    Old video. There was a series. The guy in the disco was trying to destroy it for fun, he did a pretty good job.

    Still bloody dangerous though and he's still a complete moron.

    The LR came out - seems like a successfull recovery to me.

    Not sure how one should tackle that one. I used to have a warn 8274 and I am sure that with a snatch block attached to another vehicle it would have slowly come out. I once pulled a rally car through some reads and out of a dam with that set up. The nice thing with that route is that everything happens very slowly, and I would only pull for a short while and give the motor a chance to cool and the battery a chance to charge. At the same time you had a good opportunity to review and see if the plan needed alteration?

    I have never used a snatch rope, but this seems like a good "how NOT to" video.

    Cretins.

    Cheers

    Rule no 1: NEVER EVER join straps together with a shackle!!!

    Rule no 2: always attach safety bridals to your straps.
