5.0 out of 5 stars Concrete fence post extraction helper, 9 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Silverline 633957 Cable Pulley Set 180 kg (Tools & Hardware)
I bought this pulley set to assist in the removal of seven 2.1m (L) x 100mm section concrete posts that had been holding my back garden fence up for more than 36 years. A modern day slotted post weighs in the region of 45kg and with the attached concrete foundations, the total must have been close to 100kg. Once each post had been broken free of the soil by means of two hydraulic bottle jacks,Silverline 427711 2 Tonne Hydraulic Bottle Jack; I was able to lift the post clear of the hole, using the pulley set tied to the top rungs of an aluminium ladder, arranged over the hole forming an `A' frame. The pulley set performed beautifully, although Health and Safety might have had something to say about my `A' frame (needs another person to hold the ladder). The pulley set comes with two elongated links, which can be used to facilitate attachment of chain, rope etc. to the pulley fittings. Tips - when lifting heavy items, as the rope is too slim for hands to grip directly, it can be wrapped around a suitable piece of wood to use as a handle. Also when pulling the top and bottom pulley sets back together after use, it helps to keep them under a small amount of tension to prevent tangles occurring. This is an incredibly useful piece of equipment at a very reasonable price.
