamping takes a really long time in order to do a good job.

    Every time I think twice, the first thought is what implement I need to buy. The second thought is prompted by my wallet tapping me on my shoulder. There's an inverse relationship between money and work & time. As work & time decrease usually the money leaving your wallet goes up.

    Decreasing Time and Increasing Costs
    1. Dig post holes by hand with a shovel.
    2. Dig holes with a hand PHD.
    3. Dig holes with a tractor PHD.
    4. Set posts with a driver.
    5. Hire someone to set the posts.
    6. Hire someone to install the fence.

    It's all where you fall on the Work/Time/Money line.

    Someone said they struck a compromise by using a PHD to drill a 4" hole and then used the FEL to set a 4" x 6" post.

    What do all of you think about that solution?
