    Ah yes, slow controlled pull of a big winch, while a snatch strap is a quick way to pull a stuck vehicle out, when a little gentle pull is going to do the job, a big winch is better when something is really stuck.

    Amazing what parts either method can pull off a vehicle.

    I think Ferro still has the record for the most pulled via a deuce pintle when he used Bella to pull eight loaded 100 ton ballast cars and a locomotive off a barge at the Norfolk railhead.

    Ferro is one of the few people I've met who a)could pull this off safely and b)I would consider attending the event with (as opposed to avoiding the s-show at all costs) because I'd probably learn a thing or 2.

    Clevis in the Pintle. I have just learned something. Thanks to all for the great replies, It looks like the Pintle is indeed up to the mundane tasks I might throw at it this winter.
