RATCHET OUT

The term "come-along" conjures images of spindly gizmos suited only for light duty, but
the More Power Puller, manufactured in Ohio by the Wyeth Scott Co. (wyeth-scott.com) since
1934, is a true hand-operated winch-possibly the most durably constructed such device in
the consumer realm. The 26-lb. unit, which measures 17"x6.5"x8", comes in 2- and 3-ton
ratings and relies on solid ductile iron and steel construction. The 3-ton model boasts a
12,000-lb. pulling capacity and 6,000-lb. dead-lift capability. Its coaxial-style frame makes it less prone
to flopping around during use than other designs, and its simple controls are easy to manipulate. Models are available with wire rope and AmSteel Blue synthetic rope ($258-$378) in 20- or 35-ft. lengths. Not light and not inexpensive, the More Power Puller is, nonetheless, a faithful brute that you'll be glad is on your side when the chips are down.

GRAB HOLD

What if there are no trees or boulders to serve as anchor points for your jack, come-along or winch?
No problem, just select a spot in the desired direction of travel and set your own anchor. The U.S.made Pull-Pal (pullpal.com) leverages mechanical force by biting into the terrain with ever-greater
tenacity as increasing load is applied to an attached line. With its large, plow-like blade and cantilevered, triangulated arm, the Pull-Pal works not only in solid ground but in sand, snow and mud, and a
loop allows retrieval with a rope. The 11,000-lb.-rated model shown here ($360) weighs 35 lbs., has a
10"x24" spade and folds to 47". It is designed for Jeeps through mid-size trucks, but one smaller and
two larger models accommodate ATVs and heavier vehicles, respectively. Optional accessories include
an exterior mounting kit and a padded soft case that also serves as a ground mat.
While it may not be necessary to carry all of the
items listed above, doing so will set you back no more,
cost- and weight-wise, than an electric winch outfit,
which typically requires a specialty bumper and/or
receiver mounts, the attendant wiring and an extra battery or heavy-duty alternator. And one big advantage
of the devices reviewed here is that they can be easily
transferred from one vehicle to another.

Another point worth mentioning is that using any
self-recovery gear can be dangerous. So be careful, read
and follow the manufacturers' instructions and warnings,
and wear eye protection and gloves. In the end, selfrecovery gear should help ensure that the next time you
venture into terrain that becomes difficult to traverse,
you'll be more likely to get back safely on your own.
