9... Always be sure that at least five (5) full turns of winch cable are wrapped around the winch drum at all times... The friction provided by this wrapped cable allows the drum to pull on the winch cable and move the load...

Page 78

15... The winch motor may become hot during winch use... If you winch for more than 45 seconds, or if the winch stalls during operation, stop winching and permit the winch to cool down for 10 minutes before using it again...

Page 79

23... Unplug the remote control from the vehicle when the winch is not in use to prevent inadvertent activation and use by unauthorized persons...

Page 80

Take your time to think through the winching you are about to do... Proceed slowly and deliberately... Never hurry or rush during winching... Always pay attention to your surroundings... You may need to change your winching strategy if it is not working... Always remember that your winch is very powerful... There are simply some situations that you and your winch will not be able to deal with... Do not be afraid to ask others to help when this happens...

Page 81

Attach the hook itself onto the load or use a tow strap or chain to secure the load to the winch cable...

Page 82

7... Pulling out as much cable as possible maximizes the winchs pulling capacity... Always be sure that at least five (5) full turns of winch cable are wrapped around the winch drum at all times... The friction provided by this wrapped cable allows the drum to pull on the winch cable and move the load...

Page 83

11... The ONLY time a winch-equipped vehicle should be moving when using the winch is when that vehicle itself is stuck... The winch equipped vehicle should NEVER be in motion to shock load the winch cable in an attempt to move a second stuck vehicle... See the Shock Loading section on page 84... For your safety, always follow these guidelines when winching a vehicle free:

Page 84

12... Never attempt to winch another stuck vehicle by attaching the winch cable to a suspension component, brush guard, bumper or cargo rack... Vehicle damage may result... Instead, attach the winch to a strong portion of the vehicle frame or hitch...

Page 85

A winch cable made of synthetic rope should be inspected for signs of fraying... Replace the cable if fraying is observed (shown below)... Promptly discontinue use of a winch cable in this condition... Also replace the winch cable if there are fused or melted fibers... Such an area of the synthetic rope will be stiff and appear smooth or glazed... Promptly discontinue use of a winch cable in this condition...

Page 86

1... Never attempt to jerk a load with the winch... For example, never take up slack in the winch cable by moving the winching vehicle in an attempt to move an object... This is a dangerous practice... It generates high winch cable loads that may exceed the strength of the cable... Even a slowly moving vehicle can create large shock loads in a winch cable...

Page 87

6... Never replace a synthetic-rope winch cable with a consumer-grade polymer rope such as can be purchased in a hardware store... Although they may look similar, they are NOTalike... A polymer rope not designed for winch use will stretch and store excessive energy when winching...
