If you had two snatch blocks, you could turn that 2500# winch into a 7500# winch in pretty short order.I've got a new 2500lbs winch could I use it and just use a snatch block if I needed would it be strong enough
I am usually short on cable without snatch blocks so if that's the plan carry extra straps. That tree is always just 5 ft farther.. lolIf you had two snatch blocks, you could turn that 2500# winch into a 7500# winch in pretty short order.
So, yes.......that would be enough....and trump the 4000 and 4500's along the way.
If you ever went with the good synthetic you would never go back to the wire cable. I have abused my amsteel blue and it is holding up great (3-4 yrs old). The wired cable didn't last me that long so I think it is paying for itself. Working with it is much easier also, none of those wires sticking out to draw blood.I went with wire rope. I feared synthetic may freeze and get stiff in very cold conditions.
That sounds about like the average price for the cheaper winches and mounts.Well Venom has a 3,500lb with syn rope and the mounting bracket for the pioneer for 244 is that a good deal?
