Agritechnica: Nowt like a little shake and shove

Irish firm Doyle Engineering is looking to bolster sales of its Vibro post driver. Suitable for mounting on to 5t plus excavators, owner Dennis Doyle explains that the Vibro uses a sequenced system.
Firstly, the post is held in the unit's hydraulic clamp so that the operator can push the post into the ground. Once resistance is met, the double cam hydraulically powered vibration unit is engaged at a slow speed – to help the 600kg weight complete its job. Mr Doyle adds that the pressure on the holding clamp can be adjusted so the post is not damaged.
A second function is that the clamp and vibration set-up can be used to pull posts up – for example, to push in and pull out a smaller post when creating a pilot hole in tough ground for a larger diameter stake.
Price for the Vibro is €8,000, and there's an extra-cost option of adding an electronic level guide.
