pulling blades and grips

After many years of using different products we settled on Triple D products available through Century Rain Aid now JD Landscapes. There are several blades to chose from depending on your machine and conditions. The best grip is their Maxi-Grip. This is tough stuff and performs better than anything else.

HBFOXJR,

I had been using the classic "chinese fingers" for the past several years. They were terrible. Last week I picked up a Tom King Harmony Quick Grip. It is amazing. Kind of pricy, but worth every penny.

I found that dirt followed by wear caused the King grip to lose some bite and release the pipe. We only used one.

The Maxi Grip wears well because the lead end is insdie the bullet. Also you can be flexible with pipe size like .75 to 1.25 inch pvc in one and 1.5" to 2" in another. Putting wire in with it is not a problem. Kind of expensive to play with this stuff but consider it at replacement time.

Harold,

Thanks for the info. I will look into the maxi- grip. Ive already seen the problems with pulling wire along with the pipe and you must have a King grip for each size of pipe. I just got another machine- I'll put one of those on it instead of another King grip.
