We recently came across an article listing ranching among the “ 10 Most Dangerous Jobs in America.” It’s true that overturned tractors and bucking animals are risks that come with the territory. In 2012, agricultural workers accounted for 21 deaths per 100,000 in a Bureau of Labor Statistics study.

A good rancher does his best to ensure safe handling of his herd and equipment to keep work-related injuries at a minimum. The reason our tool exists is to eliminate back pain associated with manual fencepost driving. We believe in working smarter so that you don’t have to injure your back, or worse, to put in a decent fence.

Time is money on the ranch, and when you’re working well over 40 hours a week, it’s imperative that you get things done right the first time. Enter our portable, yet sturdy, tool. But don’t take our word for it. Here’s a real customer, Mr. Steve Walls of Central Point, Oregon. He writes:

“The truth is, the 98-E Basic T-Post Driver has indeed already paid for itself in one day with only half of my fencing finished. The time (and effort) it has already saved my hired hand doing the job over what would have taken at least several days of back-breaking labor if he had used a conventional T-post pounder makes me smile even as I type this. The 98-E explained in one word? Incredible!”

Ranching is more than a profession; it’s a lifestyle developed around generations of men and women building fence, working the ground, welding panels, and sorting cattle. Few other jobs allow families to work together the way agriculture does, and we’re proud to support your safety with our high-caliber equipment.
