    I don't mend fences, but realize finding anchor points for a come along is something ya gotta bring with you, it won't be out there. This tool would save a lot of steps, including jacking the handle of winch or puller.

    I learned a long time ago that the best way to mend, repair or replace a fence was to buy the materials doze the fence row, and shame the neighbor into doing the job. Then I can't complain if the fence is not done to my liking since I didn't spend my time replacing the 2900 feet of fence. I wonder how I am going to fair when I decide to replace the 3600 feet of highway frontage fence?

    That'll be handy, might wake up to a herd of brisket in the kitchen. I've heard they don't travel light, toting steak, ribs, chuck etc.
