I can't say enough about how impressed I was with how fast the folks at Rohrer responded to my initial questions, how quickly the unit arrived, and the quality of the construction of the unit. And most of all - how well it actually worked! Saturday morning I loaded up my Gator with a small compressor and generator, and of course the 98E. By early Saturday afternoon, 35 tee posts had been driven through the hard soil of our place. Some went quickly, others much more slowly, but all went in without the backbreaking pounding I've been used to. I'm actually looking forward to the rest of our fencing project now.I can't say enough about how impressed I am with my entire experience with Rohrer Mfg, keep up the great work!Tony Rawls
I just wanted to drop you folks a line. I set 75 t posts in some hard east Texas clay ground today (before lunch by the way) with my new driver. I could not be more pleased with what y’all have come up with. There is absolutely no sense in driving or attempting to drive t posts with a manual driver when this tool is available. The quality of this tool is the finest I have seen, even the box the tool arrived in was the most heavy duty box I’d ever seen. Thanks again for making my life a little easier.Brandond Love, Gilmer, Texas
Have had a man saver post driver for about 8 years and I love it. It becomes a safety/ergonomic thing for us at our farm. We have drove well into the thousands of t posts. We have a fruit farm and use t posts for trellising. We also use it to drive posts for deer fencing. We are in Maine, so we have pretty rocky ground. I even used it this February to drive trellis posts into frozen ground. It stands up to the abuse we give it. It has fallen off the back tailgate on a few occasions. Made in the USA with good customer support. I called this spring with an issue and they helped me out over the phone. Turns out I was running the pressure too high. Its simple design keeps it reliable. It's a great tool and I'll never go back to manually pounding posts again.Michael Goss, Poland, Maine
I bought a Man Saver T-Post Driver about 5 years ago, when I had 25-30 posts to install. The installation went very well. In addition to saving effort, I found that I was able to drive the posts straighter. I have used it on several fencing projects since then. I live in central Texas (rocky soil) and am 5 years older now (age 74) and my post driver has become an even greater asset. Today, I had to drive only one T-post and decided to do it manually - some people call it an 'armstrong' post driver. After 25+ blows with the driver and poor progress I got out my Mansaver. It probably took 75-100 blows, but I was able to drive the post into the rock to the depth that I wanted. It truly is a mansaver. I have never regretted buying it.Lonnie
I have to admit I was very skeptical about something I cant physically inspect the quality of. I am very impressed with the quality of the Man Saver. Drove 20 8ft t-posts into rocky North Dakota clay within an hour and my shoulders didn't hurt afterward. Not too bad with a broken hand and my 11 year old son helping to balance the post until they got started. Thanks for the amazing product and fast shipping. Will recommend to anyone that needs to build a fence around here.Jarad Huxoll, North Dakota
I have rocky soil here and driving posts is not a pretty job. I've tried most other drivers, including gas driven ones, and this one is, hands down, the one for me. I can drive more posts with less effort, and the tool seems pretty straightforward and robust. Of course it will not split large rocks, but it will get through a lot. I'm pleased so far. Plus, I like the people I've spoken with at the company.Ashley Hollister, Green Table Farm
I purchased the basic 98E post driver and just completed driving about 300 posts in difficult soil. Here in Kentucky, we have a lot of burr rock, so on very few of the posts did I not have to encounter burr rocks under the ground. Took awhile, but drove almost every post. Some I had to move a foot one way or the other, but eventually got them in. I pulled a trailer with my tractor, and on the trailer were my generator, a small air compressor, and posts. As it took a lot of strikes to drive most posts, I would generally have to wait for the compressor to catch up at least once. Was a small 2 tank compressor that the local home improvement store was clearance selling for $30. Regular $130. So, can't complain. I tried driving some posts with a regular driver, put the Man Saver does it much faster. All my friends plan on borrowing it. Well worth the money.Lee Carter, Kentucky
Amazed I can drive 25 T posts per hour by myself.J Wallace, Western IL
We bought our post driver several months ago and finally got around to building our fence on 7 Anchor Ranch in Milam County, Texas. It is truly a Man Saver!!!! The machine is built to last and will easily drive 2 7/8” drill stem into ground that no human could. We have completed 1,500 feet and only have 2.2 miles to go. Thank you for such a great product.Darren Osgood, Milam Country, Texas
Over at Perry Ranch, in Calhoun GA, we believe in giving credit where credit is due! After pounding in over 50 t-posts manually for new pastureland, Gene Perry purchased the Man Saver Post Driver! It is VERY appropriately named the Man Saver! We have shown the efficiency of this back saving "ranch hand" in the video below! We spent 2 weekends, with multiple helpers, working on this pasture fence and everyone went to work sore on Monday! But with the Man Saver, Gene and I were able to put in 21 t-posts in an hour and half this morning! See step-by-step process and also our setup with simple equipment: air compressor and portable generator.
