Contrary to some, I believe it is potentially damaging to use any kind of hammer and definitely don't "bang the hell out of it with a sledge" as that can cause damage to the transmission. I've seen yard jockeys do this often and it has always resulted in some collateral damage to the shaft, bearings or transmission which they don't care about or even acknowledge as it just means more money for them in additional avoidable work.
Heat and the proper puller is all that is needed.
