Post Puller (Ray E. Watkins Jr.)

Daniel Pavlas, Needville, Texas, has an easy way to pull wooden posts from the ground. First, he wiggles the post loose. Then, he wraps a length of chain around the bottom of the post and over the top of an old wheel rim. He hooks the chain to a tractor or a truck. Pulling forward, the post rises out of the ground.
