I've been wondering about how you made out with the puller. Glad it's working out for you since you did take my prettiest one, LOL. I never did make another with round pipe.
"I wanted to make some heavy duty chain stake pullers, heavier than you can buy as far as I know.
$20 total for material at the welding shop, or $10/each.
I will add a heavy hook to the length of chain. The chain allows you to hook up to stakes without the bar being flat on the ground. With the puller started at hip height, you can use your hips to push and roll the chain stakes out of the ground rather than pulling straight up with you legs/back. Much easier.
If you need a lower grip, just roll the chain around the bar to shorten it up.
I'm really not in the business of making and selling these things for a profit. The only reason I sold to Long Beard and a few others is because they came to my house to shoot the bull. Shipping would kill me on these things.
Did you get that driver working for your stakes. Somebody told me that there are two different sized openings on those Fox Hollow Super Stakes. Maybe I sized my driver for the larger ones and you had the smaller ones??? Mine never get stuck in the head.
