    Default Hydraulic Post Drivers

    Can anyone provide some information on tractor mounted hydraulic post drivers? What brand is best? How well do they work? What is the price range? What type of mount is the best, 3-point hitch, mounted on front of tractor to frame or FEL mounted?

    I can't be much of a help here other than the fact that my neighbor behind me has one (the brand eludes me), but he swears by it over a post hole digger.

    He inserts a cedar post into this contraption and it pounds it into the ground. It's fairly loud as it hammers these posts, but when he is done, he is done. No need to back fill the posts, or set them in concrete, etc.

    He puts in many many cedar posts for his different fenced areas for his horses which he boards.

    Bulldogger, try http://www.danuser.com for a fine piece of equipment, but out of my price range.

    Bulldogger,

    I researched the various brands, including the Danuser model, but I chose the Worksaver post driver for its cost and the recommendations of several farmers in the area.

    I have put up about 400 posts since April, and I love the machine.

    It is a 3 pt. hitch model, with manual adjustments for level. You can look to pay about $1900 - $2200 for one such as mine.

    Check out Kencove.com for the 800 number, call them and ask for Charlie.

    Good luck.

    hess

    Don't have any real life experience however, I'm still just a voyeur when it comes to tractors!

    Munro makes a nice one but it's not cheap. It's a auger & post driver combined.

    Richard,

    I bought the 8' Worksaver (I think it was HD-8), with manual adjustment for level.
