We pull a ton of broken metal posts every year in the grape vineyard, and use a couple of tools like pictured above. One is a scrap press die about the same size that is just two rectangles, it works fine. We also burned out a small plate of half-inch steel, made a tee-shaped hole and a slot for the chain hook. That worked really well for short stumps, but, alas, it has been lost to the great tool hiding place in the sky. Can't find it for the life of me, and probably only have myself to blame.

I'm still searching for a better way to pull broken wooden post stumps- we lose 50-100 per year. Most are 4 inch, some larger. I am engineering a rotary digger that could make a slot around the stump, then use a looped steel cable to drop in the slot and grab the stump. If pulled, we often reuse the hole for the new wooden post, so less disturbance* is better. Right now we're so dry I cannot even pull wooden stumps with the loader tractor

I made a lever system for pulling the stumps with a chain and the t-post hook plate or just a chain around the wooden ones. It is very rudimentary and an accident waiting to happen. The hard part is finding parts sturdy enough to really lean into and pry with that don't weigh a ton to carry around. I need to flesh out my design of a highly-modified floor jack post puller.

* (I got arrested for a noise violation with a guy named Les Disturbance, once. Not really, but it sounded funny.)
