    T-post driving question

    Not sure where this should be but will start here. Anyone driving T-post with a Shaver or other brand post driver? I have some fences that are tree lined and I thought I would try driving some galvanized T-posts as I know there are too many roots for a wood post.

    I made my own. Much better as it is heavier than any of the store bought ones. Of course it plays you out pretty quick if you are driveing alot.

    I just saw a video of a guy using a T-post driver with a regular post driver so I guess I had better modify my T-post driver so it will fit in the post pounder.

    I just pound them with a hand pounder. Have done 1000's that way; it's good exercise.

    You are correct but since most of mine will be in the roots and I had my chest split open a little over a year ago, I will let the pounder do the work.

    T-post driving question

    Like Arlen, all the T posts I've put in have all been done by hand. My post driver is one my grandfather had. Great work out for your arms that's for sure.

    EDIT: I really need to read the whole post before I respond . I wouldn't want to drive them in by hand if I had to have the OP procedure done so I'm guessing you are looking for something tractor mounted to drive the T posts in?

    I have a Shaver 10 post driver. I was just wondering if anyone built anything special to drive t-posts with it. Maybe I wasn't clear. From what I found using Google, looks like folks are using a t-post driver on the t-post and driving on that with a tractor mounted post driver.

    You are correct, Shaver Video. Their website shows loading the driver with the T-post, hand driver and then setting it.
