Side Shift Front Mount Post Driver
"I couldn't find a commercial post driver with the size and features I needed, so I built my own," says Arthur Argo, Plains, Mont, who liked his post driver so much he now produces commercial units on a custom basis.
Argo's hydraulic-driven, front-mounted post driver is unique in that it tilts in any direction and can even be shifted sideways, as needed. "One of the most frustrating things about post driving is getting the tractor lined up for correct post placement, especially on rough or sloping ground. This post driver eliminates the problem," says Argo, noting that one of the first units he built has put in over 60 miles of fence without a repair.
The driver's hammer weighs 950 lbs. making it ideal for driving large, 10-ft posts used in corrals and on corner braces. The entire driver, which includes all required hydraulics, can be easily attached and re-moved by one operator in about 10 min. Attaches with just 6 bolts. Sells for $4,750. Also available without side shift feature for $4,250.
