i'm about to purchase a pulley and fan blade puller and wanted to see if anybody had any recommendations.
i've seen few people use the posilock puller
are there any better ones than this?

This is the one I have. It works pretty good.
Karst means cave. So, I search for caves.

Karsthuntr--That puller is great. I have never ran into anything yet that I can't get off with it.

I have the posi lock and it is great. I've had to replace the extension about 3 times in 5 years though, it is the weak link, about 10 bucks for that piece. The kit must be over 200 by now, but to me it's worth it. Just keep the acme threads lubed and it'll be good. Jaws expand 5 inches and a reach of 6 inches so it comes in handy. It's in the top left corner.

if you dont need the bigger one often, I might sugest Harbor Freight. If I use a tool often, I want quality. However, it it aint often... I dont spend the bucks. (unless I find a deal at a garage sale or flea market)

Sooo... what do you guys do on the one's that are so damned rusted that it just won't willing to come out ? (typically, totally rusted up)
Mostly condenser fan in residential unit and some blower fan on packaged commercial units. Often times, after trying for 20 minutes, I give up and just grab matching (or at least similar one) from supplier. The only thing I don't like when this happens is... it's PITA to try to get exact same pitch/diameter, etc from the supplier and OEM parts tend to be.... 4 days away when customer is yelling... "NOW".
