Well, August has been an exciting (and expensive!) month! We have finally taken the leap and swapped our original protech tractor mounted post knocker for the latest innovation in fencing- the protect EVO1 tracked post knocker.
The two major advantages of the EVO1 is its super low ground bearing tracks. Unlike a traditional tractor mounted rig, the EVO1 can easily cross steep, wet or uneven ground with minimal impact. It is also self-propelled with an extra efficient 300kg hammer, saving both time and money.
We opted for a couple of extras including a hydraulic rock spike, auger system and a slew of 110 degrees.
We've been putting the machine to good use over the last couple of weeks, installing the perimeter fencing of a 40m x 20m equestrian arena near Harrogate. Of course, it's real test will be later on in the year when the weather starts to worsen, but so far we are incredibly impressed with how well it handles.
Stay tuned for news on how it tackles the steep slopes at a deer fencing job we have in the pipeline!
