    not for rocky ground

    Posted by troy andrrson on 16th Aug 2016

    Unit works nice in soft soils, but mine hasn't performed as well as I had hoped in hard packed soil. And in rocky ground seams like even small rocks that you can hand drive past, stop it from driving tposts in. I have had the pounder 2 years now and have played with air pressures and even different compressors different operators & still the same outcome. so I would think what little learning curve there is, has past. I rate it as average because the only thing I can compare to is my hand driver.

    Perfect for us "mature" farmers!

    Posted by Unknown on 7th Oct 2015

    Getting old is NOT for wimps!As I age, I still want to do the jobs around the farm myself and not hire out for them. This tool has definitely made this happen. I just ran some fence that would have taken me better part of a morning driving the t-posts. I did it in less than an hour with this tool! I'll also wake up tomorrow morning WITHOUT my back and shoulders hurting me. Thank you so much for making this VERY affordable tool!

    For an old guy way cheeper than they recovery cost.

    Posted by Blaine Sorenson on 2nd Apr 2013

    As I get older I realize that things that I used to easily do are now harder and take a lot more time to recover from. This driver takes 90% of the work out of driving t-post. I had to drive some post near some small fir trees, when I hit a root I would let it drive for about a minute and generally drove thru the root. To keep the post plumb I bought a $6.00 plastic post level and affixed it to the driver.

    So much easier than manual

    Posted by Randy Russell on 18th Mar 2013

    Put the driver to work as soon as I got it. Worked great. You have to check plumb to make sure you're staying straight, but drives t-posts so much faster and easier than a manual driver. This driver is a very welcome tool in my barn.

    It's a rocky road, but it works!

    Posted by Bob Hataway on 3rd Feb 2013

    In southwest Missouri, digging a hole is close to impossible, and sinking a t post by hand is not a easy chore. Getting 2 or 3 in the ground is considered a good day. I'm not going to say that setting a t post with my new post driver is fault free, because it's not. But out of a day's work, we set 30 posts without much of a problem. We did have to pound a few holes with an iron rod to break a rock or two, but after 4 hours and 30 poles set, I was a happy camper. Air usage amazed me. I've got a small compressor and it kept up with the tool with no problem. A couple more miles of fence and I'll be done and the post driver is definitely a mansaver.

    Great tool and time saver

    Posted by Jim C on 2nd Feb 2013

    I borrowed a driver from a neighbor and liked it so much I decided to get my own. It works good and saves a lot of time and soreness the next few days. I only had trouble with one style of fence post which is the old CF&I steel post. It doesn't fit in the reciever very well so at times I have to drive these old post by hand. Over all I like the driver.

    Labor and Time Savor

    Posted by H. Castro on 8th Jan 2013

    I know that there are not enough adjectives in the dictionary to discripe this too. It is AWESOME! While setting tee posts next to a highway, I had people stopping to see how this man saver worked. They were really impressed and wanted to order their own. I gave them the website. Hopefully they will be placing orders. GREAT TOOL!
