FOR MAKESHIFT HOIST

Camper Trailer Australia - - BUSH MECHANICS -

The good old snatch block comes in handy for more than just 4WD re­cov­er­ies. Think big­ger! If you ever need a hoist in the scrub, one of these bad boys can come in pretty darn handy. You’ll need a good sized tree with a nice and sturdy branch close by. Sim­ply use a strap to at­tach the snatch block to the branch, and use the ve­hi­cle’s winch to lift a heavy ob­ject. If you don’t have a winch, you can sim­ply run a rope from the tow­bar and through the snatch block, and use the ve­hi­cle to pull the load. Ob­vi­ously, you’ll need to ex­er­cise cau­tion with this one, guys. If there’s any chance the load is too much for the tree branch to han­dle, you should def­i­nitely re­con­sider your op­tions.
