Not just because you put it wherever you can hammer it in, but because the Pull-Pal needs to be pulled some distance before it bites in. Might be a short distance, might be right where you set it, but you won't know until you put tension on the line. The NATO anchor has a cost advantage over the bigger Pull-Pals (RW14000 and 16000), but the Pull-Pal is lighter (by about 30 pounds for the RW 14000). I don't live in a cold climate, but I would think the NATO anchor is more likely to work on wet ground that has frozen, assuming you have a big enough sledge and enough energy.You know where the anchor point will be during the entire process.
Good points fellas, makes it more interesting for sure. I'm sure it works it's just labor intensive, but if you had to relocate a pull pal before you got unstuck to do a second pull that would be way worse on the back than moving the nato probably. Hmmm
