Default Draw Bar II

I noted the nice job jb62901 did with his drawbar and thought I'd show the one I constructed about 6 years ago. Since I had the quick hitch, I built the drawbar to fit it. And since I hate to paint and only lived about 15 miles from a place that galvanizes steel, I had both the quick hitch and drawbar galvanized. I realized later that I had no way to hook up my 8,000 lb Warn winch, so I built the hitch receiver to fit over the 2" ball. So far the only thing that has broke was the winch when I tried to winch out a 20" log and it caught on a stump.

Very nice build on the draw bar and haulling a goose neck!

I am a little confused about the winch. Where and how was that mounted?


Thanks,
Scott

Pat get yourself a snatch block from A.W. Direct and place it on your winch line. The proper size snatch block will double your line's pulling power from 8,000 to 16,000lbs and it take some of the stress off the motor and gears.

Yep, the more you have on a line the more weight you can move with less effort. Just like the old school block and tackle system.
