Post Pounders FAQ

The Post Pounder is the hand held gas powered post driver that makes installing fence posts easy. This machine will save you time and effort. Eliminating the need for a pneumatic post driver with the compressor and those hoses, this lightweight powerhouse delivers the punch where you need it, when you need it.

It's easy, start the engine, then just lift the Post Pounder on top of the post and squeeze the throttle. The hammer, powered by a HONDA engine, strikes 1720 times a minute, pounding posts, like a much larger and heavier machine.

The small size of the Post Pounder means it's easily portable. The extra movability enables you to easily bring the Post Pounder to the job. Back in the woods, on the farm or on a new construction site, it is as portable as the old two handed pipe post drivers.

The Post Pounder works well on wood, fibreglass or metal posts including T posts, angle posts, round posts, U posts, grounding rods, rebar, and square posts. Manufacture and servicing of the Post Pounders

Unlike our competitors we produce the post pounders here at our location outside Ottawa from parts manufactured locally and sourced from component suppliers worldwide. This way we can keep our production costs down and offer our customers full service/ spares support for our products.

Our two new Post Pounders have been ergonomically designed with offset handles to put the centre of gravity directly onto the post. Our Post Pounders are 3 inches (80mm) shorter than all the competitive products making for less effort to lift onto the post.The vibration damping springs are encased inside the handles preventing dirt contamination. The PP83 sports a large 83mm (3.25") diameter hammer head, weighing in at 2 kgs, backed by a large diameter piston, making it ideal for pounding larger diameter posts. All models have substantial castings and fixings to withstand the rigours of the outdoors. All joins between castings have O rings seals engineered into the design to prevent lubricant escaping. Internally reliability is achieved with aluminum piston, phosphor bronze bearings on the big ends and on the gudgeon pins for long life. The shaft between the clutch and the gearbox has a shaft seal unlike competitors. An hour meter is built in to ensure service intervals are observed. A grease nipple ensures that the machine can be lubricated without dismantling. The machines are Honda Canada Certified.

Honda came to our facility and we jointly ran tests on the machines by continuously driving posts of various diameters and styles up to 7 feet into the ground while Honda engineers measured ignition, oil temperature, revolutions, horizontal vibration and vertical vibration. Honda engineers then independently ran the tests at the Honda Canada facility on our machines on various other posts.The result is that Honda now fully approves our application of the GX35 for use with the Post Pounders.

No. Unlike our competitors the top and bottom halves are held together with 6 bolts not 4 and all our bolts are secured with thread locker.

Think of it like trying to hammering a nail into wood, easy, but try and hammer a wooden dowel into wood and it is impossible without a pilot hole.

Pounding deer fencing sleeves into the ground used to be hard, time consuming work. At least until Post Pounder came along with this portable, gas powered post driver. Simply, place the Post Pounder over the nominally 2 inch round sleeve and watch this baby go. The sleeve is driven into the ground in a matter of seconds. The rapid beats of the powered driver will often move smaller rocks and stones out of the way allowing the sleeve to penetrate through the ground. You can actually feel the stones vibrating clear as you go. In some applications, fence contractors have eliminated the need for ground sleeves entirely. The Post Pounder will drive a 1 5/8" round post directly into the ground without damaging the top end of the post. The cost savings of installing posts without sleeves can be enormous. A team of two men can now install hundreds of posts in a day, one man operates the gas powered post pounding driver while the other holds the post true.
