After pulling hundreds of posts I haven’t missed or broken a single post. Pour a quart of water at the base of each post to soften the soil and lubricate the pull, or pull posts after a rain. Four stars only because I had to add a larger foot to keep it from sinking in.
Worked OK, considering...

I bought this to remove about 100 old T-posts. T-posts were well rusted, and the wire between the posts were rusted to the point the wire was barely there. I could pull out about a 1/3 of the T-posts with this, and the remaining ones wouldn't budge. I was disappointed. Then I went back with my tractor to try and remove the remaining ones. When the tractor had problems removing the posts (most of the posts were causing the back end of the tractor to lift off the ground, and 4 of the posts ended up shearing off below ground level), I didn't feel as bad that a $40 puller didn't work on the posts.
Not enough force

I bought this t-puller for some 10 year old buried t-post with a fence on them. I thought I would practice pulling some t-post I buried last year and it worked fine. But when it came to the old buried post they did not budge. I weigh 180 and put all of my weight on the end and just bounced until the t-puller came loose and I ended up on my butt. I'm going to try extending the end with some steel bar to see if I can increase the leverage but I'm not holding out hope.
