February 1, 2008, Newsletter Issue #100: Getting the most from your winch

Tip of the Week

Once you have your winch mounted with the basics, you are now equipped to perform straight line pulls between two vehicles. It's sad but true. To get your winch to live up to its pulling potential, you'll need to add a few items. These include Tree Saver straps (never wrap a cable directly round a tree, unless you want to kill the tree and kink your cable), a couple of clevis pins, snatch blocks, a choke chain and, of course, heavy-duty leather work gloves. Finally, you should also attach tow hooks to the frame on all four corners of your vehicle.
