welcome back farm friends in todays video we are going to test drive the new badlands apex 12 000 lb

harbor

cargo

winch

now a perfect opportunity came up while we were cleaning around the creek i found a very strange surprise look a little closer you see it there itself it appears to be very very old probably about a hundred years old most likely a logging

truck

or a big heavy

truck

of some kind has to be from the 1930's if I had to guess it looks like it has those big fenders like The ones you see on the 3234 Ford or some of the old Dodges I guess they all had those big fenders and it's down here in the creek where they left it for who knows what reason I didn't even know it was here until we started to clear .

It seems that the entire frame is intact. Everything is here. There's a section right there that you can see and we even have the cab and what appears to be the rear bumper. When it comes to a basic mounting kit for a

winch

, you need about five. things ok you really only need five t Stuff which is a great basic kit you need a tree strap you need a pair of soft or hard shackles and you need a snatch block or pulley man if that doesn't give you the fizzy goodness even this big one won't fit out there and if you were to go with a soft one even though it has this abrasion resistant material in there it's going to get damaged on that sharp metal so you know you're just going to have some hard to beat goodness just an old chain lumber do yourself a favor and get one of these silky pocket little japanese boy i saw this thing literally in the spring when everything is growing and especially if you work outside it's part of my edc i just carry it in my back pocket now we can install our block this is a block you've probably seen them before this is the new charging port this is my first time using it it's rated at 20 000 lbs so it should work and e These open so you can get your line here. something I've never seen before because I haven't used synthetic line there's not that much line on this I think my wireline on my 8 000 is worn but look at how it's red here I'm going to guess this is what you want just to make sure that the red one is in, so that would probably mean you have a full set of wraps on the winch.

I took the jeep out of a jari this year. OMG guys this cable has this wireless. I didn't realize how useful it was. I'm usually tied up. Can I. I couldn't get more. less than 10 feet away from the truck because it's tied up by the cable this is awesome did I mention I have dual alternators y'all ready to get all this mess out of here what's the chance this wench will break this for

Ready, but are you ready? Have you clicked the thumbs up? I'll wait for you to have it. Give our East Coast boys a few more seconds. Alright, here we go, man. I love this wireless connection. off so the battery doesn't get damaged okay I'm going to pull back to a safer distance okay so even with the emergency brake on it's pulling the truck that's pretty standard so we need to do a of two things, hitch another truck. him or a tractor or a chain or a rope back to an immovable tree i know it's tempting but don't use your tow ball to pull it's not designed for that and if that breaks you've got a two pound hunk of steel in a slingshot i got it one piece at a time yeah so i was scared of that uh he took the motor base out of there so now let's hook back to the frame itself let's take a look at the components and see how they held up. uh the winch was immaculate it pulls very strong much stronger than the old warren 8000 certainly very very powerful i have serious reservations and concerns about this synthetic line so this is the red section when i was taking it out here to inspect everything before winding it up i noticed there are a lot of deformities here now we pulled almost the winch it didn't time out i mean it didn't pull to its full capacity it never stopped pulling but it was very close but you can see there it's almost melted and warped and it's become very Difficult now, when you have these hidden winch mounts, you can't really see the drum and you can't control how it all winds up, but that's nothing unusual, these are very common.

The firs The time I used it the first time I used this line, but look at that is really hard and it feels like it's burned. I don't know if I would trust this more and it's a shame after a post. Same thing here looks like a garter stake that's been run over and sun dried but these are all the sections here where they're burnt and flat yeah I mean hard these things are convenient and nice. this synthetic line or if this is something the port charging winch suffers from maybe there is user air I don't know I've always used steel cable and never had a problem but even in places where it's not burned it seems a bit it's a little hairy and fuzzy you know I don't know you guys tell me if you have more experience with the synthetic line I mean it's all at all it's all about compromise right you sacrifice durability for weight I would probably recommend getting a backup roll? of this synthetic line if I were going to make a serious winch I don't know if it's going to break I just don't know but it doesn't look good as far as this end goes the perfect hook no problem huh the snatch block, that is, I wanted to use the port charge snatch block, so I didn't know if there were some problems with the design of this pulley or the shape it should have or a material that should be used with the synthetic line, but that's what we use and after of course the port load shackles are fine yeah no problem even under that load they still release perfectly so they're very nice so that's uh yeah guys I mean that's the uh that's the test and I have to say I'm a little dark I have to say that's a really strong winch what I like about it I like this wireless controller man I've never had that, that was so good I could, if I was pulling I could stop and I could ba jar and i could look um i could change position i could go into an area i felt safe e this is really good but i would say it was successful it was really good i just dont know about that wire that line i picked it up off the ground too this was a protective cover that went between red and black and it um kind of cut off when we were pulling I don't know what else I could have done I mean I mean as it was winding up before it tightened I made sure everything was nice and tight over there but uh it could be As it is steel cable could be in my future because that material is like iron ok I hope you enjoyed this if you didn't click thumbs up sooner I invite you to do it now, I will.
I'll get all the stuff together and make a quick video on the basic rigging stuff they should have. These are some basic skills that everyone should have, even if they don't have a wedge. They should understand how. to hook a chain how to rig goodness as an excavation contractor we had a lot of young s that came in and didn't even know how to hook it they knew nothing about hooking a chain so if you can master these fundamentals that I shared with you today you'll be in top five top percent of young men. if not the top one percent really know how to do these things because these are things you need to know you need to be huh a professional owner is a multitasker who wants to be a multitasker so thanks for watching god bless to you and your families please keep us in your prayers and we will see you all in the next slower or faster video more or less you guys
