Thanks, BeNt! Good information!
One of our Club members (I forget his handle on here) posted the link, and I think it should be mandatory viewing...even as simplified as it seems. Too many "hot shots" think they were born knowing everything, and I hate being near them when we're wheeling

It started to remind me of "Block and Tackle" training as a sailor, which I avoided by being an Engineman

No problem wilywilie, I'm just glad people are crawling the thread and finding the videos interesting. I know it's a bit slow paced and drawn out, but if you pay attention there is a lot of information to learn in this video set. Been trying to find some from the 4x4 guys in Australia but I'm having a rough time finding good ones unfortunately.

BeNt,

Great Videos! anything regarding safety......is never too much. I think a lot of people including me actually saw some proper examples of things we all talk about regularly on the forum. If I were to get into a situation, I would have to peice together info that I have heard and try to make it work.

Well just remember these videos hit the major high points to get you in good shape. These aren't the end all be all of winching. Especially since every situation is different. But I think they gave me a good enough heads up to make proper decisions to my safety and the people around me as well as my Jeep so that nothing and nobody gets hurt.

so, if your vehicle requires 40,000 pounds of force to pull it out, and you hook up all kinds of snatch blocks and whatnot, is their a 40,000 pound load hooked up to a tow point that probably has a 10,000 pound limit?

on that point, no matter what, i dont think it is possible, they say a snatch block will double the winches ability to pull, but that has not been said for the line you are pulling with... what happens there??

very true, I am sure the lines dont have ratings of 40,000 pounds. Anyone have insight on this?

The line between pulleys does the same thing. For instance the pull force between line 1 and line 2 would be halved. So if you are pulling 6000lbs worth of weight with a two line pull (2:1) each line between each pulley point is only holding 3000lbs.

In an 8:1 pull each line would be holding and pulling 1/8th of the weight, so at 40,000 you would have 5,000lbs per pulley/line. In a perfect world it works like that but I would imagine depending on angles etc it wouldn't be exactly distributed, but you wouldn't have the full pull on each line. That's why when using a pulley your winch has to use less power to pull the weight.

The backwards winching was neat. I'd seen people talk about it, and a lot of people say its not possible, so it was cool to see it actually done. My only question would be who carries that many snatch blocks? There's almost enough money there to invest in a 2nd winch for the rear of the jeep!

LOL true. But the thing to remember is if you are wheeling with other people they more than likely have another D-Shackle, Tree Saver, and snatch block with them! If everyone you go with carries what they should you would have more than enough to pull that off if you have 5-10 people riding with you!

No issue ripper, glad I could post something people appreciated. There is always people who are negative, I've found at times it's easier to move on if I think a post is stupid instead of post. BUT at times you just have to post, so take his actions for face value!
