    240ish.... Why should I bother. You will just go on a tangent on how I should just drop 6 grand to buy one because it's the proper tool.....

    Some of them can't be ground. Pulling is my only option.

    If the area is So tight it can't be ground. What makes you think pulling, yanking is a good SAFE option?

    Pulling away from the foundation, Vs grinding towards it.

    Yes man rent the grinder. If you are worried about profit margins. Don't bid jobs you can't readily handle.

    This one is OK. It's the smaller ones I can't get. That was the idea of the winch. If it would work. Seems it won't.
