About Us

In 1997 Kevin was inspired by a desire to improve versatility and safety in the post driving market. Traditional post drivers can only be operated from the rear of a tractor and incorporate a potentially dangerous exposed driving weight.


So after a year of development in 1998 the Postpuncher was born.


He at Chalke Valley Engineering we recognised that many of today’s farmers and contractors had a requirement for a safer post driver that could be mounted on telehandlers, loadalls, back hoes, mini excavators and skidsteers. With its enclosed driving weight and universal mounting option, Postpuncher has met and exceeded these demands. Designed, manufactured and distributed by Chalke Valley Engineering, Postpuncher is a unique and highly innovative post driver made to the highest quality standards using British products and British steel. "The most versatile, effective and durable post driver in the world. We are proud of our product and its impeccable safety record. There is nothing like it on the market today."
