Portable winch field report

using a portable winch to pull out a small car


We finally got the parts Festiva free thanks to our hired helper bringing along the above portable winch.

It's designed to fit over a hitch ball for pulling a boat onto its trailer. It worked like a charm for this application where we secured it to a nearby tree.

I was starting to wonder if we would ever get that car unstuck.
