If your vehicle is sitting on the differential housings or frame Setup B in example A will not work .In this situation pull out all of your winch cable (be sure to leave at least 5 turns of cable on your drum), pull in the ground anchor until a substantial load is applied to the winch. Deploy your spare wheel or other round object as seen in Setup A in Example A. Make sure to dig sand /soil away form the tires and differential housing/frame.
On loose sand hills Setup A is correct coupled with a steady low speed controlled wheel spin in low ratio, which will give the vehicle continued forward motion. This controlled wheel spin also helps prevent the vehicle from sinking. Setup B in example B is incorrect for this type of situation.
If you do not have assistance and you are deploying the Ground Anchor in hard soil, a hole approximately 12” deep will be necessary to the Ground Anchor .The hole should be in the shape of a spade.
There are a few reasons to cause the Ground Anchor to plough.
- Too loose of soil
- Over burden on ground, such as leaves, sticks ect….
If this happens continue to pull the Ground Anchor for 2 or 3 yards to clear away the problem material and then reset again at the start in the same trench.
- Deploying the Ground Anchor too close to the vehicle will increase the steepness of the cables angle which may cause it not to stink down in the ground.
- Check the angle pin is in the correct position for the type of soil you are using the anchor in.
