5 TIPS FOR ADVANCED WINCHING
1 Every line needs at least one winch damper. 2 If you run out of dampers, a heavy coat or a sleeping bag will get you out of trouble. 3 Keep the line off the ground – rocks and dirt can tear a winch rope to shreds. 4 The open end of the winch hook points up. If it breaks it’ll go down, not up. 5 Let the winch cool down: 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off.
