- An article taken from Kencove farm services (Kencove.com) points out that when the post is rammed into the ground it creates what scientists call hydraulic suction around the post. The soil is immediately mechanically strengthened by a reduction in soil porosity, and an increase in soil compaction, thus the surrounding natural ground pressure is used to secure the post that means the tougher the terrain the tighter the post.
- It was found that it takes approximately 16 times more lifting tension to remove a post that has been driven into the ground with a 'King hitter' than a bored and tampered post.
- Watching one of these weapons work I can believe so
Conclusion is, if you're serious about fencing the 'King hitter'; is my weapon of choice - so bang 'em in, dont bore 'em in!
