Driving a few posts by hand with a post driver can be fun, but driving a bunch of posts is too much like hard work. Next time get a little help driving from your air compressor by hooking it up to the Striker TS air operated post driver.

The post driver can drive posts up to 1-3/4″ in diameter using only 2 CFM of oiled air at 80-90 PSI. To use the driver, connect your air hose to the air port in the handle and place the driver over the post. Hold onto the driver with both hands and lift the black handle which lifts the internal weight. Then pull down on the driver with both hands to drop the weight. The driver can produce up to 60 drives a minute.

The Striker air powered post driver runs about $400 plus shipping.

    This strikes me as a rent instead of buy tool.

    Yeah, I’d rent one too … or maybe not after I saw a video of one in action:

    Could be cool. There is another manufacturer, who’s name escapes me now, who produces a driver that clamps on the post, that you don’t have to hold on to while it works. It is sometimes a pain to get air to some fencelines.
    Then again you could always get a pipe larger than what you installing and slide it over the post and press it in with a loader,

    I recall seeing an advertisement for one that uses propane to fire a piston to drive a post. On a big fencing job – we rented an attachment for our skid steer. I think it was called a shaver – or maybe that was the brndname.

    Tippmann makes a propane powered hammer that gets around the need for a compressor. I have no idea how well it works.
