    post driver for subcompact?

    Anybody know if any of the post drivers (shaver hd8 for example) are compatible with a 1025R?
    Reading the specs, it seems like the 1025's power beyond can supply the required hydraulic flow,
    and the weight is within the limits of the 1025's 3 point, but has anyone done it? Not particularly
    interested in being a guinea pig for $2500+, and my dealer tells me its much too large...

    1025R FILB with 60" MMM, 48" Kuhn tiller, 60" Howse box blade,
    Howse post hole digger, JD LX60 brush cutter, Bearcat chipper, 3-point broadcast spreader
    Artillian forks and receiver mount, Cyclone Rake.

    Believe the dealer

    We have an old driver on an IH784 and I wouldn't want to put it on my 790. While the 790 might have enough hydraulic flow, the driver imparts a heck of a whack to the post and consequently there's a lot of vibration coming back through the tractor. I could see it potentially breaking a CAT 0 lift arm. I'm also not sure the 790 or a SCUT would have the hydraulic reservoir or the port to accept the exhaust flow coming out of the driver. The driver is also fairly heavy and needs a certain lift height on the 3ph to transport the or fit over a post. I'd trust your dealer on this one.
