    Let me just start off by saying you guys are sick for checking out my post!!! Now, has anyone ever used this to extract their rig? wyeth scott power puller Seems to be a little more usefull than a hi-lift but a lot cheaper than a winch... just curious... oh and can't forget to ask about these sliders/steps [​IMG] the sliders are by echobit.
    Thanks /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif

    Yeah I can't afford a winch so I carry a come-along or 2. They work well as long as you don't have to pull something very far. Helps too carry an extra cable or chain as well because most of them only have about 10 ft of cable. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    the puller works fine, but you cant really use straps. You have to use some static straps if you can find it, or wire rope. THe tug straps we normall use stores energy, and will be worthless when you trying to deal with only 10-15 feet to work with.
