Always nice to have a winch, a couple of pointers, don't wrap you cable around a tree, good way to kill it ,use a tree strap and hook to it.
And as a saftey precaution always wrap a cot, leather bag or something around, Over the year I have seen at least 3 or 4 people that didn't brake a cable or hook and the winch cable will come back and go right through the windshield. That is why I awitched to rope, something breaks, the rope doesn't rebound, it just drops to the ground

Amen to the rope. A loaded steel cable is terrifying when it comes loose. I saw a hook break and shot the cable back through the plexiglass windshield of a Jeep. Guy had a few stitches, but only because the plexi took so much force out. Had it his shield been out or glass, it could have ended a lot worse. Ropes just fall dead like someone cut a piece of string.

sigh...

Oh and unless your trying to get rid of your girl you might want to have her start out somewhere safe instead of inline with that winch line.

I arrived at the scene of an accident where a man was killed by the remaining half of his winch hook ten years ago. Exact same setup, right in the kisser.

Drape a heavy blanket over the wire about 1/3 of the way from the hook so it dampens the energy of the wire if it breaks at the hook. The hook will wrap around the blanket instead of hitting someone.
