We are looking to purchase a tree pulling tool to lift buckthorn out and the below ones look reasonable and being considered. Anyone here use them? What do you like or dislike about it?

I've been battling Buckthorn for 20 years. All of those manual tools are labor-intensive and none of them will pull out large Buckthorn. Develop a long term eradication plan based on your situation then use a herbicide spray containing triclopyr. https://dnr.wi.gov/wnrmag/2017/10/Buckthorn.PDF

Thanks rakee. We bag the larger ones but the puller is of course for the smaller ones in our yard.

Sadly, we don't own a tractor but are looking for tool reviews as listed in the original post. Here is what they look like

You might was to consider "pallet clamp puller" for use with your Polaris if you need more power. Do a simple search but they are not for hand pulling.
