This a simple but essential piece of kit when removing fences.
A two-part extractor device for Z-profile posts consisting of a base column with recesses at different heights and the actual lever for extracting the Z-profile post. The base column has a semi-circular base plate which is trod into the earth in front of the post to be extracted. Then mount the lever at a suitable height (angle to the base of column approximately 60°). The lever has a round steel lug that can be pushed into the Z-post's side holes. Once firmly in place, it acts as a counterweight to the base column so by pressing the lever down the Z-profile post is slowly pulled out of the ground. It's bright yellow to make the device easy to find when working in forests. Weight 5.5 kg.
Since Z-profile posts do not rot so they have to be removed when a tree nursery no longer requires protection from game. If the Z-profile posts are removed carefully, they are reusable. As a result this device makes great economic sense. Extract the posts carefully and reuse them when another fence is required.
