Shaver post drivers are used by professional fencing contractors and farmers to install and maintain fence lines. Drive posts quickly and efficiently using the tractor or skid steer hydraulics. Easy mounting and operation allows the operator to drive posts quickly and efficiently. The post driver has a tilt and offset function to drive posts vertically every time.
Shaver post drivers can be mounted on a tractor or skid steer loader and are powered hydraulically. Oil from the tractor hydraulic system raises a spring loaded driving ram. At the touch of a lever on the hydraulic valve, the oil dumps back into the tractor reservoir and the spring loaded ram strikes the post, driving it into the ground.
The operator has complete control over the driving operation. The post is held in place with a spring loaded safety arm, allowing the operator to stand well to the side of the driving operation. Gentle blows start the post into the ground.
All Shaver drivers tilt and offset to make driving a vertical post easy. The tilt and offset functions are handled mechanically with a screw crank system, or hydraulically with the aid of cylinders. In extreme conditions, a pilot auger (4" diameter) can be mounted to the driver. The pilot auger hole allows a post to be driven into very hard ground.
There are three models of driver to choose from. Commercial fencing operators will want to choose either the HD-10 or HD-12 model. The HD-10 delivers 70,000 lbs of impact and can handle posts up to 8.75" in diameter. It requires 12 gallons of flow per minute at 1,500 psi.
1.How does a Shaver Post Driver operate?
A Shaver Post Driver uses hydraulic power to raise a weighted driving ram. The driving ram hits the fence post, forcing it in the ground with compression strokes.
2.How many foot-pounds does a Shaver Post Driver deliver?
The Shaver HD-10 Post Driver delivers 70,000 foot-pounds of striking force.
3.How do you mount a Shaver Post Driver?
The Shaver Post Driver mounts on to a tractor three point hitch. The skid steer version mounts to the unviersal skid steer hitch. Hydraulic hoses are attached to the tractor or skid steer auxiliary hydraulic ports.
