Marchant Engineering has been manufacturing the Air Driven Picket Post Driver in Australia since 1987, helping farmers and fencing contractors to build long strained fences in record time. It will drive star posts through bitumen, shale and black soil surfaces as well as ironstone and sandstone.
This air tool has proven its worth in the harsh terrain of Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, UK and now the USA; where in Texas it is the only hand held tool powerful enough to drive oil pipe into broken limestone, turning a job that took 4 hours per post into a job that takes 12 minutes per post.
It is performance like this and the Driver’s versatile size that has made it the perfect tool for a wide range of fencing projects, like temporary fencing for construction sites, putting in roadside reflector posts on highway projects and security fencing for US Air Force bases in Afghanistan.
With the application of additional
drive kits the Picket Post Driver
can drive in:
Some plastic posts
Roadside guide posts
1 1/2" through 6" round or square steel or timber posts
Angle corner strainers
and many more . . .

STRIKING DOLLY - There is 1 dolly in the box with the driver. A dolly will fatigue between 5,000 to 15,000 posts depending on the type of ground and how the driver is used. Farmers will probably never need another dolly while contractors will break them after continual use. It is advisable to always have a spare dolly so you can continue to use the driver if you break a dolly.
ADAPTOR DOLLY - The adaptor dolly has a 25mm hole with 6 sets of grub screws to hold any tool you want to make up yourself. This could be a ramming bar, bead breaker, rock breaker, chisel, flat faced tamper for compacting mud brick and earthen walls etc. To use the adaptor dolly firstly remove the guide then unscrew the retaining nut and replace the striking dolly with the adaptor dolly. Do not replace the guide. Anti-seize grease needs to be used on the shank of the tool.
