He wakes up before the sun even has a chance to peek over the horizon. Every morning he fills a giant tumbler with coffee on his way out the door. He gives each day everything he’s got, and when the sun goes down his fingernails are just as dirty as his jeans. He’s dedicated his life to his family and to his land.

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?
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.
70-75 PSI 98-E Basic T-Post Driver
80-90 PSI 99-EY Post Driver
90-100 PSI 99-EM Post Driver
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?
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.
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!

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.

We recently came across an article listing ranching among the “10 Most Dangerous Jobs in America.” It’s true that overturned tractors and bucking animals are risks that come with the territory. In 2012, agricultural workers accounted for 21 deaths per 100,000 in a Bureau of Labor Statistics study. Continue reading