It truly is one of the best tools my husband has spent money on in a long time. Lol. It's all 100% true! You have a great product and we were excited that it turned out to be as good as promised!
Thanks for providing a labor and time saver. I built a mile of fence, in Texas, with the help of a professional fence builder. All he provided was two workers. The Rohrer T-Post driver impressed all concerned.
ALSO, when I called I was informed by a very nice older lady to oil tool before using and during. Thanks to her also.
My wife bought a pounder for me back in 2000 for a difficult/fairly vertical piece of property, and we’re still pounding posts with it in 2015! We’re owned three different rural properties in those 15 years and used it to fence them all with the current location being 52 acres. Our son-in-law also borrowed it for their 15 cross-fenced acres so it’s been used in the Rogue Valley, Umpqua Valley, and the Willamette Valley. Best investment we ever made! Couldn’t be happier. Keep ‘em coming!J Richard Brown

We used the post driver along with centaur’s custom horse fencing. we drove 7’ t-posts down so that about 58-59” of t-post was above ground, then installed centaur’s polymer t-post coverings and caps on them.
It’s been a great tool and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone who needs a t-post driver.
We purchased you man saver for our annual Holiday Nights and Lights. It's a 1 mile route where we display over 75 lighted displays. All these displays are held up with t-post. In the prior years we did all these displays (some displays had over 8-10 post) manually. We used the man saver this year and the it did what it's name implies ... it saved our butt. We couldn't of been happier. The only drawback was in extreme cold weather it tended to freeze the oil. Not sure if thinner oil might work better. However, for the most part it worked like a charm. It’s been a great tool and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone who needs a t-post driver.Tim Kurtz

I've had it for a couple weeks, took it out the other day after I got my Polaris Ranger set up for the job. Up to 80-90 post in about a mile and a half in two days! I was shocked how a driver that weighs only 26lbs could drive posts in that hard of ground! Some loose rock and hardpan! Amazing! It hardly uses any air also, I run my compressor at an idle just fine.
My property is 100% decomposed granite in Az. With the Man Saver I drove 100 3/8″ schedule 10 post 3′ deep in a day by myself at about 3 min per post. To give you an idea of how hard the ground is here it takes about 10 min to drive a T-post 1′ with a manual driver and 25 min to drill a 3′ X 9″ hole with the auger on my tractor. This tool is the best tool I own and recommend anyone that does work involving post’s own one. Made in the USA, how can you go wrong!Eric Wagner
Great product. Ground was very hard in the heat of the Summer but still worked well in driving posts 2+ feet. I can’t see ever going back to manually driving posts. It is just the right size and weight for a very mature fellow like myself, ha. The welds and finish on my driver were superb, nothing like built with American Pride. Thanks for the effort to keep standards high and innovative.Laney Pankey
I bought 1 of these from you a week ago. Finally got to try it out over the weekend in hard & rocky dirt. We're in the Missouri Ozarks and we know hard dirt and rocks.
I'm real impressed with it. It performs as advertised and as shown in the videos. Outstanding.
Only thing I've found a problem is the handle used to tighten down on the t-posts does work loose in hard ground and it's pounding hard. I'm not a weakling by any means and I couldn't get it to keep from working loose. Wasn't a huge problem but it was real hot and I was getting irritable.
I'm starting to think you should put me on commission as you will probably be getting orders from other farmers and ranchers in the area. I'm putting in lots of posts along 3 busy roads. I had 3 people stop, watch and ask questions yesterday. I did your little demo of getting the post in a little ways and then let go of the handle and watch it pound itself the rest of the way.
I received the package containing the O-Ring Kit, Allen Bolt, Handle, and T-post Clamp today. Ms. Maudie told me you were having them sent to me, but I was very surprised to get the other two items as well. It was totally unexpected. I would like to thank you very much for your kindness and consideration in this gesture.
