    Default Need chainsaw winch/help please...stuck bad

    hello folks, I know there's a fella on this forum with a big jet boat that requires a big chainsaw winch when grounding out.

    I'm stuck in the muck in my vehicle and need a chainsaw winch get on dry land. My front tires are about 2 ft from dry land. I've driven to my neighborhood lake over a dozen times in 2wd. After the rains, the side of the trail was wet/soft and I sunk a tire in the muck. After locking into four wheel drive and trying to work through it, it sunk deeper off the hard gravel trail....and slipped into the muck. So much so, that my front passenger side tire lifted off the ground, and i'm taking water on the rear drivers side.

    Anyhow, I'm going out there to try and recover from the bottomless pit by winching with a high lift jack. I'm right here in the valley. give me a call if you have equipment to help as I don't think a high-lift jack has the power. two trucks tied in tandem tried to help.....they sheared 10,000 lb straps.

    Call me, I'll be out there hand-winching

    I have a 40,000lb strap and a Hemi?
    We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, banks anywhere that we may be placed

    You need a Cummins to match that 40,000lb strap...

    I would try and find someone with some logging equipment, specifically some cables and blocks. Sorry to hear, wish I was closer to lend a hand.

    thanks to whoever offered via phone. A fella stopped by with a large 5.7 v8 powered toyota sequoia, got a better vantage point (made his own trail), and ripped me out of the muck with a chain.

    that's fine mt, I wish it didn't "happen" The carnage: Front drivers side axle seal leaking diff oil, both front spring shackles destroyed. Getting yanked out with such brute force is not kind to 24 yr. old front end parts. At least the entire steering system if fine. The birfields are still chipper too, those aint cheap.

    Front seal/bearing rebuild kit:
    $160 per side
    Front Shackles: $111

    Wheel and bearing grease, mud, contaminated gear oil......nasty/dirty work.
