WAY back when, we did a Recovery demo up on Main Divide, and had MuddyGrrl and Cowboy4X4 give us some education and tips on Winching, use of straps, and the Hi-Lift. Below are links/videos that were taken at that point.

Also, I found a BUNCH of Hi-Lift info/videos on YouTube from the Hi-Lift company. Good viewing, and info on the differences in the lift models.

Thanks for those... missed the session at Main Divide but caught the ones at Big Bear by the TT team. Actual hands on always better than the manual... right after Big Bear I came home and practiced. Still want the air bag one though...

Great info and glad to see it shared. This is the kind of suff everyone needs to know. Less towtruck bills and more limbs and appendages will stay attached.
Hmmmmm. Your tow truck comment reminded me of my first offroad run at Rowher flats, where FJEssence ended up needing a tow. We MIGHT have been able to help him out, if another one of us had a hi-lift, or had thought of using it to do more than LIFT the truck. It is good to think of it as more than just a 'lift'.
