As title used to have a chain one which was restricted in which filters it could get on and has now disappeared, hence the question :)

I have two sorts one is a double chain loop it is very good but doesn't go around large filters I also have one that is an adjustable strap it will fit anything also it is easy to put on it some situations like the one yellowbelly shows, I used to have one that was a chain on a handle with a hook that was a load of crap.

We have one of these...
View attachment 899439....Plug a 1/2" square drive ratchet in it and away you go. For awkward, long distance ones you can extend your reach with some extensions - sometimes saves you having to be directly under the filter and getting a neck full of oil.
Think mine is half one end and 3/8 the other. Had a Snapon version that for some reason was much better

Get yourself a set of these


I have this set - there isnt a filter they havent been able to remove even the JD trans alloy canisters that just seize up and the plastic collars for the fuel filters.

interesting topic i have worked as a truck mechanic for many years and have still not found the elusive one too fits all for filters on old machinery access was good but on newer machinery everything is crammed in . i think Hard grafts post sums up my arsenal of weapons of choice for filter removal and goweresque home made remover i have one very similar but the box section is much longer around 2ft in old money but works very well without the need to add extensions .

Chain wrench here, an off the shelf number that fits a 1/2" ratchet usually, but did have to use this patented version to get the Hyd filters off the combine this year:
