About Tractor Post Knockers
Inserting multiple fencing posts into the ground can be difficult when using manual tools, and it becomes even harder when working with harder ground types. A tractor post knocker provides the required force to effectively drive fencing posts into the ground, and it ensures that each post is also inserted to precisely the correct depth. This type of machinery is primarily intended for agricultural environments, and can be added to an existing tractor. This allows them to be easily moved into the correct position for the installation of each new post.
One useful feature that many machines offer is a tilting facility, and this is particularly beneficial when working on an incline or any other surface that isn't entirely flat. The working angle can be adjusted, and then the knocker can provide the necessary driving force to push the post into the ground. When attaching the post knocker to an existing piece of farm machinery, it is important to take the weight into consideration, and it is possible to buy this machine as part of a package that includes the counter weight and the necessary bracket attachments.
To protect the external surface of each fence post, it is sensible to use some kind of post cap between the post and the tractor post knocker. This ensures that while the post is being struck into the ground, the actual wooden or metallic surface doesn't suffer from cosmetic damage - it has to be remembered that a large amount of force is being repeatedly applied to a relatively small surface area.
