Mossy\'s New Leash

After several days of all work and no play (Jeep), I had a few hours of devine construction. Everything lines up well and should be fine. I'm planning on re-winding the cable and re-routing the leads tomorrow evening.

Rest easy PineLog, Mossy'll pull you out!

Re: Mossy\'s New Leash

Are you supposed to pull out all the cable and re-wind it on a new winch?

A new winch is supposed to have the cable stretched before using. This is done by letting the cable out and hooking to something that will cause resitance. Pull the rig forward with the winch and wind the cable back on the spool. Now you are set to use it as needed.

Re: Mossy\'s New Leash

Yeah,yeah,yeah. My $10 yard sale come-a-long (talked 'em down from $12) hasn't failed me yet. But in a never ending effort to save a buck I heard about the "******* winch". Seems you run a rope back through the rear wheel to a tree and wind 'er up. Even works in reverse !
P.S. Hope I don't get stuck)
