    Default Honda powered pot pullers

    Does anyone know if they sell the gas powered honda pot pullers up here? I am looking at getting one and was hoping to find one in state. Thanks,

    Murray Pacific in Sitka. Probably your best bet for price. They can send it to you AK airline air cargo. Sorry dont have number handy but it be worth your time to call. I've owned 2 and they're awsome.

    I bought mine from Marita Sea and Ski 3 Springs ago. Kind of strange that they carry them, as they don't sell Honda outboards.

    I love mine and wouldn't go any other way. I went through 2 different electric pullers that didn't have enough power to pull. Go with the gas powered Honda and don't look back!!

    Thanks for the replies. Do any of you guys happen to remember what you paid for one from Marita Sea and Ski?

    Are you looking for gas powered because you like the "gypseyhead" style hauler or for the power of the gas engine? PM me and i might have something in electric that may work for you.

    Default Haltness in Valdez...

    is a authorized Honda power equipment dealer and they have a Honda Marine license too, so they may be able to get one for you, ask them for a price, I've dealt with them and they were great to do business with 907-835-5418.

    Honda equipment is pretty close in price wherever it is sold in my experience, and I have a bunch of Honda powered equipment from all over the place.

    I think I paid about $1100 for mine. It is the basic Honda engine (widely used on different things) with the gear reduction (I want to say 6:1) for the puller application. My came with a 6 foot aluminim davit, of average or slightly under average quality.

    I added a 3 1/2' aluminum post to my boat, that the davit slides into. I then drilled holes in the base, and can lock the davit into place in 2 different heights, and forward and 90 degrees positions out from my boat (over the water).

    So, I basically felt that 6' davit was too short, and can get an extra 1 1/2 feet of height, which puts me about 81/2 - 9 feet above the water. Enough to lift a Salmon Shark mostly out of the water!!!

    Hopefully you can follow all of this. Bottom line, I love the Honda puller. With a little work, I made the davit better and love the entire set up now.

    I am going to attach a pic so you can see my set-up (if it works)!!
