    Yup if you are rubbing it on tree tops it will break. Use a throw line pull a rope up with a pulley on it instead. You are losing power rubbing on trees.

    Depends on who's looking for me.....and why.
    I used to have a 1974 Ford F-250 4X4. I had a Warn winch on it. Rated @ 8K I think. Anyways, I made some good money with that winch in the winter time in Spokane.

    Back then, I think the winch sold for about $400.00 or so. Made it all back within a month of using it.

    And, be sure that you have a good-quality, heavy-duty snatch block for the really heavy pulling.

    The only thing that got my 74 Power wagon out of real deep mud was a 3 ton come along , I pulled it up on plywood. The truck sat there till the next day until I finally got it out. It was up to front and rear bumpers in nasty mud the Army Corps of engineers dumped from a river bottom.. I still have that old come along.
