I'm looking at an EZ Puller. 2.3 HP, 160 fpm, 200-lb capacity. It comes with a Schedule 80, 1.5-inch aluminum davit. Optional is a Schedule 80, 2-inch aluminum davit. Even though the 1.5" davit is shown as coming with the 2.3 HP model, I'm told by the manufacturer that I'd need the 2-inch davit because the 1.5-inch one would likely bend. But even Safe-T-Hauler's light commercial puller, rated for 300 pounds, shows that only a Schedule 40 aluminum davit comes with the Safe-T-Hauler.
So I'm wondering if I really need the 2-inch davit. The only reason I might not get the 2-inch one is because already the base plate for the 1.5-inch davit will barely fit where it needs to go on the deck. Ever bent your pot puller davit? Think 2 inches for a davit is necessary?
And no, Steve, I'm not ordering an Electra Dyne
