I need to put in a metal field gate (only 4ft) and a clipex end strainer to finish off a bit of fencing I've been doing but the ground where I need them to go appears to be only about 10" soil and then solid bedrock. :( Any ideas as to the best way to sink metal posts into/onto rock please?

If you have a decent generator or can get an electric supply near enough ,hire one of these
Hefty tool but got some thump

No electric, and up a big steep hill :(.
I know now why there are so many dry stone walls around my new place :) ... just a shame the previous occupants let them all fall down, would take me months to put them back together again. :(

it's still a strainer post so i'm guessing yer got a fence being strained off it
for a post in the fence jack hammer just a tad smaller than post and thump it in
end strainer ummmm if it's good hard bed rock a thumper and spike will do nothing know any one with a blasting ticket 1/4 -1/2 a stick of powergel will bust it up
kanga hammer good for makeing holes to put power gel in or wasteing time in areas yer can't blast
