FULTON, Mo. — Danuser, a leading manufacturer of attachments for agricultural and construction equipment, is launching a new post driver and stump auger.
The Hornet is a quick and powerful post driver. The jackhammer-style power cell offers a controlled, high-speed driving performance. With Danuser’s one-man grapple option, it is an all-in-one driving solution.
Two models are available:
• Drives T-posts up to a 7″ diameter post/pipe.
• Impact rate: 500 to 900 blows per minute.
• Hydraulic requirements: 2,000 to 3,500 psi / 10 to 30 GPM.
• Impact energy: 684 foot-pounds.
• Drives T-posts up to an 8″ diameter post or pipe — can also drive RR ties with optional RR tie driving tool.
• Impact rate: 400 to 800 blows per minute.
• Hydraulic requirements: 2,200 to 3,500 psi / 13 to 30 GPM.
• Impact energy: 884 foot-pounds.
The hydraulic grapple option allows one person to pick up, load and drive posts. The Hornet comes standard with a flow control valve that allows the driver to be run on machines with hydraulic flows up to 30 GPM.
The toolless driving tool allows quick change, which means no hammer and punch needed to change driving tools. The Hornet comes standard with a domed driving tool, but flat driving tools as well as a flat RR tie tool — T8-RR only — can also be purchased.
An additional weight kit option allows operators to fine tune the weight of the driver to match the operating capacity of the vehicle. The kit includes 14 suitcase weights for a total of 616 pounds of additional weight. The full kit can improve driving speed by up to 50% over the base unit.
Other features include a post holder with tie-down locations for transporting posts and pipe; no setup required, it’s ready to go to work; and a one-year warranty.
The Stump Auger is a standard 2-inch hex auger attachment that planes away stumps without requiring large, specialized equipment. A threaded pilot digs into the stump and large cutting blades then shave the stump away. The large cutting blades are reversible for more cutting life.
The stump auger is available in 10- and 16-inch diameters. The 10-inch can run on auger units with 1,700 foot-pounds or more of torque and the 16-inch can run on auger units with 3,000 foot-pounds or more of torque. Complete stump removal is achieved by overlapping planing locations.
