Post Driver

    Looking at getting a post driver just looking for any recommendations between the different brands Malone , Kentec, Vector, MB, Cross, IEP. Malone seem to be most common available costing 4k. All the others coming in between 4200-4600 mostly vector and cross abit more. Any reason you should pay the bit extra on one of them from experience thanks

    Bought a new multec in the north about 7 years ago for around €2400. Basic enough for a farmers but worth it's weight in gold. The main things that you need are tilt on the top link and side tilt you would be lost without it. Within a year I put a ball hitch on the post driver as it's handy to pull a trailer around if fencing, be it carrying posts, tools, cleaning up branches etc

    If you can get one with wire unrollers and a rock spike, any would do. Was looking at the Cross post driver at the Tullamore show and the model there had a rock spike. Didn't get a price on the day but must ring my local Cross dealer any day now

    Bought an iep post driver in 2020.3200 was the cost of it.has all that I need on it and I’m happy with it.was sick of going to co-op looking for their one on hire and it either not available or something broke on it

    Ya including Vat. The malone at 4k is the cheapest I have seen. I think IEP was 4300. Kentec, keltec both around 4500. IEP has a different pulley mechanism than the malone.

    I've a Malone which are fine to be fair but I've used a Cross in the past and they are a serious machine for driving big strainer posts.
