A long time ago I fished crab in AK and believe in using the right equipment to get the job done!
This unit is outstanding and arrived in excellent condition right out of the box.
I would recommend it to all my sport fishing friends.
I've been out with this a few times. Pulls very smoothly. I'm very happy with this purchase. would recommend it to anyone who wants to make a set-up for pulling up traps.
About a year in use now and it's better than expected, no failures, easy to operate, lifts heavy crab pots with ease. Safe to use, no scratches on boat sides. Great product!
Just installed haven't used it yet, but tested fine by the installer.
However, I think the Puller Arm is a little bit short for my taste. I know
For sure that any crab pot will scrape, scratch the side of my boat during
reeling up the crab pot. Aluminum guard side panel for sure will prevent side panel damage. Looking to replace the arm with 24 inches long minimum to avoid the Pot from touching or damaging the gel coat paint of my boat. I like
The portability of this puller.. It doesn't look intimidating or bulky either.
The added work and expense to modify the puller arm is my only gripe. Other than this. The puller looks nice..
I love my puller and used it once for a shrimping trip out of Whitter Alaska in April 2019. Had lots of bad weather and yes you will need more than comes in the box to install it but truth be told it's very easy to install and it works as described. 2 pots plus anchor at some points were a little challenging for the puller and it would get hot but we were probably pushing the weight limit. I would buy it again and I'm very impressed. Only thing I would knock it for is the install and specifically the length of the power cable not to mention the cable wasn't labeled positive and negitive. You just have to guess.
