Wheatheart Announces the Release of its Farm Duty Post Pounder Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada- February 9th, 2010- Wheatheart Manufacturing (Wheatheart) announced the release of its Farm Duty Post Pounder today.

Wheatheart has established itself as a Western Canadian market leader in grain handling accessories and fencing equipment. With the release of its Farm Duty Post Pounder, Wheatheart hopes to expand its customer base.

Ease of use was a key factor considered by Wheatheart engineers when designing the new Farm Duty Post Pounder. “Our Farm Duty pounder features a unique pivot system with tight tolerances to eliminate excessive movement and ensure maximum force is transmitted to the post”, explains Wheatheart Manufacturing Engineer, Derrick Lee. “The new pounder is built with a rigid structure to ensure that pounding energy is transmitted effectively to the fence post.”

In addition to the features mentioned by Lee, the Farm Duty pounder’s wide spaced legs provide the operator both ease of use and stability during hook up, disconnect, and storage. The hammer style with a large face allows pounding on either side of the fence and easy post alignment.

Wheatheart has taken the proven features of its High&Heavy Hitter line, like hydraulic post hugger technology and incorporated it into the new Farm Duty Post Pounder. “With no springs there will be minimal maintenance required and that’s something we know our customers will appreciate in the Farm Duty pounder design,” states Wheatheart General Manager, Craig Nimegeers.

The Farm Duty Post Pounder by Wheatheart also features a transport bar to eliminate cylinder movement during transport and storage and a hammer box with the option to add ballast to increase impact force. The Farm Duty pounder rollers contact the front and rear of the post to eliminate friction between the hammer and the post.

The official launch of the Wheatheart Farm Duty Post Pounder will take place in Louisville at the National Farm Machinery Show, February 11-14, 2010.
