Our DriveTight Post gives you extra ground anchorage with our anchoring lugs.

More Ground Anchorage For A Stronger Strainer Post

When it comes to end assemblies, you want something that’s built to last. Rotech Rural’s DriveTight anchor lugs give our posts 8 times more ground anchorage than regular posts, so they can handle any kind of soil (even deep black soils), flood-prone areas or rocky terrain. You can trust that your end assemblies will stay put, no matter the conditions. Plus, the larger ground anchorage can support heavier strains without shifting or leaning. With DriveTight, you can have peace of mind knowing your fence is solid and secure.


Get your end assembly installed faster and easier. Our patent protected Drive-Tight end assemblies are easy for anyone to install, take less than 15 minutes to install, and give you a neat & tidy finish. 

How Important Is Your Time? 

If you are looking for an easy and quick to install end assembly kit, then our kits are perfect for you. Our drive tight post end assembly kits take less that 15 minutes to install!

Our unique Drive-Tight strainer post design and assembly kit can save you hours of work. You could easily do 10 to 30 assemblies in a day compared to the average 2 or 3.If you only have the one assembly to install, then you can spend the rest of your day doing something else that will make you more money. (Or you could enjoy the day sitting on your verandah with a cup of coffee.)

Our kits are all made from steel and are either hot dipped galvanised, galvabond or stainless steel. This means they are termite proof, fire proof and long lasting.

All of our Drive-Tight posts are 100NB. You can choose between a 40NB stay (good general purpose stay), or a 50NB stay (more heavy duty).


Do you want the ease of driving a star picket and the versatility of a round steel post? Our Drive-Tight steel fence posts allow you to hand drive your post without needing a pneumatic driver.

It drives in straighter than a round post, yet still offers the versatility of a round post. You are not restricted by 90 degrees like you are with an angle post.

If you have a machine, the Drive-Tight post drives a lost easier and quicker due to the picket base, resulting in less wear and tear on your machine.

To ensure that it is secure in the ground, we have included two lugs at a 40 degree angle that allows you to drive two half star pickets at an angle into the ground. These three points of anchorage gives you an extra strong strainer post.

Combined with our strainer assemblies, the entire end assembly can be installed in under 15 minutes. It is the quickest end assemblies available. Don’t believe us? Check out the video below.

Why Choose a Floating Footplate?

A strong and reliable fence is crucial for the safety and security of your livestock and property and the strength of your fence starts with your end assembly.

An end assembly with a floating footplate can reduce post pull-out, maintain tension for longer, and perform better in challenging soil conditions. It ensures the load from your fence ends up at the post where it should be.
