Those are pretty sweet. Those guys hooking that up and rigging everything have more balls than I do. Ain't no way is hell I'd lay a hand on any part of that other than the hook when that's spooling in that fast, or stand near it when they're putting it under load on a hillside.

Yeah, Europe has 4x4 competitions that emphasize winching. It's weird to me but some cool products have come about from it. I've been eyeing the gigglepin dual motor kit for warn 8274 for a few years.

I'm with you, I wouldn't put my hands anywhere near that winch while it was spooling! I was just amazed at how fast the line speed is. I visited their website (http://www.red-winches.com/) seems incredibly expensive to me, but maybe its not for a competition grade unit.

Yeah I've had an 8274 on a couple of pickups. Very good winch. I can't imagine a scenario where a guy would need anymore line speed than what they provide stock (cept maybe competition) but it'd be badass that's for sure!

SOB! I like that a lot! When doing chores around the property, I get inpatient waiting on the winch. :lol: It would be awesome for dragging trees, brush and what not.

I love my MU-2 on my 48', not horribly fast, but not to slow either. Really takes some "training" though and you learn not to get in a hurry. My 13yo daughter is learning the finer arts of running the winch pulling logs, fence posts, and brush around our property. Thought she was going to get a self recovery lesson last winter when she was driving out coyote hunting, but low gears and lockers saved the day.

That's hilarious. He made that so complex. If he used a few prussiks he could have possibly run everything parallel. However you slice it that guy out some time into that system and did a good job though! I didn't watch it all to see the right hand pulleys but it looks like a 32:1 system.

Interesting primitive setup. It would be a hell of a lot of work but might be a last ditch method if you didn't have any better options:
