Drives road barriers, tubes / profiles, signposts, fences, anchors, and ground rods 3/8 in. to 2-1/2 in. in diameter.
The LPD-LD works well with almost any hydraulic outlet, including a power pack or skid steer that provides a hydraulic flow of 5 gallons per minute. Contractors can operate the unit with the built-in trigger to easily deliver 2,300 blows per minute (bpm) for fast installations in nearly any terrain. This high-frequency driving also provides smooth operation and minimizes damage to the top of the rod or post, which can occur with machines that operate with fewer bpm.
The post driver accepts standard 2-inch diameter rods, and it can be used with adaptors or bushing inserts to drive 3/4- to 2-1/2-inch rods. The front end of the unit features a built-in anvil and pin for quick and easy installation of adaptors and bushings. Contractors also can install standard 5/8-inch and 1-inch bushing coverings for driving ground rods. To minimize damage to smaller diameter ground rods, contractors can install an adaptor to provide a surface for the anvil to strike rather than the rod. The adaptor can be replaced with 1/2- to 1-inch rods or 2- to 2-1/2-inch-diameter driver heads to install wood stakes, T-posts and round tubes.
