nail puller

Can anyone recommend a good nail puller for pulling the spiral shank nail? I'm not concerned on damaging the wood since it is being replaced. I've done a search through google and have found all different styles of pullers. What would be the best type for this kind of work? I've been using a wonderbar but I'm having a dificult time getting under the nail head to start it out.

Ask for a cat's claw nail puller.
You can drive it under the nail heads, and pry them out (even a spiral shank).
Good lUck!

Cat's Claw Nail Puller

On the cat's claw, is that just a style of nail puller or is that a brand name?

for an example of the cat's paw nail puller. It is a brand name and a particular style of nail puller.

"I'm not concerned on damaging the wood since it is being replaced."

Set a circular saw blade to the depth of the material. (depth minus 1/16" for siding) and cut across the wood. Use 36" (bigger the better) inch pry bar to remove the wood. The heads of still grabbing nails will be exposed for easy removal..