Over the course of the past several weeks I’ve called your organization numerous times for assistance and advice trying to get the used Parker Post Driver I purchased from a local farm implement dealer back in operating condition. I’ve talked o Ms. Maudie, Ms. Tanya, and you. Each time I spoke to one of you I received very thorough and courteous help trying to resolve my issues. It is refreshing to know that there are still folks in this country who are conscientious enough about their product that they are willing to help a person in my situation. You and your organization certainly have my respect and appreciation. Thank You.
I took delivery of your post pounder on Thursday. Over the weekend we set about 45 t posts for our 50 X 100 duck herding trial arena. For some people this would be a small project, but for my wife at 65 and myself at 66 years old it was a major project. We found the pounder to be as advertised. We were able to complete a project we never would have been able to do by hand. We know feel we can tackle a bigger project in the spring for a small sheep pasture. This was a great investment and worth every penny.Robert G. Tripp CMA
Dear life, limb and time savers, My 98E Post Driver arrived immediately after ordering it, Thursday, and by Friday morning I had it pounding in my posts. I still find it hard to believe that I was finished with phase 1 of my fencing runs by that first Friday evening. I am a severe skeptic about buying anything online and worried that your online video of the 98E in action could possibly be like the rototiller commercials showing their product working in soft, pre-tilled dirt. Boy was I in for a pleasant surprise! First off, the 98E ran perfectly right out of the box on the ample air provided by my tiny, China made (cheap) electric air compressor plugged into my portable generator that was all sitting handy in my tractor bucket. By the time my ranch hand worked himself to the first corner, he said "This thing already paid for itself!" By the time he got going down the last long run, but only early in the same afternoon, he jokingly said "I think you bought this thing so you don't have to pay me!" ha* The truth is, the 98E has indeed already paid for itself in one day with only 1/2 of my fencing finished. The time (and effort) it has already saved my hired hand doing the job over what would have taken at least several days of back breaking labor if he had had to use a conventional T-post pounder makes me smile even as I type this. The 98E explained in one word? Incredible! This was not only money well spent on a solid, well built product, but a real investment in this current fencing project and every future fencing job I'll ever have to do. Thank you very much for such an awesome and easy to use product! -- Signed, A VERY SATISFIED CUSTOMERSteve Walls

I just wanted you to know that so far I am very pleased with my new 98E Post Driver. Two of us installed 90 t posts in very short order, and I was impressed with how well it worked once we got the hang of it. Thanks for the quick delivery and for making a good product.Richard Mann
It is a relief to do business with a company that is responsive to problems when they arise. Let me interject I find your post driver invaluable. So far I’ve been used it for the obvious- putting in fence posts through clay soil that resembles concrete, but I’ve been able to use it to drive support posts for a floating dock and am now driving pipe for a shallow well. Great product!Michael Bailey
My wife and I recently retired and are in the process of moving to Nevada. We are fencing 80 acres and decided to try your product. Thank you, without it we would have had to hire someone to set the T posts. Product works as advertised, works in rocky soil, and is easy enough for a retired attorney to master T post pounding. Thanks again.Bill Fattarsi
I recently bought the 98E T Post Driver. I had to travel to another state to help my father put in fencing on two sides of his 10 acres. Each side was 660 feet, and I only had 6 days to clear all the old brush, trees and get the entire fence up in 6 days. It would have been impossible without this tool, It was a complete life saver. After talking to my father when we had originally thought about doing it all manually, there would have been no way to complete the job with the time frame I had to help him, not to mention saving our backs, shoulders and arms. Even though I think hands down this is an awesome tool there is room for a little improvement. If there would also be a handle on the post tighter screw it would help stabilize the post driver when you hit hard objects such as small rocks or tree roots and the post driver wants to move slightly. Also the Handle that is already supplied could be just a little longer, most people that operate them are men and have bigger hands and if it were approximately 2 inches longer it would make it easier to hold on to. I would definitely suggest this tool to anyone.Arlin Robb
We have been using our post driver for 3 years and driven approximately 3500 posts. Aside from normal maintenance we have had very few problems. It allows us to drive posts in our rocky Ozarks soil. Repair parts are sent out quickly. Thanks for a great product.Doug Bowerman
I just wanted to let you know that I tried out my new post driver last weekend. Including a couple little glitches it totally out performed my expectations. We drove 264 6' tee posts 2' in the ground in 8 hours. The soil had a little moisture in it which helped tremendously because it is usually hard pan all the way. None the less this is my huge thank you! Thank you for making a driver that I could afford to buy and then actually does the job too!Terry Wiese
