I utilized this tool to install 65 T-posts in hard clay-like soil. Despite some skeptical reviews, I encountered no issues with the machine. The only drawbacks were that the pins in the case fell out immediately, there was no included oil for the hammer, and the instructions did not specify the type of oil to use. Apart from these minor issues, the machine performed excellently. I managed to set all the posts on my own in less than a day, starting with a manual post setter and completing the task with the gas-powered one. The machine is somewhat heavy, so if you're not tall and physically fit, I recommend using something to stand on and having an assistant.
This week, I installed 1100 T-posts and drove a few 2 3/8 pipe posts using this machine, and it performed flawlessly. It starts very easily, and I only used 3 gallons out of the 5 gallons of fuel I mixed. It's definitely worth the money. I gave it 4 stars because the collets tend to crack and break, and some screws fell out that should have had Loctite.
I haven't driven my first post yet, but after reading the manual that comes with it, there is no mention that the piston side of the gear train comes shipped without oil. There is no oil in the sight glass, and it is shipped dry due to postal regulations. After studying the parts diagram, I noticed a connecting rod that links to the hammer, similar to the rod on an auto engine, requiring lubrication to avoid failure. I removed the sight glass and added motor oil to this area. It doesn't take much. I put the sight glass back on and stood it back up, realizing I had too much oil. I had to drain some out (made a mess) and put the sight glass back in until the oil level was visible above the red dot on the sight glass. The gear side was well lubricated with grease from the factory. The 20:1 oil mixture might seem like a lot, but that's how I mixed it according to the instructions for the first few hours. It should smoke enough to keep the mosquitoes at bay while I am driving fence posts! After priming, it started right up with less than 10 pulls on the rope.
An excellent purchase that saved me time, energy, and resources during the construction of my white vinyl fence. No digging or cement was required, resulting in a clean fence installation. Although a bit heavy to lift, it aided in making the posts go down easily. Overall, it was absolutely worth it.
Received the driver and initiated the setup process. Initially, I added 80-90 W gear oil to the gearbox. Then, I filled the gas can to the recommended line for a 25:1 ratio with 2-cycle oil and topped off the gas side with 91 Octane gas (ethanol-free). After mixing the two, I located the primer bulb and primed the gas to the carburetor. With a few pulls, the engine started right up. Given its weight and my age, my intention was for my son-in-law to operate it. He successfully drove 8 T-posts with intermittent starts and stops, and each time, the engine started promptly. We concluded the day by driving a 2 3/8" steel pipe 4 feet into the ground. The driver performed admirably, meeting our expectations and more. I am content, and our future plans involve installing approximately 200 T-posts around the property.
