Tools

 Hi-Lift Jack HL485 48″ – This jack is great for pulling out wooden posts, even if they have concrete on the bottom.  You will need a chain as well to wrap around the post.
 Maasdam Pow’R Pull PP100, Post Pull’R – This is the tool you want for removing T-Posts.  This was a game changer for me.  You can pull out T-Posts in about 10 seconds with this tool.
