Heavy duty industrial portable ratchet puller. This thing is built like a tank!
Made in the USA out of solid ductile iron and steel. The Wyeth Scott Power Puller is one of the best ratchet pullers money can buy.
In this article we will be going over a few features of this product, what this product is used for, why it is worth the cost and my initial review. There is also a short video below showing the power puller in action as we used it to recover a heavy log.
Wyeth Scott More Power Puller, (Model# 3-35-A-SLT) – Features
To start off, this is not one of the cheap pullers you will find at most hardware stores.
The More Power Puller is made in the USA out of solid iron and steel components and weights in at almost 30lbs!
I have never seen this tool at a local hardware store so I had to buy it online (click here to see price)
When the box was delivered I could already tell that this tool was going to be a quality product as this thing was HEAVY!
The More Power Puller is shipped fully assembled with a Tackle Block Hook and the Tubular Safety Handle. There were a few chips in the paint from shipping, but as they say “If you want a pretty puller, you don’t want ours…”
Instructions are included along with a sheet going over the grease points.
Here is a quick run down of some of the (3-35-A-SLT) Features:
• Made of American ductile iron castings and American steel
• 3-ton (6,000 lbs.) Dead Lift Rating *double line
• 6-ton (12,000 lbs.) Pull/Drag Rating *double line
• 35 feet of AmSteel Blue Synthetic Rope, 5/16″
• Replaceable parts allow for decades of use (link to More Power Puller parts catalog)
Wyeth Scott More Power Puller – Applications
So what is this kind of tool best used for?
Well, there are a few applications where a heavy duty ratchet puller can be worth it’s weight in gold.
Off-roading & Vehicle Recovery
To recover stuck 4×4 vehicles or machinery a heavy duty piece of equipment is needed. Sure, there are electronic winches available but a portable mechanical winch offers a lot of flexibility without the need for power.
When paired with a tree saver strap and synthetic soft shackle this makes the ultimate vehicle recovery tool.
Logging & Tree Work
Trees and large pieces of wood are heavy and can be extremely hard to move.
When winches and tractors are not an option, a mechanical ratchet like the More Power Puller is a great option.
Here is a photo with the Power Puller dragging a log up an embankment.
The Power Puller is anchored to a tree using a Tree Saver Strap and a Synthetic Shackle.
Amazon Links to these accessories below:
• 6ft Tree Saver Strap with Protective Sleeves
• Synthetic Soft Shackles for Towing/Recovery
• 3-Ton Ratchet Puller with 35ft of Amsteel Blue Rope
A metal chain was wrapped around the log and the Power Puller Hook was then connected to the chain to protect the synthetic rope against abrasion.
To move this large log up the bank this thing worked Great!

Is the Wyeth-Scott More Power Puller worth the Money?
Well it is still early to tell but overall I am very pleased with the build quality of the product and the fact that it is made in the USA.
Yes, it does cost more than other products but this is not the type of tool I would suggest going cheap on.
Vehicle recovery and moving heavy loads under tension can be extremely dangerous especially if a piece of equipment fails.
For that reason I decided to put my money behind a company that has been making these things since 1934.
Not only that…the More Power Puller is the ONLY product they make. That says a lot for the main focus of the company.
I hope to be updating this article with more photos and videos as more uses come up.
If you use this Power Puller and have any tips or stories we would love to hear about them below.
