Hustler,

what electrick winch are you using into the video ?

Simon

that is a simple harbor freight badlands 3500lb atv winch.  use a 20% off coupon and you can get it for roughly $100.  i wanted something small but had the weight capacity without a snatch block to pull a pantera onto the trailer.  I liked being able to store the winch setup in the truck so it wouldn't be exposed to the weather or theft.  a front mounted winch on my truck wouldn't help me in these situations and a winch capable of pulling my super duty would be fairly expensive and its not something i anticipated using often.  so building the portable winch made sense for me and someone could borrow it if needed for small jobs like this.

i may do another video just on the winch setup, that was my first time with the head cam to free myself of holding the camera to get the job done while weather cooperated.  the camera wasn't pointing low enough and a lot of the footage i did get made me seasick reviewing it, so a learning experience and i will use it sparingly in future videos.
