A post driver eases the hard work of putting a fence post into the ground. Most post drivers are manual tools also known as “slide hammers.” The tool goes on the end of the post, and its weight is usually enough to drive the post into the ground by lifting and releasing the post driver, but you can also push down on the handles for extra force. A heavier post driver is harder to lift but generally gets the job done faster. Ensure that the post driver you choose is the proper diameter for your situation. Spring loaded and mechanical drivers are also available to save time and effort.
