Our Protech has clocked up 700 hours in just over 12 months, so an oil change and some TLC was in order as the ground has been harder than usual these last months.
Then off for 1200m more stock fencing at Noremead (remember the pictures with the goats?) – and some repairs.

Here we are using our versatile Protech Evo 2 self-propelled post driver to create 10″ holes x 1 meter deep in solid chalk for steel gate posts.
Our task was to create one meter deep holes for metal gate posts for Wessex Water in Durrington, just north of Amesbury. With this piece of kit, we punch a hole in the ground, put in the post and add the concrete – “Simples” (and no digging, and no soil to take away !)
We do all sorts of different kinds of fencing and gates, not just security… Take a look at our fencing page here.
This job was for 800 m of demarcation fencing for a major utility company in Darrington.
We erected 800 m of posts and single blue rope to act as demarcation fence for new pipeline project for Wessex Water at Durrington. We did this in just one day; with another 2000m to follow in September.
Our new piece of kit has arrived complete with whistles and bells!
It’s the Protech Evo 2 4×4 towable, ‘self-propelled’ post driver/tracked knocker, 300g hammer, with winch, 2 Rock spikes blade, rock drill, telemast, big weight and self- levelling system, 400mm wide tracks slew and extending tracks.
So, perfect for steep terrain and wet ground and will make light work of any difficult ground.
This is Protech’s You Tube video.
And the Protech helped make much easier work here, for example, erecting a 300m post and rail fence around a new house in Beckhampton on recently spread topsoil. Two weeks in and you’ll notice it’s not quite as shiny as when delivered!
Protech EV02 tracked self-propelled post driver – steep or wet ground conditions will be helped by the upgrading of our fencing machinery with the addition of a tracked self-propelled post driver from Protech, called the EV02. This will be a full spec machine able to carry posts and wire and make no mess or access steep terrain.
Currently being built and will be with us by the start of December this year.
