I was just looking at the front yard yesterday and thinking it's late in March to still have two feet of snow on the flat part or our land.
Until yesterday I have not taken getting stuck and recovery gear seriously. I'm confident if the winch had not malfunctioned it would of pulled the machine out.
I used a 20' tow strap tied 10' up in a tree to get some lift. At one point I had winched 8', then the Warn 2k stopped pulling hard. It would not even budge the 500. When I reel the cable in I can grab the cable and the winch will stop.
