Post Driver Trailers
Shaver Manufacturing, based in Graettinger, IA, introduces its TU series of trailers for mounting post drivers that allows operators to transport posts with the drivers. The unit's positioner turntable gives an operator better accuracy and control by tilting the driver forward and sideways, and swiveling it up to 155°. The standard TU-13 trailer features a self-contained, 13-hp Honda engine with electric start. The TU-13-T unit hooks up to a tractor and is powered by the tractor's hydraulic system.
Post Driver, Grapple
The Postmaster, from Danuser Industrial Group, Fulton, MO, includes a grapple option (pictured) that picks up the post from the ground without additional hydraulics or controls. The Postmaster can drive wood or steel posts up to 14' tall, depending upon model. It can drive up to 60 posts/hour and its minimum hydraulic requirements are 12 gpm and 2,000 psi. A 19° tilt option is also available.
Post Driver Attachment
The Pilot Auger, distributed by Kencove Farm Fence, Blairsville, PA, and Shaver Manufacturing, digs pilot holes that make driving posts quicker and easier and reduces driver wear. The auger can attach to and be powered by Shaver's HD-10 or HD-12 post driver unit. It can also be installed on Shaver's skid-steer loader-, tractor- or trailer-mounted units.
Gate Keeper, Alert
The Gate Bell calls long range to a home base station to alert landowners of visitors at the gate. From Gate Bird Long Range Wireless Gate Operator Co., Twin Falls, ID, it comes in 12-volt DC and 9-volt wireless versions. A four-digit code will also allow the gate to open. The Solar 9V Probe, also from Gate Bird Co., is a wireless, solar-powered driveway alarm that alerts up to a half mile or more away from home base stations.

The rail-in-rail design can be constructed as a single continuous rail to whatever length is needed.
