Klou Vibrating Post Driver - Avant Equipment

Digging and Construction Klou Vibrating Post Driver

The Klou Vibrating Post Driver is a high-performance vibrating post-driver, built to drive posts in the most demanding ground conditions. Compact in size and working at a range of angles this loader attachment makes fast work of driving posts into a variety of soil types with an Avant mini loader.

Specialist vibration transfer technology transmits vibrations from the unit through the post and into the ground – stones and other obstacles are simply vibrated out of the way. The post driver can install posts rapidly, while minimising stresses caused to the post. The post driver is particularly useful with an Avant articulated mini loader when working in conditions where access to the working area is limited, due to the long reach capabilities that the post drive and Avant mini loader provide.

As the post driver has no exposed moving parts, and the risk of a post shattering is negligible, it is very safe to operate. In fact, the low weight and compact dimensions of the unit ensure that it does not impact carrier stability, even at full reach.

It can be used for the installation of:

  • Bank stabilisation systems for rivers
  • Vineyard stakes
  • Farm fencing
  • Post-and-rail fencing
  • Wooden, plastic and steel shoring systems
  • Jetty support posts
