"Driving ground rods with ease:"

From: Joel Smith  joels@silverlink.net

Ground rods are a pain in the butt. Especially if one is short or the earth is very rocky. If you have a hammer drill available, slip then empty head onto the ground rod. Tape up the trigger if there is no lock on it, and lead the end of the ground rod into place with the hammer drill on the other. The hammer drill does all the work for you and will save you so much time! If it is going down a bit slow - leave it. The handle on the hammer drill will prevent the ground rod from being driven in too far.
