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 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.

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.

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.

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 bigdoghorn Nothing better (for the price).
I had to replace my fence and I started with the removal of two posts using a shovel. NO WAY!!!! It was back breaking, time consuming, and most of the time results in a larger hole to back fill.
I found this post remover from HomeDepot and let me tell you, after removing a post manually this tool will make you laugh. It pulls the posts at ease. My old fence posts were wooden 4x4’s about 24 inches deep in concrete. Not a problem for this tool. It also left the holes just like they were so I didn’t have to mix a large amount of concrete.
Note: You will read posts about others adding an extension to the handle. I would NOT recommend it. That’s a great way to bend the handle, making the tool useless. If your weight alone is not enough then you have reached the max output for this tool. You are going to need to dig around the post a little to loosen it up, then try again. So far 3 of the 4 posts required NO help.
You will also need to buy a 5ft heavy duty chain with hook too.

The item came with no directions. Our Desert floor gets like poof powder but when it is hard it is like cement. I used the T Posts to keep the trees upright in our some time strong winds. We do get gusts around 100 miles an hour here in Pahrump Nevada. The puller did not work the best. The posts were like in cement and the would twist and bend. The puller kept flying loose. I had to drill holes in the T posts so I could put a ground ( Nail ) landscape timber spike though the center of the post and wedge it across the jaws of the puller. It was hard and I did bend two spikes.
The ground was just too hard and the posts were deep. Next was using a chain bout the stroke of the puller was small. I did drill 4 holes in each T post to pull them out. Now it is wall décor. The jaws on the puller were too smooth. No real gripping power. The posts would just slip. Wow would that smart.

Product was exactly as advertised. Worked perfectly. Hooked it onto a metal t-post, pushed down on the handle, and the post came straight up out of the ground with ease.
