12. Is a Pole Setter and a Post Setter the same thing?

Over time we have learned that folks use the terms interchangeably.

13. Are Solaris Pole Setters available for rent or demo?

Solaris Attachments does not currently offer any of our skid steer pole setters, mini excavator pole setters, etc. for rent.

We also do not offer any demo units. 

All variations of these excavator and skid steer pole setters and attachments are equipped with a universal quick-attach adapter. They can also be modified to fit different models of skid steers, tractors, excavators and telehandlers. Choose from a double-cylinder rotating base pole setter or a fixed non-rotating base pole setter. 

Each of our options are designed with two jaws that open and close independently, offering the operator a significant increase in safety and pole-handling security. Each jaw is also equipped with a rubber lining to protect the pole. The clamping is activated by two 2” X 6” cylinders and can be adjusted to regulate clamp pressure. Allof our excavator pole setters are delivered complete with wiring harnesses, spring hose mounts, and flush-faced couplers. The jaws open to 14 inches and close to three inches. Optional inserts are available to close the jaws down to 0 inches. Our excavator pole setter attachments can handle metal, wood, or plastic poles.

Overall, our pole setters are a valuable tool for construction crews, utility companies, and farmers, as they can help to save time and reduce the risk of injury associated with manual pole-setting methods. Contact us today with any questions or order your pole setter online today.

All of these attachments are 100% made in the US and are made for extreme use and durability.
