AN­CHOR POINT

4 x 4 Australia - - Technique -

2From here you will need to select a suit­able an­chor point. Ideally, choose the largest and health­i­est tree you can find. Keep­ing the tree trunk pro­tec­tor as low as pos­si­ble will also help min­imise the stresses on the tree. Side load­ing a winch can lead to cat­a­strophic fail­ure of the hous­ing, so keep your pull as straight as pos­si­ble to en­sure that the ca­ble or rope doesn’t rub against any hard or rough sur­faces.
