The manual post driver is a tool used for the installation of sign posts. Unlike alternative tools and methods, this sign post driver is the ideal choice for installing a small number of posts because of the lower upfront cost when compared to a powered post driver, and because the process is less labor intensive than traditional digging methods.
This particular sign post driver is 25” long, has two large 20” long grab handles, is 11” wide including the handles, and has a 3-1/2” wide opening which makes it extremely versatile, allowing it to be used with 2-3/8” galvanized round posts, up to 2-1/4” square posts, and up to 2 lbs./ft. U-Channel posts.
This post driver also weighs 32 lbs., a weight that is necessary in order to push the post into the ground after each hit, and to provide an easier installation than with lighter post drivers.
Although a post drive cap isn’t required for the post installation, we recommend using one to protect the top of the post from potential bending and damage during the install process. All of our post protector caps work with this post driver.
