James has qualified as a tradesman Engineer and has been employed in various engineering applications including years at sea as a marine engineer first officer.

Pursuing a desire to become self-employed, James purchased the business of King Hitter Post Drivers™Ltd, The main product consisted of a mechanical post rammer, fitted as a detachable implement and operating off the hydraulics of a tractor. Noticing the shortcomings of the original machine and James ability for lateral thinking outside the square has evolved the creation of the present day King Hitter™ hydraulic postdriver.
