    Default Home Shop Built T-Post Puller

    Home Shop Built T-Post Puller

    IM sure some of you have already built on of these before
    I ended up needing a t-post puller on a fencing job and land owner said it would not work
    Thinking it was one of those flimsy store bought that end up bending or breaking after a few t-post
    Made this out of some old thick wall SQ tubing I had setting around after pulling 56 t- post with he decided he wanted it so I told him I would make him one and so I was thinking maybe I could sell a couple well so I advertised them and now have quite a few
    Of them Sold. Any way thought I would share this simple idea with anyone who wants to make one best to use 1-1/2square tubing, 3 flat strap 6 in length, 4 flat strap 4x4 and 1-1/2 flat strap 6 in length all In 3/16ths thick mild steel.



    Right now I am working on a 3 point attachment for my ford 8N tractor that will help one person doing it alone pull larger wood post I think will work well in our general sandy loam area.

    Any suggestions are appreciated.

    Looks good.

    My old friend uses his high lift jack.
    He also uses it to pull up utility poles.

    I built one just a week ago. I've been using a chain on the end of it until I can get the hook piece made. can you give me the dimensions for that part that hooks the post? I have a picture of one that is a little heavier than yours but I don't want to make it any heavier than need be.
    Thanks

    Sometimes they can be used as anchors, so that you can chain down the bucket of your utility tractor, and lift the rear end off the ground...

    Finally - here's the pics. No paint yet but it's on the list. I thought it needed a little more support so I added the side brace. Thinking about adding a handle that will slip inside the larger tube to extend for more leverage. Some of the posts I tried pulling a few weeks ago took a little more than my 200+ lbs to lift out.
    Mind if I ask, what are you selling these for?
