Forward or reverse directions
The Bush Winch operates from any powered wheel on your vehicle and therefore on a 4WD the front or the back wheels. On a 2WD either the front or back wheel can be used depending on whether your vehicle is a front or real wheel drive vehicle. Whether 4WD or 2WD the vehicle can be made to winch forward or backwards.
Winch around bends
By winching to an anchor point to the side of the vehicles forward path tricky obstacle and corners can be negotiated. This is particularly useful if, say, the vehicle was in a gutter and you wanted the vehicle to pulled out of the gutter rather than sliding along it. Using the Rope Guide in this situation allows for even greater angles to the side and is a fantastic aid.
