Has anyone on here tried either one of these? Can you tell me how you liked it? And also what price you paid for it if you bought it? I have no ties to this company, I tried the 3000 out the other day and it worked slick, but I have not seen the 1000 at all. Thanks............Brian

We have the Maxis 3000 at work. I don't know how much the company paid for it. It works great though. We have pulled some stuff in that would have been impossible to pull by hand. It is very light and easy to setup. I don't know how we ever got along without it.

It Works Great!! Think I paid around 2K and they paid shipping, or so they say. Tried everything I could to buy as cheap as possible but the price was pretty much the same from maxis as my supplier.

It sounds like $2000 is the going price for the 3000. I called my supplier today on the 1000 and he said around $400 for the 1000. I think we may get one of each. The 3000 is great. The day we used it we pulled around 24 panels 4/0 225A, this was in a hotel. We did them all in one day. I could set the puller up just as fast as the guys could tie on the wire. It saved us a ton of work and labor $ in one day. If the 1000 works as good on smaller stuff for the $400 it sure will be worth it also. The $2000 for the 3000 is a lot of money for such a simple tool but it works. Does anyone know of a website with pullers like these but a different brand? I would like to look around to buy the best one. Thanks again..........Brian
