rb, I don't know much about post drivers, but check out www.danuser.com. They have both hydraulic and PTO powered units, and a salesman assured me that my 27hp tractor could handle it just fine. Only trouble was that my bank account couldn't handle it. Your tractor should be great with the MD-H1 hydraulic or MD-6 PTO powered units.

We use a shaver, and as Bird so correctly pointed out, they are NOT cheap. Unless you have a LOT of posts to set it will be far cheaper to hire someone locally to do it for you. I don't know where you are but up here (Toronto, Canada) you can get posts set for as little as $2.50 per, so unless you plan setting upwards of 1,000 posts, look around for someone to do it for you. Best of luck.
