The CERES Striker 295 Post Driver is an extremely capable and precise post knocker, as the TT tractor and telehandler model, or as the DG digger model to suit machines from 5 - 13 tons. With its extremely effective 295 kg free-falling hammer, operated by the unique three-pulley system, which allows superior hammer acceleration while simultaneously keeping a balanced and even load on the extending mast.
The marine double braid 22 mm rope, combined with the lightweight pulleys with central bearings, maximises the kinetic energy from the rope, for rapid weight acceleration, allowing the hammer's momentum to increase the upstroke for a greater chance of reaching terminal velocity on its free-fall to the post cap. The post cap is made from a heavy gauge S355 steel to allow strength with a small amount of flex, thus reducing the chance of fractures and shattering.
The cap is protected by three replaceable nylon strips, allowing the hammer momentum to be passed through the cap, compared to rubber which absorbs much of the force. The extending mast gives the hammer ample space above the post cap, even when the post cap is fully raised, with other benefits being a lower centre of gravity and reduced height for transport, as well as giving the operator greater control over the power.
All of the above advantages give the Striker 295 the ability to drive posts through hardcore and tree roots with ease, in many cases without the need for a rock spike, saving time and reducing costs, making this the ideal machine for construction, farmers, forestry, maintenance teams, contractors and more.
