    Default Danuser Post driver

    Saturday I tried out my, new to me, Danuser post driver. My father-in-law called and wanted me to help put in some posts around his bale pen. It works great even in our rocky soil. I donít think that I will be using my post auger very much any more.

    Jerry,
    You will love it. I don't have that brand but a worksaver. Absolutely it is one of the best implements that I have.

    Richard,
    I think that you will be right. It will cut down on a lot of work. I had wanted one for quite a while. I found a used one that had not been used very much for about half of what a new one would run.

    You will love it. My neighbor bought the driver and I bought the auger, both Danuser. We trade off. Changes the way that you look at fencing. Especially the question of how can I get the tractor in there. Good luck!

    How rocky is your soil? Have you hit any big rocks? I am looking at fencing about 10 acres in very rocky soil in the Texas hill country. The rocks are not very hard, but they're still rocks. So, I'm looking at either trying to drive them in the ground, or renting a bell-tec and drilling every hole. I would prefer driving them in.

    I glad you asked that question. I probably live 10 miles from you in Hays County, Texas and need to cross fence 45 acres. I could put a hydraulic auger on my bucket for about the same cost as a worksaver 16. I'd prefer the post driver, but worry if the driver would drive 2 7/8 pipe in rocky hill country soil. I'd really be interested if anyone has used them in this area.

    DavidH, bbearden
    My soil is very rocky it consists mostly of flint rock (the size of a manís head and smaller) and red clay. The driver does a good job putting the 4-6Ē posts in. I havenít put in any steel posts or pipe yet, but I have watched two different people in my area put them in. They seem to go in in about half the time that the wood ones do. In other words, really fast.
    I did hit one rock that was larger than the post in diameter. I had to pull the post back out. When I looked at the bottom of the post, you could see that the whole bottom of the post had been contacting the rock

    Do the posts have tapered bottoms like a pencil point or can you drive them squared off?