I am very impressed with my Man Saver T-Post Driver. I would never have completed the fencing job on my premises without the use of this handy tool. I installed six hundred feet of electric fence material with the use of your excellent tool in what appears to me to be cement type hardpan. After I purchased my post driver from you, I started to have reservations on whether your product would work in this kind of soil. I was very surprised! It worked great! This tool took quite a beating and so did I, but the job got done. Thank you for manufacturing a useful, quality product.Cliff Alexander

This is just a note to let you know the post driver I bought works great. The soil is very dry and hard, but the driver puts the posts down. It's a good product.Jasper Edwards
I just wanted to drop you a line, to tell you how happy I am, with your product. I purchased your 99E-X driver about a month ago to drive in a new well point. My current water point had gone bad. It had been put in over 30 years ago and the pipes had rusted and created leaks. Absolutely no plumber in the state would drive in a new point, or work on one period. They all told me to put in a well. No one uses a point anymore. I called around and I received 3 estimates to put in a well. Several of my neighbors had used these companies and the average well depth seemed to be 660 feet, at a cost of more than $10,000. After buying your product, the new pipe, well point and fittings at a total cost of less than $1,000. I put in my new point at which is working wonderfully. It took me 2 ½ hours to driver over 25 feet of galvanized pipe in the ground. All while working in a space where I could barely stand, my basement. Thanks again for the great product and the great customer service that I received on the phone.Tom Hewitt

I bought my post driver about 2 years ago but didn’t get to use it until recently. I drove about 40 t-posts in about an hour while building an entryway gate I needed to drive in a 2 3/8” kicker in some tough soil. I put 5ft of pipe in the ground in approx. 30 minutes. I’m so glad I bought it because my new place that I just bought needs all new fencing. It’s going to make my life much easier.John Rockafellow
I bought your post driver about 3 years ago. I must have driven 10,000 or more posts. I bought a second one later. I am pleased with your product. I contract barbed wire fence by the mile and your products are a key part of my tool inventory. Keep up the good engineering.Jimmy Stevens
We are very impressed with the two 99E-W post drivers. All the guys love how light they are and how well they do the job. They told me these will not work. They are too small. Boy, were they wrong. All the guys at Universal Studios Hollywood give you a big high five.Bud Steele

Hello from Texas…just surfing the web and thought I would check out your site. I must say it’s as good as your product. I have a 98E Post Hole Driver. Hadn’t had much time to use on my 30 acres but when I do she pounds like a charm. I must say thank you for a good product it makes my neighbor jealous.Joe Sirchia
We recently bought our first small ranch. We have many fence lines to repair, and new fences to run. We spent a few weeks in the summer driving t-posts by hand, 2 of us swapping out every few minutes. It was incredibly hard work. I knew there must be an easier way. I found a pneumatic t-post driver at my local tractor supply store, however it was just not very successful, and we returned it the same week. I searched online and came across your product. After watching the online video I decided we would give it a try. Let me tell you a little about our property, we have several areas of very hard ground, it is not uncommon to wear out a set of bits on our post hole digger on just one hole (this is hard dirt, and not rock). I was skeptical your product would be able to drive posts into this ground; your website claimed your product “drives wherever a 35 lb. hand driver will work”, and we had driven posts using such driver (it could take 3 or 4 minutes a post, or longer when physical exhaustion set in). We recently took the new driver out to set a new fence line, I loaded the driver, a 10 gallon compressor and a gas powered generator into the bed of my pickup and set off to the top pasture with my laborer. We took the old manual “human powered” driver too, fully expecting to have to use it at times. Your product could only drive t-posts as deep on each stroke as we had been doing preciously by hand, it did however drive them much more quickly between strokes, and did not require rest breaks. I am not exaggerating when I tell you we set our fence line in half a day, when this would normally have taken 2 to 3 days! The first time we used it we made fools of ourselves, as the unit effortlessly drove the posts into the ground my laborer and I jumped up and down like giddy school children. Having used other pneumatic drivers without success, I strongly recommend this product. Thank you for saving me from tired muscles and an aching back!David Andrews
Last Monday I ordered for the next day delivery to Plainview, Texas, your Man-Saver T-Post Driver. On Wednesday and Thursday three of us built ½ mile of 5-wire fence using about 200 T-posts and driving these with our new driver.Herb Stephens
