Hydraulic Driver Vibrates Fenceposts Into Ground
It vibrates posts into the ground which Murray says is more efficient and safer than other methods.
The Post-Vibe vibrates at up to 9,000 rpm's, depending on the machine it's mounted on. It quick taches to skid steers or farm tractors.
The Post-Vibe installer can be used for both steel and wood posts. It reduces labor costs, Murray says, because set-up time from post to post is far quicker than for conventional post pounders.
"The working action of the Post-Vibe post installer is safer because there's no cycling of a hammer up and down - only downward force and vibration, which does the work until the desired depth is reached."
A cup on the bottom of the vibrator holds the top of the post so that it can't move or deflect sideways.
"I also have a number of attachments available for the Post-Vibe, including various cup sizes, weights, and a carry basket," Murray says. "I can also custom build units."
With just two grease nipples on the Post-Vibe, maintenance is minimal.
The Post-Vibe comes in two different models. Model 400 is on a quick-tach plate and will only reach as high as the unit it's on. It's priced at $9,572 (Can.). Model 102 has a mast with 4 ft. of lift and sells for $13,955 (Can.). Both prices are F.O.B. Red Deer, Alberta.
