Air-Powered Post Driver Puts In 50 T-Posts Per Hour
You can drive 50 or more T-posts per hour in even the toughest ground with this new air-powered post driver from C & G Tools.
The Ovis Ram post driver weighs only 39 lbs., light enough for one man to operate all day with minimal fatigue, the company says. The 26-in. long ram is triggered automatically as you set the unit onto the top of the post. A pair of small dia. air cylinders brings the ram down with a hammer-like blow.
It works off a small air compressor with at least 6 cfm's at 60 to 80 psi's.
"It'll drive a post into frozen or extremely rocky ground. It'll even drive a post through asphalt," says John C. Crighton of C & G Tools.
Works on all three standard size T-posts, and adapters are available to use on round posts up to 2 1/2-in. in dia.
Sells for $895. An industrial model, which is 40 percent more powerful, sells for $1,195. The company also makes a manual post-pulling tool. Sells for $50.
