I witnessed some winching over the weekend. The guys were trying to do a double line pull, but were really only doing an angle change. I thought about the vids and advised them to move the snatch block if they wanted to do a 2:1 pull.

That video is good LOL, guess he should have picked a bigger tree, that deuce and a half probably weighs 20x more than that little tree he hooked too lol.

YHC2000WJ glad to see you actually got some practical use out of the videos! I got a chance to "play" with the winch over the weekend and "practice" some double line pulls myself. Was a lot of fun, getting unstuck is just about as fun as getting stuck haha.

Thanks for posting this. The reverse pull is great. I never would have thought of that.

Thanks "bent" I got about half of them to watch yet. I love the recovery aspect of the sport and some times I think I have way to much gear in my rig untill I see (or do) a complex rigging.

Totally cool videos. I have helped my friends use there winches in the past but never did anything too fancy like the pul forward and the back end up a hill at the same time. They did a really good job showing the many options you have when using a winch and at the same time how to do it safetly.

AWSOME post

and here is a prime example of what NOT to do when doing recovery, EVER. I know they are not using a winch, but i fear what would be seen if they had one

No problem guys, I'm glad people are still finding this thread and appreciating it. While the videos are over simplified it give you a really nice ground work to build on and something I felt anyone who had never used a winch before especially could benefit from! Thanks for the thumbs up guys!

I would agree, but sometimes over simplified can be good as it brings out alot of the basics. Being in the Marines and Army, I learned that when all else failed, if i went back to the basics that I learned in Boot Camp, I would get through the situation. Boot Camp was "overly simplified" to teach the basics and give the foundation to grow on...the same can be said for these videos. The basics are overly simplified so they can be adapted to multiple situations

I couldn't agree more, sometimes even the most experienced people need to go back to basics from time to time.

The videos are saying set to private for some reason. i watched them before a month ago or so and was going to show my brother the backwards winch pull (he couldn't see how that was possible) and they aren't working. anyone else have this problem?
