Fantastic machine, it works very well alongside the tractor mounted Bryce/Quickfencer combination we use regularly, as fencing contractors we need to get in and get the job done for our customers as get called to do fencing at very short notice if stock are getting out or accident damaged fencing/hedges, sometimes we can only use the Easy Petrol Post Driver this saves so much time and labour. We are very impressed with the machine and can highly recommend it. 5 ***** machine and back up service.

Our most popular Westermann products are the Moss Brush (link) and the Weed Ripper (link) so these two videos go through all the information you will need to get the most out of your machine. Each video starts with setting the machine up after delivery, followed by engine checks, safe starting, operation, and maintenance – all with handy hints and tips along the way. The Westermann range of weed and moss brushes is the next generation alternative to pressure washing for both the commercial industry and domestic users.
These videos go through the 3 most popular Ride-On machines (link https://spapowermachinery.com/product-range/compact-tractor-range.html) from the Westermann range. After showing the features and functionality of each machine the film then shows every available attachment for that unit.
We use the Westermann range of moss brushes for our communal areas and pathways around Bromford Housing schemes and sites that we own. The lads love them, we as a housing association love them, they really are just brilliant. Previously we used a scraper and moss killer so naturally the Westermann Moss Brush has not only saved us mass amounts of time but they also do the job better and cleaner. Being a housing association, we can’t them knock them at all especially with them being chemically free.

Manufactured in Australia, the Easy Petrol Post Driver is designed to enable one man to knock any size stake, peg or post into the ground, up to a 4” diameter. Replacing the old fencing method of a manual post basher this Honda powered post knocker will save you time and energy and money. Complete with a range of adopters to suit a wide range of post sizes from marquee pins to square posts and angle irons.
These videos show the features and functions of our Post Knocker, including the weight, suitable posts, and what is included with the machine. As well as How To Use the Post Wacker.
A stumbling block faced by all, especially during the summer, is the relentless effort required to manually hammer a post into dry, hard ground. Or if you’re using your tractor mounted post driver, actually finding a moment where this is available within these hectic months is arguably harder than finding a winning lottery ticket! It’s a nightmare, we know, we’ve been there...
When a new customer purchases our Easy Petrol Post Driver, it surprises us how many just assume the machine isn’t powerful enough to drive 4” (or smaller) posts into dry and hard ground (because it is powerful enough). It’s only when we talk through the process with them do they recognise just how easy the job can be.
As a result, we thought we would share with you the process of driving a fence post into dry or hard ground.
Bonus: this also works for heavy clay or chalk ground as well.
What is the Pilot Core Tool first of all?
The Pilot Core Tool is a 1 metre long hollow bar which enables you to remove a core of earth out of the ground prior to driving in your stakes. Precisely designed to work on bone dry and hard ground, the cutting head has been heat treated, making it more durable and hard-wearing.
Fit the 107mm adapter to the Easy Petrol Post Driver and slide the space collar onto the Pilot Core Tool.
Using the Easy Petrol Post Driver, drive the Pilot Core Tool in the required location to around a depth of 150mm (6”) less than the required post depth.
Pro tip: wrap some tape around the core tool to show exactly where you need to drive to.
Once complete you can set the post driver down (don’t worry you can leave the Honda engine ticking over in idle mode it’s not fuel thirsty). Then insert the T-Bar (included) horizontally into the Pilot Core Tool. Using a stake as a lever, release the core tool from the ground. Twist and pull with the T-Bar when you’re just about out.
Your ground is now all set. You can tip the contents of the core tool away and crack on with driving in your posts.
Pro tip: fill the hole with water and leave to soak; this makes the soil soft and moist which adds to the ease of driving in your stakes.
Remove the Space Collar from the 107mm adapter for driving 4” posts (or switch to whichever adapter is required for your post size). Then drive your post into the hole you’ve just created. Watch this video to see the results...
