unit speeds alignment; move the machine, not the tractor.”
Adding a SideShift unit to either our MultiSett or TeleSett Digger
Driver is the total solution for flexible, fast, high-capacity post
setting. The benefits of the SideShift are obtained both when building new fence and while
repairing existing fence.
The SideShift option mounts the DiggerDriver sideways
with respect to the tractor. Hydraulics allow the operator to slide (side shift) the Digger Driver for alignment,
rather than moving the tractor. The extended range of travel is 30
inches, and the driver center would then be positioned 48 inches from the tractor drawbar.
When retracted, the
tractor can be driven beside an existing fence
with the Digger Driver retracted away from posts and wires. When fully extended
(side-shifted), the DiggerDriver is outside the tractor's rear wheel and positioned
in the fenceline. After setting the new post,
the DiggerDriver quickly retracts back inside the tractor wheel, and the
tractor can again drive straight down the fence line.
When building new
fence or setting guard-rail posts, the side-shift’s 30-inches of
travel allows the DiggerDriver to be accurately
positioned at the push of a hydraulic-control lever. The SideShift speeds fencing by greatly reducing the time
required for exact alignment.
