What is a manual post driver?
A manual post driver is a handy tool that is used to drive posts gradually into the ground without too much effort. A manual post driver is used to knock posts in by hand until they are in the ground at the desired depth. This type of post driver requires more physical strength compared to a post driver with a different drive. But if you generally use a hammer, you will appreciate the convenience of a manual post driver, which will get your jobs done faster. At EuroGate International, we supply top quality manual post drivers that are ideally suited for various types of post (e.g. steel, aluminium or wood).
The way a manual post driver works is very simple. You place the tool on top of the post and by banging up and down you knock the post a little deeper into the ground with each stroke. The force of the blow is completely in your control, so you can be very precise. It’s also possible to go back to posts that you’ve installed with a hole digger and, if necessary, knock them in so that they are sturdier and at the right height.
What types of manual post driver are there?
EuroGate International’s range includes various kinds of post driver with different drives. Every job is different, so every customer has a different set of requirements and that’s why we have a wide range. As well as post drivers with a manual drive, i.e. the manual post driver, there are also the following;
· Buy a petrol drive
· Buy a hydraulic drive
· Buy a pneumatic drive
With the manual drive, such as the manual post driver, you have to use more power as you are creating the impact force yourself. Pneumatic post drivers are always driven by high air pressure, the air being compressed by a compressor. The machine is compact and runs on electricity. Post drivers with petrol engines have a very powerful high impact striking action and can also generate many blows per minute. Hydraulic drives, on the other hand, are set in motion by a liquid and driven by hydraulic power.
