Rob Smit of HortiServices in Duxford has been developing his professional landscaping business over the last few years, and finding that the manual work load is ever increasing, Rob decided to invest in equipment to mechanise the daily tasks as much as possible.
One of HortiServices main investments was the Avant 750 wheeled loader which they purchased from their local AvantDealer – Chris of Avant South East.
“The Avant wheeled loader is an incredibly versatile wheeled loader, and comes with a very good range of attachments”
After a few months of running the Avant 750, Rob found that one of the many varied jobs that HortiServices was being asked to do was paddock and farm fencing, including a lot of post and rail and stock fencing.
“We were using an auger for the hole boring, and then having to backfill the holes on every post, that was when I decided to look at post drivers. After a good amount of research, I decided that the Klou vibrating post driver was the one to use.
I wanted to avoid the traditional drop weight post drivers, as they are very awkward and large to operate, transport and store.
The Klou VPD1.2 vibrating post driver is an incredible piece of kit. The vibration technology is extremely effective at driving the posts into the ground, and the post driver itself is by far the most compact and easy to use out of all the options available. The different post cup holders are easy to change, and the extremely smooth, high-speed vibration allows for easy and simple operation with absolutely minimal damage to the post tops.
The Klou post driver has virtually halved the installation time, and there is now hardly any need for the auger or backfilling.
The post driver was delivered complete with the correct hitch bracket and hydraulic connector to suit the Avant 750, which made the whole operation so effortless, and professional.
Anyone considering purchasing a post driver should seriously consider the Klou VPD1.2 vibrating post driver, it is well worth the investment.” – Rob HortiServices, Duxford.
