Good fun winching the van onto it's final resting place, my mate's Warrior got it to here before loosing traction, also we had to have a good position to unhook him as no way would it go all the way up connected, the scaffold boards would not have stayed there

That's epic.

In the third image one of the vans wheels is off the ground!

Do you get more pull from using a blockand tackle at the top?

Alan

yep it was great fun, for me, all I had to do was press buttons on the winch control, for the others I think it was quite hard work, but then they have youth on there side, Rick

yes one block at the top reverses the pull from my winch motor then 2nd block on the van doubles the winch power, Rick
