Does anyone have any advice or tips on how to remove berkshire earth anchors from the ground so they can still be used again hopefully? I am looking at switching some traps to a new farm and was looking to try and not have to buy new earth anchors.
Im using berkshire regular anchors. I welded a 4'-5'bar with about a 6" pc. of angle iron on the bottom. I slide the bar through the loop on the berk anchor and pull like a mother. They come out, then i straighten the anchor. I love that much better than the rebar.
FYI most regular berks will break where the cable hooks to them on the second time you straighten them...check your heads well....been there done that..
They are truly "disposable" as far as I'm concerned.
I watched a buddy of mine trap along side me one winter using Berks, while I was hammering in and ripping out chaiined Superstakes.
It was almost painful watching him struggle with inferior equipment. Drivers slipping off, tips snapping off, cable fraying, cable snapping, and bent anchors when retrieved.
i use the same puller on my berkshires.
this is the setup i use,i've went to the heavy duty berkshires instead of these soft ground ones.i found the superstakes liked to stick on the driver,got tired of pulling the driver to beat the stake end off to try again!!
