Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jdtree A solid piece of equipment
Ordered two of the Big Red 4-ton come alongs to help in bringing down some dead trees. Ratchet teeth fit poorly and within an hour needed constant attention to make sure they seated properly in the gear. I worked the things pretty hard, but i don't think pushed them past their 4-ton limit. Nuts started popping off the bolts. Within three hours, one of the winches failed. I picked up a 2-ton model made by Maasdam. It is the better engineered piece of equipment all the way around. I am much more comfortable cranking the 2-ton Maasdam to its limit than I am using the 4-ton Big Red at even a fraction of its load.

This is quality made tool. It is convertible from a 1 ton puller wither 12 feet of cable to a 2-ton puller with 6 feet of cable by hooking the cable through the included snatch block back onto the puller. No tools are necessary to change the setup.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Scott Quality apparent from the first use.
This is a "real" tool. For home use this is a solid cable puller with all of the details that make a tool truly useful. The rachet mechanism workes smoothly. The cable, pulleys and hooks have the kind of heft and construction that generate confidence when moving a heavy load. Most notably the controlled release of tension worked safely and securely with a heavy load attached.
I bought the puller to move a large granite slab (2 ft. x 8 ft. x 8 inches deep) that had fallen off the top of a stone fence in my front yard. The puller lifted the slab with no problem.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MIkeS really fine tool!
This is NOT a toy- it's the real thing and operates exceptionally well. It's rugged, very well made and easy to work. Love the choice between 12' of travel at 1 ton or 6' at 2 ton and have used each setup in situations when they were most appropriate. In these days of cheap look alikes it's nice to get something so solid and well designed. I would absolutely recommend this product to a friend.

It is a rare thing when a product exceeds your expectations. This come-a-long is extremely well made and smooth to operate. I killed an inferior unit pulling stumps and went on a recommendation to get a Massdam, it was good advise. I worked it extremely hard without any glitches at all. Lifetime warrant too!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Owner Good quality product
I paid more for the Maasdam because of the positive reviews and warnings about competing products. I haven't used it much, but so far it appears to be very well made.
