I like the Ace Line Hauler. They've beefed it up recently. $450 around here (CA).

Uses the Scotty mounts and plug.

2 years of service w/o a problem.

I use a pot puller made by SEA GEAR out of Florida. We mount them on the washboard,they come in an enclosed aluminum box. They seem to hold up very well. Cost is in the 700-800 dollar range.. Thats with a 1 horsepower motor..

I was hoping to find something with a bit more pulling/lifting capacity....something beefier...

But thanks for the suggestions, it's nice to have a starting point...

I had a gas one, switched to the Ace line hauler, affordable, comes apart with one bolt so it can be stowed, mounts on a scotty downrigger mount. But its a light duty unit, works great for me, but if you're looking for heavier duty, either the EZ puller or the Mckay Safe-T-puller http://www.mckayshrimpandcrabgear.com/index.htm

Dave ; If you have room, get one with a honda gas engine
I have an electric one and a gas one and its difference is night and day.
The electric one stores easy but they are SLOW, if you use it Shrimping you
can see the Shrimp swiming out when it gets in to the top
A friend of mine has an Ace line puller, real light duty and very slow.
The gas powered one will pull up any thing you hook it to as fast as you can
coil the rope

Good luck Greg

The Electra-Dyne is very popular for pulling commercial size pots in deep water. It's larger and more heavy duty than the others mentioned.

Have to agree with Taken Lightly, Electradynes are a very good product. I know commercial lobsterman who have used them for years up north on boats that did'nt have hydraulics and have been very pleased.
