Got this idea from off the net. I made mine fit onto the bucket of my Kubota rather then using it on the 3 pth. I don't like looking backwards and doing stuff because of how my neck bothers me now. I made mine just from some scrap that I had laying around didn't buy anything except for some bolts. My first try didn't work out to good because what was happening is that one side would stay up and the other side would go down.My solution was to link the two jaws together by using a sliding tee. The fixed part is 1" sq tubing and the sliding one is 3/4" sq tubing that fits inside the 1".I used some 9/16" rod for the cross tee's and on each end I used some 3/4" flat bar welded onto the ends of the rods.The 3/4" flat also keeps the sliding part from wanting to move sideways. I've pulled out some smaller trees etc: and pulled out one fence post just to show that it does work.I made this so that I can pull out some brush that growing up into my fence.Guess if I ever wanted to pull up fence posts I could use it for that as well. The pics should give you a pretty good idea of how it works.One thing about this is that I don't need hydralics to close the jaws together.

Well made looks handy to have. Does the top of the jaws grip the post or tree good like you have it. I have several fence posts to replace & was going to use the normal chain wrapped over a car wheel set in front of the post to force it upward. This looks like something I would like to make also.

at first it didn't grip to great. I ended up running some beads of weld length  wise along the gripping edge ,then used my angle grinder to cut grooves along the beads. So now I have 3 teeth edges to grab onto stuff. It grabs pretty good . It works good now so next is going to be putting some paint onto it.

The sliding tee was a good remedy.  Thanks for the pics and description.     Rick
