Tools Make Post Pulling Easy
The first of two tools is the Yank-E-Z. It's a two-section tool which fits on standard "T" steel posts and is held together by a slide-on clamp. To use, slide a piece of 2-in. dia. steel pipe on the post, clamp on the Yank-E-Z, and then use the pipe to pound up on the Yank-E-Z to drive the post out. You can also use the device to drive in posts.
Volkmann's second post pulling tool is the Hydraulic Adapter. It fits on the tractor's Cat. 1 3-pt. arm, allowing you to lift a post without getting off your tractor. You position the C-shaped portion on the post, fitting it between the post's teeth. As you lift the 3-pt. arm, the steel post wedges in the adapter and lifts out. The adapter fits on the post from either side or the front.
The Hydraulic Adapter and the Yank-E-Z sell for $24.95 each, plus $3.00 for shipping.
