On the worst of mine, I slipped a 3' piece of pipe over my half-inch ratchet handle to get some more leverage. But most came out with just the ratchet, which has a 24" handle.

Take exquisite care not to round the hex socket in the bolt. Clean it out with carb cleaner to make sure you get the hex bit all the way in.
