Opted for the vise/chisel/pop off method- still takes some time but they're coming off. Next time for a bigger section I'll remember to find the ones without the wings or to make the suggested tools. Almost thought pounding in upside down was a clever solution until I quickly realized the plates get in the way of the pounder. Anyway, thanks for all the input.

    You _could_ 'redneck' them. Put 'em in upside down leaving the plates on.

    You could buy them from Tractor Supply. I bought 250 last year and over half of them fell off before I got them in the ground. I had to tack weld them back on. They are much needed in this area. The best way to get them off is to lay them at a 90 degree angle over a log. Stand on the t-post and use a air hammer to force the plate off. Good luck.

    Use one of these air hammers to strip off the plate.

    I've always just used a 2-3lb hammer and just beat them over and off. Occasionally need heavy pliers or vice grips to finish it off.

    I've seen earless version at my local farm supply store.

    ask around, you can likely order an earless version for a few pennies less than the normal ones.
