If you got your welder out to work on your snatch block here is something else you can do. I copied it from the way Igland blocks are set up. Put a shackle with a Pinocchio nose on it. It allows me to set the strap on the tree w/o dealing with the 12 lb weight of the snatch block. Once I have the strap set where I want it I get the snatch block, slip the strap thru the shackle and over the nose - done, that quick and easy. I drilled the shackle holes out to 5/8" so I could use the bolt or a pin.

Sounds like a real nice winch 47. Your review should be interesting I will be looking for it !!

I'm running for the welder right now!  Great idea!
Also running for the welder since my main drive roller chain on the Igland blew apart for the second time this winter.  It took some chunk-o-summin' out apparently cause I found some flat iron shrapnel on the ground.  
8" snow is started here, but I was out and about by 6am this morning, so got more than a few hitches in before it happened.  

I gotta get food, a rest and ready to plow tonight

Thanks for the idea of modifying the snatch block.I found some things hanging on the barn and put this together.I will put it to work tomorrow.


Weldment to keep cable from jamming.

I really appreciate this forum and the collective knowledge that is shared here.
