Who: Dan Rohrer shares his zeal for American-made products, his problem-solving invention, and takes us inside the home of the Man Saver Post Driver ™ at Rohrer Manufacturing Where: Filmed in Prineville, Oregon at Rohrer Manufacturing and at Rohrer Ranch in Powell Butte, Oregon.


Customers like Jay Bettesworth (pictured above) will stand up and testify to the power of the Man Saver Post Driver™ like a Sunday morning preacher. It’s been his saving grace on more than one occasion and he’s passionate to share about it. Featured in Rohrer Manufacturing’s upcoming TV segment on The American Rancher, Jay’s testimony is making Rohrer’s product a conversation piece in the ranching and agricultural community.


Against a backdrop of grazing water buffalo and Central Oregon’s Smith Rock State Park is the man behind the machine. Dan Rohrer isn’t one about town; he mostly keeps to himself and enjoys the space and privacy his ranchlands afford. To get the inventor’s story of the Man Saver Post Driver ™, you almost have to pry.

Maybe it’s because Dan doesn’t fancy himself an inventor; he’s more of a problem-solver. And when he caught wind of an all-too-often complaint: a sore back caused from years of pounding t-posts for fence installation into the unforgiving, high desert soil—Dan struck up a bit of genius.

He would create the wonder tool; something to take the back pain and cursing out of the equation. He wasn’t pleased with the quick fixes already available on the market. He would do this product right, or not at all. The lightweight portable air-powered post driver was his solution to painstaking manual labor, a reason to work smarter, not harder.

In 1997, when the Man Saver was envisioned, Dan was committed to use all American-made parts, as he does today. There’s only one piece of the Man Saver Post Driver™ product that’s not manufactured at his Prineville facility.


The American Rancher crew got an inside look at the birthplace of the Man Saver, in all its rugged charm. They even met Rohrer’s famed customer service representative, Mrs. Maudie, who answers the phone with trouble-shooting tips and sends replenishment parts with a pragmatic, can-do attitude.

On the wall at Rohrer Manufacturing is a pioneering article in The Capital Press entitled: “Leave the driving to him.” Anyone who tries Dan’s product trusts him. It’s that simple. No crazy promises or guarantees, just something that holds up under pressure. Dan believes the product will sell itself, and that’s exactly what it does. Especially the 98-E Basic T-Post Driver. It’s been called a life-saver by customers like Jay, the tool that does the work of an extra ranch hand. Who knows, it might even make a believer out of you.
