Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nonsheep Heavy Duty Puller! Easy to Use!
Bought this puller to help manage my fence line. It arrived quickly through the mail. Wow I wasn't expecting such a heavy duty tool. It pulled the 6.5 foot posts with ease. I did have to place a 2x6 maybe 8 inched long under the foot when I used it in the Clay/Gumbo soil I have all over the property. It can be used to pull wood posts & even posts that have been cemented. Was glad I bought it & you will be too.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by studio246 Read if you're pulling 4x4 wooden posts
The Post Pull'R is a great product, but it is not ready to pull 4x4 fence posts right out of the box. The instructions only cover pulling smaller, metal fencing posts out of the ground with its built-in "jaw."
If you're pulling wooden fence posts set in concrete out of the ground, there's a bit more to it (as I found out through experience!) So before you consider returning it (or giving it a bad rating), here is some "missing information" for pulling 4x4s out.
1) First, you'll need to purchase a short length of sturdy chain (about 18-20") and a strong S-hook, if you don't already have them.
2) Then, dig around the post enough to expose a few inches of the concrete it's set in.
3) Pour water all around the hole and let soak, digging more and wiggling the post to let the water seep down around the post/concrete.
4) Wrap chain around post, securing with the S-hook and, with Post Pull'R's lever arm in the fully-up position, attach the chain/S-hook to Post Pull'R's hook.
5) When the post is sufficiently loose, set Post Pull'R's "foot" on a 2x4 or other solid surface at the hole's edge. Push down the lever to raise the post out. You may need to repeat this step, lowering the chain and pulling down a few times to fully extract the post. You should then be able to lift the post out manually the rest of the way.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Veeter Worked great for me
I looked at a t-post puller at Harbor Freight, but theirs got bad reviews due to cheap construction that caused it to fail on first use. This puller was was listed for the same price and had good reviews and noted solid construction.
I pulled 25 post at my farm along a hedge row with cedars and wild rose - some of the post had clearly been in the ground for quite a few years - this puller did the trick. No issues. It took some maneuvering in some spots due to cedar limbs and rose bushes, but , in most cases, it pulled through roots and removed the post. I would recommend buying this.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jray Surprisingly effective!
If I'm honest, I was skeptical about buying this, but since it was reasonably priced we decided to give it a go. Good thing, because I was quite surprised at the effectiveness of the post puller. We had roughly 375 ft. of 4 ft. chainlink fence to remove from our backyard and except for the double-wide gate posts that are larger than the included claw, the Post Pull'R was able to remove everything! The posts that we had some trouble with (and there weren't many) we soaked the ground with about 1-2 gallons of water making sure not to soak the ground beneath the puller, waited about 5-10 minutes for the water to penetrate and pulled with ease, concrete and all.

This is a very well made product. I purchased one made in China that worked for about 5 easy post pulls, and then the metal fatigued and broke. This model can withstand the strain from difficult to remove posts.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lonnybird Even an old grandma can use it!
Right out of the box, I took it to the field and within 20 minutes had the job done (small field, some 15 metal posts). Exceeded my expectations! Very easy to use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FenceDude Tip for pulling 4x4 wood posts
I owned a fencing company for 15 years and have pulled thousands of posts- this Maasdam puller definitely does the job!
*One tip for all wooden posts is to hit the sides of the post with a slegdehammer, a few inches above the ground line. It doesn't take a big swing at all, just make sure the face of the sledgehammer hits squarely on the post. Usually 2 knocks on 2 sides of the post will loosen it enough to slide the post right out, even without using the puller. If it's still being stubborn, wrap a chain around the post, attach to the puller, and pop it out.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WellsFest works well at a good price
I had a poorly designed and/or constructed t-post puller from a discount tool retailer that failed right out of the box.
For just a little more money from Home Depot, I got a puller that works well and is durable. The puller easily extracts t-posts and u-posts with little effort.
Another vendor had post pullers listed at twice the price but did not stock them as he thought using a tractor with front loader and length of chain was a better solution. I doubt anyone could pull a lot posts on tractor quicker than one could with this simple, efficient and durable puller form Home Depot.
