Before petrol driven post drivers the options for fencing in awkward locations were much more limited – either a hand-held rammer, or a hydraulic whacker were the options.
Ten years ago, the Easy Petrol Post Driver came on the market and made fencing that bit easier.
It is now available in the UK through Spa Power Machinery.
The EPPD knocks in a huge variety of posts – the most popular application is timber 3-4” stock fencing, but this has been changing with more contractors turning to metal posts for fence longevity.
Many contractors own a tractor mounter post driver which quickly covers a lot of ground,
But what about when its too steep, trees are hanging low, or the ground is too wet?
The EPPD provides the answer, filling the gaps when big machinery can’t get access.
It has been tested in rugged commercial environments worldwide, with new users saying goodbye to their drive-all’s once and for all.
It is also a great addition to a landscape contractors arsenal for:
- Tree stakes from Whips up to Heavy Standards, using all sizes of timber stake
- Tree shelter supports, using 1” or 2” square stakes
- Ground anchor insertion for Semi-Mature tree planting
- Support retaining walls with Angle Irons, Metal Pins, or Scaffold Poles
- Path Edging pegs, using 2” square stakes
Weighing only 15.3 kg – suitable for long days driving a large number of posts.
Vibration levels are measured at 9.24m/s2 which roughly translates to 200 posts per day. And the manufacturers provide a 3-year commercial warranty as standard.
Easy Petrol Post Driver is the original Australian made driver – designed and manufactured in Sydney by Christie Engineering.
