    Why not by a cheap post puller.. or even better… drill holes in them and just use a regular old car jack.. and a lot faster than trying to get that truck to maneuver around all over.. ya can’t use that truck everywhere

    This will work on wooden posts set in dirt but what about 3″ or 4″ steel posts set in concrete. Be prepared to do some front and side digging! Not near as easy. Be careful! Do not get in the way of that stretched out chain if it snaps!

    i know a way better way. Get a car bumper jack and chain. Much faster and safer.

    I recommend you use a towing strap instead of a chain. You don’t want to be standing anywhere near a chain when you find the weakest link.

      I think a tow strap has more stored energy (elasticity) if it snaps.

    Grandad used horses, not a truck, and a short 4×4 instead of a spare wheel.

    I use a small A frame made of steel with a long heavy bar balanced on top , a strap around the post. Put the A frame against the post wrap the strap around the bottom of the post put bar through other end of strap and pry down on the long end of the bar. Doesn’t take a lot of effort and can put wood, metal, round, square, any kind of post, in the dirt or concreted in place. Pulls the concrete up too.

    I’ve used this method to remove a concreted in steel post.
    I used a bare rim and wrapped the chain all the way around the rim.
    It worked fine.

    These techniques all require that the fence post is strong enough to take the pulling force without a failure. Usually when I remove a fence post it is because it is already degraded to failure.

    This is ridiculously dangerous. You can still see the tire squat under pressure. Wiggle the post a little too much or try this on uneven ground and that tire becomes a missle. Not to mention, a little too much enthusiasm by the truck driver can get fingers crushed or shoot the post out of the ground. Stop promoting jack-leg life hacks that will get people hurt or killed.

      Not everyone is the owner of a tractor with a front end loader.just stay out of the line of fire or pinch points. Besides if you’re a farmer, you know that farm accidents are the number one cause of death of any industry. Just always be as careful as you can.

    I’ve always used a sharp spade shovel and a short piece of 2×4. Drive the spade into the post and pry up using the 2×4 for leverage. An inch at a time till it breaks free is all that’s needed. Time: 3-4 minutes.
