So what you really want to hear is I told you so. Ok so you did .
They work good . Nice to have enough pull to not have to re hitch like I was having to do with the comealongs .
Quick learning curve after getting poped in the arm . Better than the mouth. Make dang sure both dogs are latched before you let go of the handle !

Naw. Just like to hear honest outside opinions. Fencing is a good way to get new front teeth if you ain’t careful.

Not to fire this back up. What kind of comealongs are y'all using?
You should have about 12' of cable.

All comealongs I know of are rated on a double line pull . So your 12’ of cable just became 6’ .

That rating is also on a rolling load, if I’m not mistaken.

That's what I thought your using a double cable. Through it away and buy a maasdan power pull. Stock 12' cable. And you'll bend the handle on your strainright trying to out pull it. At least i did. Everything in one package. Truth is either one is plenty strong. A GOOD comealongs is a superior tool. I've used both , and I don't sale either... fwiw

For what it’s worth, you don’t have a Strainrite boundary strainer. You have a 502 strainer. Pretty big difference in the two. The handle on the Boundary Strainers don’t bend. (Dancing jalapeño) And yes, I have some good comealongs that ain’t for sale. Still have some freebies though. Lol

We use the masdaam and they work well, but dont last very long. We probably go through 15 or 20 a year. Key is to keep them oiled.

They will outpull a regular chain grab, I actually prefer the come-along for long runs of barb.

The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.
