Why Installers Use Post Drivers
Installing posts is the second step in the fence installation process; and while it is not hard to do, it can be quite time consuming for homeowners with large acres of land. To expedite the process of installing fence posts, installers choose to use post drivers to help easily drive posts, stakes and rods into smooth soils.
Post drivers are lightweight, at just 35 pounds and generally gas-powered using a 4-stroke engine and powered by 1.3 horsepower. While gas powered post drivers are used to install posts, they do not work to install ground sleeves - the first step in the installation process.
For those with large plots of land, consider expediting the process with a gas powered post driver.
