According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2018 there were 34 incidents of sprains, strains, and tears per 10,000 full-time workers.

The median number of days out of work, as a result, was 11.

If you have ever worked in construction, then chances are you have had to pull out stakes or pins, and maybe even been part of a T-post fence removal. Unfortunately, some people sustain injuries from these activities.

When pulling out a stake, the most common injury is a laceration. This can happen when the stake is being removed and the person slips, falls, or is hit by the stake.

Another type of injury that can occur is a puncture wound. This happens when the person accidentally steps on the stake while they are removing it.

Lastly, you could also sustain a crush injury if the stake falls on you while you are removing it.

The statistics above are the result of hard work and accidents.

To prevent this from happening, we recommend using a mechanical tool that will do the work for you- no swinging hammers or pulling pins by hand necessary.

Would you be interested in a method that would help you avoid errors while also becoming more efficient? If so, keep reading.

IS A POST-PULLER THAT EASY TO USE?

Let's go over the factors that make a post-puller efficient.

First, the post-puller should be able to grip the stake tightly. This is important so that the post-puller doesn't slip and cause you to get injured.

Second, the post-puller should be able to remove the stake quickly and easily. If it takes a long time to remove the stake, you are more likely to get injured.

Third, the post-puller should have a handle that is comfortable to hold. This will help you avoid getting blisters or calluses on your hands.

Fourth, the post-puller should be made of durable materials. This is important because you don't want the post-puller to break while you are using it.

Lastly, the post-puller should be easy to store. This is important so that you can keep it in a safe place and not lose it.

Now that we've gone over the factors that make a post-puller efficient, let's talk about how to use one.

  • You need to find a good spot to grip the post-puller. The best spot is usually near the bottom of the handle.
  • You need to position the post-puller so that the teeth are facing the direction that you want to pull the stake.
  • You need to grip the post-puller tightly and start pulling. You may need to use some force to get the stake out.
  • Once the stake is out, you can release the post-puller and store it in a safe place.

Let's talk about some of the benefits of using one.

First, using a post-puller will help you avoid injuries. As we mentioned before, pulling out stakes can be dangerous. By using a post-puller, you can grip the stake tightly and pull it out without putting yourself at risk.

Second, using a post-puller will help you save time. If you are trying to remove a lot of stakes, using a post-puller will help you do it quickly and easily.

Third, using a post-puller will help you avoid damage to your property. If you are trying to remove a fence, for example, you don't want to damage the posts. By using a post-puller, you can easily remove the stakes without damaging the posts.

Lastly, using a post-puller is eco-friendly. When you use a post-puller, you are not using any chemicals or pesticides. This is important because it helps to protect the environment.

INCREASE IN EFFICIENCY

Post pullers or stake pullers are tools that let you use physics to your advantage. 

If you frequently find yourself needing to remove pins, stakes, or posts from the ground, a post-puller can help increase your efficiency.

These tools were designed to make work easier and more efficient by generating substantial gripping force and upward force. With these features, any removal job will be much simpler.

In addition to accelerating the process, they also reduce the workforce needed by half. With only one employee needing to remove posts instead of two, you can free up another employee to start working on another task.

Because it is precise, easy to use, and quick, the crew will be able to finish up and move on to the next phase much faster than with other methods.

FENCE REMOVAL MADE SIMPLE

How about those T-posts? They can always be trouble. Often they've been rammed in the ground down a good depth.

Not only do They usually sit so long that they rust, but the winged tip at the bottom makes it a time-consuming process to pull them out manually.

With our post-puller for fences, you'll be able to remove those T-posts more easily and safely than with conventional methods.

Safety should always be as easy as this

With all the benefits and no risk, grabbing a stake puller is an easy step in making your next project quick and profitable.

The construction industry utilizes this equipment for various reasons, including concrete pinning, sign removal, and fence demolition. Therefore, it is necessary to have this tool on any crew truck.

Picking the right stake puller may not seem like a big deal, but it can make or break your gardening experience.

Now that you've decided to save your back and time with the use of a stake puller, you should know that not all are made the same. In fact, some stake pullers are specifically made to pull concrete stakes, while others are made to pull large tent stakes. 

We want you to choose the right stake puller for what you need. Our company stocks a number of stake pullers and post pullers that allow one guy to get the job done.
