Driving and Removing Support Posts
http://www.durgan.org/ShortURL/?LPTMU 23 November 2008 Garden Posts

Various posts are required in a garden. Some are permanent and other are used for the season. Depicted is a simple straightforward method of driving into the ground and also removing. The procedure is also just as applicable to wooden stakes.

Clever!
Last time I removed some t-bars it took forever and a great deal of elbow grease.
Will remember this one. Thanks!

Clever!
We used a jack and piece of chain wrapped around the t-bar to achieve the same result, but I think Durgan's is probably easier.

I've wanted one of those post drivers for some time now. So far tho, my dismay at the amount of 'stuff' I've already got stored around here has overcome my desire for another tool. lol

The vise-grips are a great idea! :)

I must admit that the manual post driver is not often used, but when needed it it a godsend, particularly on posts that are tall. I bought mine several years ago on the spur of the moment, and wouldn't be without it now.
