I looked for the video for a while but a year or more ago I saw the ultimate winch for tubing! I would think it would be easily adapted to anything else. <BR> <BR>List of steps from my point of view: <BR>1. Back truck up to spot you'd like to winch <BR>2. jack up truck, remove tire <BR>3. wind rope around wheel/rim <BR>4. tie to tube <BR>5. put in drive and hit the gas! <BR> <BR>That tube was going at least 40! it was insane, scary and dangerous! Looked fun

I did alot of research and found plans to make one. I eer eded up doig it. heres some links that might be helpful <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.bulletlines.com/servlet/the-Wakeboard-Winches/Categories" target="_blank">http://www.bulletlines.com/servlet/the-Wakeboard-Winches/Categories</a> <BR> <BR>I have more links but cantseem to find them. just look aroud on the net. Essentially its just a frame, spool, i think about a 6.5 hp motor, and a torque-a-verter, and some gears (bike sprockets work) optional brake on the spool. Pretty simple.

Here is what you need to build a winch.. Of course you also need a frame and spool.. The engine brand also doesnt matter.. <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/548905.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR> <BR>1. Briggs and stratton (at least 6.5HP) probably around 300 USD <BR>2. Torq-a-verter brand CVT cover and transmission... around 180 USD <BR>3. driven sprocket (i dunno how many teeth that sprocket is but you can use anywhere from 56 to 72 tooth sprocket with a 7 to 8 inch spool... about 30 USD <BR>4. looks to be about 10ft of chain... #35 pitch chain is preferred but #41 will work as well approx 15 USD <BR>5. Belt for the CVT comes with #2 <BR>6. hitch pin for transporting winch using the hitch of a car <BR>7. pillow block bearings, holds shaft onto the frame... approx 30 USD <BR>8. Gocart axle... 30 in long, cut to fit your frame... approx 30 USD <BR>9. ibolt can be used for rope guidance 2 USD <BR>10. Fairlead rollers for rope guidance onto the spool 10 USD <BR> <BR>Ken Land <BR>Bullet Lines <BR><a href="http://www.bulletlines.com" target="_blank">www.bulletlines.com</a> <BR><a href="http://www.wakeboarding-winch.com" target="_blank">www.wakeboarding-winch.com</a>
