EN­GAGE FREE SPOOL

4 x 4 Australia - - Technique -

3With your an­chor point se­cure, en­gage your winch’s free spool and run out your ca­ble or rope. Your winch has more pulling power when more rope is off the drum. But never leave any less than one full layer on the winch. There’s a va­ri­ety of ways you can use hooks and shack­les to at­tach your ca­ble or rope to the tree trunk pro­tec­tor but, as a rule, the fewer metal con­nec­tors the bet­ter. If it doesn’t ab­so­lutely have to be there, get rid of it.
