    Default Concrete Plug and Fence Post Pulling Lever

    Scrap yard acquired eight foot I-beam, short piece of angle iron, and some beefy rebar, fashioned into a lever to pull fence posts.

    There are three chain stays welded to the top of the beam. On the jacking end another section of rebar acts as a jack stop.

    It's nice when the scrap comes sized perfectly for the application. I only had to cut the rebar pieces to length.

    The wooden cribbing was already on hand from the house jacking effort.

    Not complicated but certainly effective for removing some massive concrete fence post plugs.

    Photo #1. Full length of lever.
    Photo #2. Bottom of jack end with rebar jack stop.
    Photo #3. Lever foot/fulcrum end.
    Photo #4. Top of lever with three rebar chain stays.
    Photo #5. Lever set up and in-use.
    Photo #6. The most massive plug of the bunch pulled. I would guess around 300 lbs.
    Photo #7. Results of a long and physical day of effort.

    There are a myriad of ways to slay this dragon. The truck method may work on a ranch with plenty of level real estate, but on the sloped front lawn of a typical suburb?

    Just illustrating one of may ways to accomplish the task. Employ the one best suited to your particular situation.
