Haven't caught anything yet to test em....but I doubt there's an issue....and I can't compare to carrying rebar around, but the cable stakes and driver are very light and pretty compact....
You pulled Straight up on them, Right? It takes a little bit of a PULL using your legs but it works and if you think about it, all the videos shown of a horse or tractor pulling on a cable stake, the pulling is down side to side, NOT Straight up! All you have to do is pull Straight up, the right way and they pop right out of the ground, same thing as having a cable stake puller that is 4,5,6 feet long!
You are atleast carrying 1 piece of Rebar with you, I hope??
Take a piece of Rebar and pound out a Pilot Hole, then take your Cable Stake Setting Rod and put the duckbill or bullet end on the cable stake rod and push it down in the Pilot hole then pull up on it to set!
I ONLY Carry 1 piece of Rebar and it is to pound out a Pilot Hole!
It Keeps that cable stake rod in nice condition and makes it last longer!
I messed up 3 till a guy I know showed me that he makes a pilot hole and then pushs the cable stake down that pilot hole with the cable stake rod....no more breaking cable stake rods all up!
I had a buddy weld 2 of my cable stake setting rods with pieces of bolts that fit the duckbills...and I kept breaking the welded bolts off because of hitting rocks, till the other guy showed me the pilot hole with 1 piece of rebar deal!
