Every year we tear down the welded wire pens so the manure can be scraped out. Then we have to rebuild them. This usually means several days or weeks of pounding in t-posts by hand. Blisters and sore muscles are only some of the hazards of this task. This is getting very old so we went looking for some alternatives. Big hydraulic post pounders that mount on the tractor are one option but then you have to maneuver a tractor to each post location and with our rocks that could become as difficult as putting them in by hand. Then we found this tool. It’s an air powered post pounder. We bought one and it appears to be working fairly well. It’s still hard work to put up the fencing but we got the entire pen for the adult rams built in one morning and the ram lambs pen built in another morning.
