As you may have noticed above, the PD-1450 comes standard with manual tilt. Tilt is adjusted by a helper outside the skid steer, with use of a locking pin.
Get your posts straight, even on hills. A tilt option can be added to the PD-1600, PD-1850 and PD-2000. The tilt function can be controlled by a helper outside the skid steer, or can be wired so the skid steer operator can control tilt.
A planetary auger drive can be added to any unit with a 4, 6 or 9 inch auger bit. Both the planetary auger drive and tilt features can be added after purchase if desired.

Blue Diamond Post Driver
The Blue Diamond Post Driver is a well known brand of post driver, manufactured in Tennessee. Arguably the top manufacturer of Skid Steer Attachments in America, Blue Diamond engineers have perfected the hydraulic post driver.
Deliver up to 35 blows per minute with a full 40” drop. The additional 200lbs of weight available increase impact force by 60%. This sort of energy can drive posts up to 8.5”x9.25”.
Keep your employees safe. By enabling the skid steer operator to be able to lift posts with the grapple, and control tilt from the cab, you no longer need anyone assisting you from outside the skid steer when using a Blue Diamond Post Driver.
All Blue Diamond Post Drivers are going to come with a universal skid steer mount. However, you do have several options when ordering the post driver:
1. Basic Post Driver
2. Post Driver With Grapple
3. Post Driver With Tilt
4. Post Driver With Grapple and Tilt
The tilt option adds the ability to tilt the post driver up to 20 degrees left or right, making it much simpler to work on hills and uneven terrain.
The tilt function is controlled electrically from the cab of the skid steer, eliminating the need for an outside helper.
The grapple option is designed to eliminate the need for a helper outside the skid steer. With the grapple, you can pick up your post and position it as required. Once in position, the weight of the post driver is used to hold the post in place while the grapple is retracted.
Every Blue Diamond Post Driver comes standard with 300lbs of weight that provides 300 ft-lbs of energy. You can purchase an additional 200lbs to increase the impact energy to 1709 ft.-lbs.
Adapt easily to new jobs.
multiple strike plates are available to get the most versatility out of your Blue Diamond Post Driver. These include T-Post adapters, horseshoe stroke plates, guard rail strike plates and donut strike plates.
