CHRISTIE Engineering is a small Australian family run engineering company, that prides itself on manufacturing niche original equipment manufacturer products for various industries including agriculture, mining and construction.
A Christie Engineering spokesperson said over the years, the company has designed and still manufactures soil sampling equipment, custom hydraulic drill rigs, and battery chargers.
“More recently, our revolutionary petrol post drivers which have been a game changer for fencing,” the spokesperson said.
“Our petrol powered Christie Post Driver was designed off the back of the original hydraulic driver.
“The original machine was a heavier and more expensive option.
“It required a separate power unit to operate.
“Our petrol driver evolved from original in-house prototypes that used electric jackhammer components coupled to small motors to what we entirely manufacture now in the thousands.
“Christie Engineering distribute Australia wide.
“We also export large quantities to distributors based in the USA and Europe as well as New Zealand, China and Korea, just to name a few.
“We use the strongest materials for every component without compromise, coupled to an ultra reliable Honda GX35 4-stroke engine on all models.
“Our machines have unfortunately been copied many times, but we strive to keep ahead of competitors by manufacturing the machines entirely in Australia.
The Christie Post Driver is available currently in two sizes.
The CHPD52 is capable of driving standard stock fence pickets and pipes up to 50mm diameter.
The CHPD78 is well suited to driving standard stock fence pickets and also larger pickets and pipe size up to 76mm diameter.
