DIS­EN­GAGE SPOOL

4 x 4 Australia - - Technique -

6Disen­gage your winch’s free spool and take up the slack in the line. Put your 4x4 into low range first gear and be­gin winching in. Slowly turn­ing the wheels can help break suc­tion in mud and take some load off the winch. You’ll want to match wheel speed with the winch to share the load, pay­ing at­ten­tion not to over­run it and tan­gle the line. A winch’s in­ter­nal com­po­nents aren’t very strong, so winch in a 30 sec­ond on-off cy­cle as smoothly as pos­si­ble.
