I am looking to buy a 2 ton USA made come along. I have found a Maasdam and was wondering what other choices I had or if there were any others. Just looking for some input on the Maasdam or other brands that are usa made. Here is a link to the one I am looking at. Thanks!

Just looked at their web site. I hadn't seen them in my searching. I do like the looks of those. I will look into them and see what they have that might fit my needs best.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

I have looked at those and do like the way that they are built and appear to hold up. I am mostly looking to pull non running cars on tow dollies or to pull rolling tractors on trailers and things of that nature. I am just having trouble putting down about 6 or 7 times the amount for the same weight rating when it will not see heavy daily use. I would love to have a lug all though!

Wyeth-Scott not cheap, not light weight just very very good
been using them since 1971 different places for different things.
all of the old ones had the handle replaced with iron pipe and then we put cheater handles on over them. abused them every which way and never broke one. cables would fray and strands would snap leading to cable being replaced
new ones come with light weight handle that folds up before something breaks, probably to keep the lawyers away.
watch out there is an exact looking copy made in China that probably will break and hurt you

I've been using Maasdams for over 25 years. They've performed in an outstanding manner. Anything wrong with them is due solely to my abuse.

Morgan,
I have an old USA made 2 ton chain hoist. It weight about a half ton.

No idea what it's worth. Haven't used it in 30 years.
George

I'll second the Wyeth-Scott More Power Puller. My wife got me one for my birthday 35 years ago, I still have it. (Still have her too!) It has pulled my truck out of a few holes, hung up some engines and other heavy machine parts, pulled some buildings together, and straightened up some others. If it won't pull it, it's time to get something with a powered winch. I also have a cheapo that a friend found hanging in a tree at a campsite, it works well for light duty and crowded spaces.

Pros:
Two ton rated, thirty feet of 3/8 FLEXIBLE cable, all parts replaceable and available, load rated handle that will fold up if you overload it, before anything else breaks.

Cons:
Will give the UPS man a hernia when he delivers it, need lots of room to set it up and use it, NO LEVEL WIND, can and will ball up so you need another one hitched to it to unwind it.

I was going to write; That doesn't look like the quality USA ones I've seen/used. It looks like a USA Cheepie. Then I looked at the link 36F30 posted. That's more like it....

Do you want a chain or cable come-a-long? I much prefer the chain ones and don't care too much where it was made as long as it works.

I bought a handfull of em when I was building log houses. They have performed well. Although I doubt I really ever put em to the test.

Sure are better than Anything you can get from Harbor Freight...

I have a couple of Maasdams, one is a 2 ton cable puller and the other a 3/4 ton rope puller, not all of them are made in US but mine are. Locally available at L&M Supply or from Amazon. Excellent tool!

Here are the professional grade USA made ones we use as millwrights. Some of them were 20 years old. Not cheap but a lifetime tool
