Home-Built Post Puller
It's simple in design but works better than anything I've ever tried," says Pat McGee, Eunice, La., about his home-built post puller that makes use of an old car bumper jack. It lets him jack posts out of the ground like jacking up a car.
  The post puller consists of a 1/4-in. thick steel plate that's 4 in. wide by 7 1/2 in. long with three holes cut into it. A 3/4-in. dia. hole at one end of the plate is used to pull fence rods or rebar stays. A cross-shaped hole is used for T-posts. A rectangular slot hooks onto the bumper jack.
  To pull out a T-post, McGee simply drops the plate over the post and then jacks it out of the ground.
  "It's as easy as jacking up a car," says McGee. "I thought of the idea one evening while I was trying to pull some T-posts on electric fence lines. The bumper jack I use is out of a 1988 Chrysler, but I think the same idea could be used with any type of jack."
