    Gas powered post driver options

    I'm going to fence in a big portion of our 3 1/2 acre property over the fall and winter. The property is wooded with some rocks, but a lot of roots to deal with. I'm looking to buy a gas powered post driver and the options are a little overwhelming. I don't want to rent as this will probably take me some time to accomplish as I'll be clearing fence line as I go. I will be driving t-posts, but if it could drive round posts that would be a plus. I see that some use adapter sleeves for different post types. My plan would be to sell it after I get the work done, so I think putting a little more money into it up front, like getting one with a Honda engine, would help resell later.

    What about air powered drivers? I'm not totally opposed to that, but I'd have to rig up the generator and a compressor on a carryall to use one of those. If they are a better option, I'd consider it.

    I already have a manual driver that I use here and there, but am not interested in using it for the larger project.

    Any experience with any powered products in particular?

    I’ve been thinking about this one. https://www.rohrermfg.com/post-drive...t-post-driver/
    It’s easy enough for me to bring a small compressor & generator behind the UTV.

    After doing all of the internet research that I have up to this point, I believe that I'll be sticking with a gas powered driver. I'm leaning towards the Titan PGD2875H. It's got a Honda engine, will drive posts up to 3" and only weights 28 pounds. It is a consumer oriented model and it's price is about mid range before you start throwing in pro models.

    I've got a few more feelers out, but I need to get started soon. I just got a Tractor Supply 10% off coupon, so I'll be picking up supplies soon.

    My neighbor rented a similar gas powered post driver to sink a sand point well after we tried all kinds of methods-from manual to electric. The gas powered driver was clearly the right tool for that job. It was slick as can be.

    I took Monday off to have a fence day, but it's supposed to rain, may be a little bit before I get to use it.

    So what does it actually weigh, your link stated 28#, but the Specs page said 45#?

    I just weighed it. It's 23.6 pounds dry and 41 pounds in the case with the accessories. It came in a box, so that would push the shipping weight closer to 45#s.

    Can this drive wooden posts as well as Tposts?
    Looks like a great timesaver.
