i have a 4000lb winch.
roughly 2 tonne.
my zook is roughly a ton
when i get stuck in mud. the winch isnt able to pull me the slightest bit. even if the wheels r spinning and im not that stuck.
its a 12volt winch. maybe its not getting the full 12 volts it needs.
any suggestions?

(besides snatch block) already got one. still didnt work

although youre car only weighs a ton, when youre dragging it youre not pulling a ton.

basically, you have to pull hard enough to overcome the suction of the mud etc youre stuck in so it be that by the time youve worked out the physics, you could be pulling around 3-4 tons

i read some were a good year ago that you had to times your 4x4 by 3 or 4 so if its 1ton x its by 3 ull need a 3 ton winch that way evan if you happen to get the lot under mud it should have a bit of power to get it out mine packed in i had a 3 ton and i was always pullin my mates 90 out n my winch only lasted 4 months
