Tuf-Tug Capacity Cable Hoist/Puller - 4000 Lbs.
Good strong tool
This come a long is one of the most heavy duty ones I have used in a long time. This tool has helped me many times with pulling trucks out and help pull timbers together. It is a very well built and strong tool.

tuff tug come-a-long
This is a powerful tool. I used it to help me in cutting some rather large trees on my property. Some of the trees were leaning the wrong way so this tool was used to correct the direction of where the trees were to fall. My only problem with the tool is that the racheting mechanisum would switch direction on me when I was tighting the slack on the cable. It wouldn't do it while I was tightening but rather when I was returning to the opposite end of the spool to pull more slack out of the cable. Not dangerous but a bit annoying.

Let's Hear it for Mechanical Advantage!
I bought this to pull over a tree that was leaning over my back yard. It worked flawlessly and saved me at least $500 to pay a tree service to do essentially the same thing.
The unit is exceptionally well built and there is no give in any of the components. The ratchet mechanism seems solid and all of the moving parts do so freely. Even tugging around a 60-foot tree, I never had to strain overmuch.
If I had any complaint, it's the one-page instruction manual, half of which is a parts list. None of the (admittedly few) controls are labeled, and the drawings are both tiny and out of context. If you already know how to use one of these, you'll be fine.

Tuf-Tug Capacity Cable Hoist/Puller — 4000-Lb.
I use this product to move some boulders dug out from the ground in my 7 acre property in various landscaping and contruction projects. When I first reveived the item, I have a simple issue on unreeling the cable but a call to the technical support solved the problem. Since then the product has been performing for my intended purposes.

This puller does it all
I have not found a lifting or pulling project that this cable hoist can't handle! From pulling out stumps to draging boulders to the side of my property, this piece of gear has never failed to what I need to do, and better than pullers from national hardware chains that cost more.

I've had several hoists, and this model with the additional pulley tops them all. Works great for log felling and support of my 21.5 sailboat

A must have for falling and trimming trees
This is a must have tool for working on your trees/timberland and around the farm. It is well engineered and constructed with a rugged ratcheting mechanism. This work horse does the job as good or even better than some of my more expensive hoist/pullers which are heavy and difficult of one person to handle especially overhead.

A real back saver
This "come-along" is extremely well built, and is priced right. I use it in conjunction with chains or nylon straps when falling trees to ensure a safe drop.
Sometimes wedges aren't enough. I've also used it when working on heavy machinery, installing fences and building sheds. So far It hasn't been used to pull the truck out of the mud.
The teeth on the gear of this hoist are very deep and sturdy. The handle is well designed, and the cog works easily and flawlessly. I'm glad I purchased this work saver, and wish I had done so long ago.
