A Unique Project: The Tracked Postmaster (Fencing Rig)

Updated: Nov 15, 2023

Every now and again, we're asked for a special project. This can be in the form of a bespoke piling rig for traditional piling, custom cricket rollers with canopies and USB ports.

However, in this case, our customer approached us to build a bespoke fencing rig - one of a kind.

Designer Metal, at the time, were investigating different methods for installing fencing posts at their estate. These posts being an bespoke design, require a special jaw configuration that would allow the flat steel posts to be driven into the ground.

The Decision and Build Process for the Fencing Rig

With positive testing and a look at our TC600 range, a decision was proposed to create the first ever 'tracked' postmaster rig.

With our insider-knowledge and history of building track-based machines, the customer decided that this would be the best option forward, commissioning the special project.

Using our Midi Postmaster, we mounted the custom bracketry to a custom mast with 5 axis of movement to enable maximum adjustment to vibrate posts into a range of positions and angles.

This was then mounted on a specifically designed chassis and connected to a Hinowa expanding track base for additional stability.

After thorough testing, the machine was painted to the customer's company colors, and at the time was used to install over 400 posts a day !
