Well I can do a pitman arm in like 10-15 minutes, however I have tools in my tool box at the shop with a nice hoist.

anywhere from 10 minutes to 3 hrs depending on the tools you have and how stubborn it wants to be

are you using it correctly? take off the nut on the steering box stud, slide the two prongs onto the top side of the arm, thread bolt up the puller until its tight against the bottom of the stud, then use a breaker bar to take loose.
