Simon Christie from 4wd TV checks out the benefits of running Winch Rope
over the typical steel cable found on many winches.
Winch Rope is stronger, safer and much easier to work with than steel
cable, and it is simple to retrofit an existing winch from steel to rope.

Winching a Lawn Tractor Into the Cart
In this video Dave and I are loading a junky tractor into the flatbed cart.
We added a floor and a portable 2,000lb electric winch onto the big cart we
bought from Tractor Supply Co for the purpose of hauling lawn tractors.
This Sears Companion had a locked transaxle and stripped steering gear, so
it would have been hard to move otherwise. This setup has been a real time
(and back) saver, and I don't know how we did without it. I sped up the
video in one part becaue the winch takes about 2.5 minutes to pull a
tractor up the ramps and into the bed. We don't mind it because the winch
is remote controlled and moves so slow just one person can safely load up a
tractor. You can also see the Wizard in action as it makes short work of
this task. Oh yeah, when we got down to the garage we discovered the
Companion had a stowaway that took a ride with us. I wonder if he came with
the tractor when I bought it?

DIY How to Replace Winch Cable With Synthetic Rope - AmSteel Blue ATV Plow Rope Replacement
This video is a quick tutorial on how to remove your winch cable and
replace it with a synthetic winch rope. I'm replacing my cable with an 8
foot AmSteel Blue 3\16ths" rope. The ATV in this video is a 2003 Polaris
Sportsman 500 and a Warn Snow Plow. Synthetic rope works much better for
lifting the plow as the sharp angle and repetitive lifting tends to fray a
steel winch cable. AmSteel rope can handle the angle and is strong enough
to lift the four wheeler plow. AmSteel®-Blue is a torque-free 12-strand
single braid that yields the maximum in strength-to-weight ratio and,
size-for-size, is the same strength as steel—but it's so light, it
floats. AmSteel®-Blue is an excellent wire rope replacement with extremely
low stretch, and superior flex fatigue and wear resistance
Jon Beech Recovery - Heavy off road recovery using 2 Bedford 4 x 4 winch trucks
Jon Beech Recovery Specialists winching out a huge tractor and grader
combination from a peat bog using 2 Bedford 4 x 4 winch trucks.
The first Bedford is doing all the winching and the second Bedford is
acting as an anchor to the main winch truck.
When the recovery is complete the anchor truck, which is fitted with a
large hydraulic ground anchor was then winched out by the first winch
Working in these ground conditions is not for the faint hearted as can be
witnessed by the photograph at the end of the video, showing the size of
the hole left behind in the peat bog that very nearly sent this
tractor/grader combination to a very sticky soggy grave!
