3 Reasons Why the Man Saver is the Best Post Pounding Tool on the Market

It’s fence mending season! With that comes even earlier mornings, later nights, screaming muscles and dirt permanently lodged underneath fingernails.

Whew… post driving is hard work!

But it doesn’t need to wipe you out.

The Man Saver Post Driver is an excellent, affordable alternative to bulky hydraulic or backbreaking manual fence post drivers. We’ve been driving posts since 1997, so we know a thing or two about getting the job done… and we are 100% confident that the Man Saver is the best fence post driver on the market. Here’s why:

The Man Saver is portable

Ideal for remote locations and tight spots, the Man Saver allows you to lay miles of fence in no time flat. Throw it in the back of your trusty pickup truck, along with a portable air compressor, and what used to take days (or even months) now takes hours.

ROH 1

The Man Saver is air-driven, both up and down, and runs off any small compressor that delivers at least 2.5 CFM at 90 PSI.

The Man Saver has different sleeves for most post sizes

We know that posts come in all sorts of sizes and shapes and are up to the task of creating the perfect sleeve for your toughest jobs. Our sleeves and adapters allow our post drivers to fit almost any post on the market today.

ROH 2

Did you know that the folks here at Man Saver can also create a custom adapter to accommodate a specific post? Just email or fax us a tracing of the end of the post, including exact dimensions for all angles.

The Man Saver is easy for one person to use

The Man Saver post driver weighs in at a mere 26 lbs. No more lugging heavy equipment around and adding to your shoulder and back pain.

We call the Man Saver Post Driver the best ranch hand you’ll ever hire. It never complains and never needs a day off. The learning curve is short and sweet. Take it out of the box at 8 a.m. and you’ll be driving posts before your 9 a.m. coffee break.

ROH 3

The Man Saver Post Driver is an air-powered-dream-come-true.

But don’t take our word for it! See what our loyal customers have to say, like Paul from Washington:

ROH 4

We know there aren’t enough hours in the day to get your work done. From sun up to sun down, the fixing, building and planning ahead never ends. The work can be hard, but it doesn’t have to be backbreaking. That’s why we designed the Man Saver Post Driver to make your job easier. Imagine taking back pain (and cursing) out of your daily equation. No more sore shoulders! No more aching back! No more Bengay smell wafting through the house.

Man Saver’s Top 7 Reasons to Buy American

The Industrial Revolution tapped into our national resources, which led to further innovations in manufacturing and mining. Henry Ford then ushered us into the Golden Age with his assembly line. Through it all, manufacturing in the United States has been an essential cornerstone for global invention as well as our economic success as a nation. Continue reading

Post Driver Maintenance

Are you the proud new owner of a Man Saver Post Driver™? We’re glad you’re here and have a great product demo video on how to setup your Man Saver for success.  However, if you’ve owned one for a while and haven’t kept up on the maintenance of the tool, we would like to provide you with a quick overview of how our product works. Read below or watch this video for how to oil the basic parts to keep your Man Saver running like a dream. We will use our most popular model, the 98-E T-Post Driver, as our demo product as it’s the most used among ranchers.

What kind of oil should I use in my post driver?

post-driver-oil

We use 20 weight hydraulic oil. Air tool oil is too thin, and it will prevent the driver from continuously cycling, as it’s meant to. Always ensure that your driver is getting plenty of oil by putting 3-4 tablespoons down the compressor end of the air hose before use, and again every 1.5 to 2 hours of use.

Set your air compressor at the correct PSI setting for best performance.

80-90 PSI 99-EY Post Driver
90-100 PSI 99-EM Post Driver

Helpful Tips

It is not recommended to exceed the advised amount of PSI as it will have an adverse effect on the performance of the Man Saver.

If the ground is hard, have you tried changing out the plastic weight on the “on/off” lever with the heavy, metal weight? The plastic weight is for light pounding while the heavy, metal weight is for hard or rocky soil. This small change can help.

How do I know if there’s a problem with the O-rings?

post-driver-maintenance

Place the driver on a post that’s already in the ground. Hang onto the long orange handle on the side of the driver, and when you turn the air on, hold the driver in place, not allowing it to move up. It should give you a quick spur of air if the O-rings are ok. If there is a problem with the O-rings, it will keep blowing air out of the valve.

Return Policy

We do accept returns up to 30 days from the date of purchase for commercial use and 90 days from the date of purchase for farm use. If you give it a try and decide it’s not working out, we charge a $50 restocking fee for returns plus shipping. Exchanges are possible, and a restocking fee is not charged in this case.

We look forward to hearing about the projects you’ll be able to finish with this tool. Give us a call at 1-800-980-7599 with any product or service-related questions you might have. We are here for you!

Is the Man Saver any good? Ask your neighbor.

Man Saver T-Post Driver

If you needed a piece of advice, or to borrow a tool, the old way of doing business was to lean over the fence and ask your neighbor for it. Times have changed, but a neighbor’s word is still weightier than an advertisement or product claim. Our customers are the best audience to help us improve our tool. They test our product with the daily challenges of fence building on the ranch and they’re honest about how easy it works for them. A real customer recently shared how his Man Saver is 14 or 15 years old, and estimates it’s put down 40,000 posts or more. That kind of longevity is what we aim for in building a tool that lasts.
