New power post drivers help build fence

POWER: “Anything that a hand-held post-pounder can driver, we can drive faster and better,” says Ashley Haffner, Rhino Tool.
Two new post drivers from Rhino Tool promise to make a tough job easier, driving posts up to 3 inches across.

Building fence this spring? Rhino Tool wants to make it easier, and it’s introduced two new post drivers to replace your hand-held manual option:

Minuteman. This fixed-handle post driver is designed to drive posts up to 2 inches in diameter and up to 6 feet in length without a ladder. The company says you can drive T-posts, line posts for chain-link fence, ground rod and ground anchors by switching out one of two adapters for smaller-diameter posts. The unit retails for $910.

Minuteman XL8. This tool is for fence posts up to 3 inches in diameter. It has a rotating handle so you can drive posts up to 8 feet in length without a ladder. With three adapters, it can drive most of the posts the Minuteman can, plus up to 3-inch round wood posts. It can’t be used to drive ground rods. The unit retails for $1,190.

“Anything that a hand-held post-pounder can driver, we can drive faster and better,” says Ashley Haffner, Rhino Tool. Minuteman post drivers are available online or at select dealers and retailers.
