    That Man-Saver looks like a nifty tool. It looks like they use 2.5 to 3.5 CFM @ 70-90 PSI & run anywhere from $450 to $850. They would pay for themselves in a short time. https://www.rohrermfg.com/post-drivers/

    At that price I could see buying 5 or 6 and making short work out of long sections of fencing with a couple of people. With the right device at the bottom you wouldn't have to babysit each one for plumb.

    Had one for a few years, fantastic driver. I made a modification though. I inserted an air inflation valve inline with the air hose (like HF 68272, 61380, 56830). There was about 8ft of hose between the valve and the Mansaver. The valve acts as a deadman switch, but more importantly, you don't have to try to flip the switch on the moving Mansaver as it goes up and down.

    Sold it recently to another fellow who is putting in a new fence.
