Last couple evenings and this morning assembled machine, replaced all lockwashers, washers, the blocks that the hammer rides on and a few more parts....1215171140.thumb.jpg.d4f8525d53e61211bb54f582d61cb3ec.jpg

Also I've set the driver on the mount in hope of being able to see what I am doing...moved it back 3 inches so I can use the window... We will see how that works out....

More like 2,000 posts... Its a violent, mildly suicidal machine, with that much force something is going to give....thanks

This was a learning process so far the bigest thing I've learned is invest in a paint gun for better results....and don't wait so long to rebuild....

Was around one 20+ years ago, we built a line fence with a neighbor who had Shaver post driver. We drove rr ties for the corners and 4" wood for the rest.

Up and going... I did not realize the amount of drag that had with the worn parts....sure hits faster and harder...

Not sold on the offset yet I can see a little better but needs a counter weight. I think a couple 100s would do it...

Are you putting electro- braid fence in or is that rope just a guide rope?

Now that you say it I see the black marks are the graduations I thought it was the black thread in electro- braid.

The thing about post drivers is you have to make a conscious effort to use a post holder instead of your hand.
