Since we are mud people, it's nice that it floats. lol I've been buried here before with a skid steer on tires on more than one occasion. No bottom to it this time of year until you hit rock at about 15' or so.

We mounted the hammer on the tractor fel with the rock auger on the three point to tackle this job. It preforms much better than I thought it would on the fel. You do have to have a spotter on the ground.

Do you have any luck drilling a pilot hole with the Beltec and then pounding it?

We've been using the 2" puffer bit and doing exactly that. Used to use a pneumatic drill and driver , still do sometimes where we can't get a machine to. The tractor mounted tools are easier on the body.
Fwiw ..we also keep the biggest rotary hammer drill Bosh makes and a gasoline driver on the truck. Works just fine for a few post when you run into that random ridge of rock. Also great for repairs etc.

Good to hear it works for you. We've tried to do that with a 4inch bit on the belltec then pound through it with the Shaver, never had much luck. We mainly use the rock spike now. Have found it much more effective.

We've found a rock spike to be pretty much useless in solid Rock. I sure wish it worked.
