I take it the hole hog is a residential electricians power tool for boring wood studs. I have only heard of it and have never used it. Any tugger i have used has its own motor and gear box. I think it would be interesting to me to see this setup you are talking about.

Electricmanscott I bet that is what he is talking about. Seems kind of handy but I just don't see it pulling 6 or so 350mcm cables like the site says.

We bought one of these and it ended up being woefully inadequate for our use.
I think that the claims on the site must leave something out (maybe the 6-350s were in a straight length of 5" PVC?).
Anyhow, we ended up with a Greenlee Super Tugger, and kept this one for smaller pulls.
It seems to work OK for up to about #1s...S
