How To Winch | Winching for Beginners

Fortunately, winches do more than look cool on your bumper. They’re one of those tools that can make or break a trail drive. Especially if you find yourself alone and in a sticky situation. I can’t count how many times i’ve been by myself wishing I had a winch. Thankfully i’ve learned from my experiences, and now ensure that a winch is with me whenever i’m on the trail.

Winches can be intimidating if you’ve never used one before. They’re large, somewhat noisy, and have many moving parts which can damage equipment or other people. If you’ve never winched a vehicle then you should watch this video that our friends over at WARN put together. It’s a great how-to winch video that is steeped in the fundamentals.
