Why You Should Use Petrol Post Drivers for Your Marquee Set Up

If you’re an events contractor or marquee installer, adding an Easy Petrol Post Driver to your arsenal will help you save time, money and manpower when an outdoor event requires a marquee set up.


When it comes to setting up event marquees, efficiency, speed and reliability are paramount. With sunnier days soon on their way, so is the prime season for outdoor events like weddings, parties, festivals and corporate gatherings, which means that your workforce needs to be properly equipped to erect marquees swiftly, safely and securely.

This is where the Easy Petrol Post Driver Marquee Machine comes in. Petrol-driven marquee post drivers offer a proven alternative to traditional non-mechanical methods of driving marquee pins, such as using sledgehammers or post rammers, which involve arduous manual labour and often requires multiple workers to get the job done in a timely manner.

Let’s explore some of the top reasons why opting for an Easy Petrol Post Driver is the smart choice for your marquee set up to ensure smooth operations and successful outdoor events.


Top Reasons to Choose a Petrol Post Driver to Set Up a Marquee


Powerful and efficient when driving marquee pins

Petrol-driven post drivers pack a punch, offering unparalleled force and allowing you to drive pins into the ground quickly and effortlessly, especially when compared to manual methods. The high impact hammer action of our Marquee Machine with 1720 BPM ensures that posts are driven flush into the ground easily for maximum safety and minimum trip hazards. Its exceptional power also means that it’s able to handle various soil types and ground conditions with ease.

This safe and easy to use marquee tool delivers an impressive full 8-hour day performance and only requires a single operator to get the job done, significantly minimising downtime and saving on both labour and costs. Using a marquee post driver also prevents the user from having to bend over – your crew and their backs will thank you!


Portable and adaptable to every type of marquee pin

One of the key advantages of a petrol post driver is its portability. Unlike cumbersome hydraulic machines that require a separate power source, petrol models are lighter weight self-contained units, making them easy to transport and manoeuvre around event sites. Whether you're setting up marquees in a sprawling field or a compact urban space, post drivers offer the flexibility and mobility needed to get the job done.

The Petrol Post Driver Marquee Machine is adaptable to every marquee pin size up to 60mm, including mushroom heads, double mushrooms, hook pins or rebars, both straight or bent over, and can be driven in at any angle - perfect for if you’re working in tighter spaces.

At Petrol Post Driver, we also make and provide a custom adapter to fit your marquee pins as standard. Your adapter will be just the right size, giving you the best control over driving them in straight and to the correct depth.


Super speedy to save time and maximise productivity

Time is of the essence when it comes to setting up for an event, and petrol-driven post drivers deliver rapid results. Our Marquee Machine post driver boasts an average of just 10 seconds per marquee pin, even into hard summer festival grounds, enabling your team to complete marquee installations in record time and focus on other crucial aspects of event planning and equipment assembly. Whether you're racing against the clock to beat inclement weather or meeting tight deadlines, a petrol post driver for marquees will help you stay ahead of schedule and ensure timely event delivery.


Reliable and durable machinery

From weather to last-minute plan changes, outdoor events can be unpredictable, and you need equipment that you can rely on to perform under pressure no matter the situation. Petrol post drivers are built to withstand the rigors of frequent use in demanding environments, ensuring reliable performance when you need it most.

From its robust yet lightweight construction to its easy start Honda GX35T 4-stroke engine, our marquee pin driving machine is designed for durability, providing peace of mind and long-term value for your investment. Petrol Post Drivers also come with a 3-year warranty for added peace of mind.

With proper maintenance and care, an Easy Petrol Post Driver will continue to deliver exceptional results event after event. You can send your Petrol Post Driver back to us for its annual service once the season is over, or you can buy our Petrol Post Driver service kit and carry it out yourself to keep your machinery operating at its best for years to come.


Cost-effective marquee tool for contractors

While petrol-driven post drivers do require an initial investment, their long-term cost-effectiveness makes them a wise choice for events contractors, marquee installers and even events management companies looking to cut costs without compromising on safety or efficiency.

On the face of it a petrol post driver is pricier than non-mechanical methods of pin driving, but in the long-term the ability to entrust one or two workers with the job of driving pins at just a fraction of the operating time, versus potentially needing several workers when using the slower, traditional sledgehammer method, means that this machine offers significant savings of time, effort and money.

When it comes to setting up marquees for events, choosing the right equipment makes all the difference. An Easy Petrol Post Driver Marquee Machine offers unmatched power, portability and reliability, enabling your team to complete marquee installations quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively. Invest in a petrol-driven post driver and you'll not only enhance your marquee installing capabilities, but you’ll also streamline your contractor operations, keeping both you and your clients happy.
