FAQ

SHOW ANSWER

Why is the post so firm when driven by a Kinghitter?

The technique is what our scientists call “Hydraulic Suction.” As the post is driven into the ground, the ground immediately around the post is mechanically strengthened by a reduction in soil porosity and an increase in soil compaction. Thus the surrounding ground pressure will secure the post up to sixteen times firmer than a similar Bored and Tampered Post.

What can I do when I remove the Kinghitter from my 3 point linkage?
