Listen to cfarm.His advice is right on the money.He is much better than me at managing the slash left behind.Yesterday I channeled my inner Ray and went back and cut up my slash to the Ray size.it makes a big difference.
The other tip that worked beyond great was to put a rolling hitch on to spin the log to limb the bottom branches.
Many thanks.

@thecfarm 
@Hilltop366 

Got into bit of a bind with the new (to me) winch on saturday...hauling out my first twitch and the pull rope must have came loose and got caught on my studded chains and bent the engagement lever like it was a piece a piece of spaghetti.



 



 
 
those little pulleys that control the level are some frigging strong i would have thought the rope would break long before he steel would bend...but i guess thats the power of pulley ratio....

Needless to say a trip to the in-laws and some torch work got the lever back to a point that looks somewhat normal.  Also cleaned up the friction disc and plates on the chain sprocket and cable spool.



 

It seems to pull pretty well but the thickness of the friction material makes me wonder whether it needs a new piece (pictured to the right of the sprocket).  I was expecting a brake pad type of affair like newer winches...

Anyhow I got things back together sunday morning and pulled out several trees from around the house...no problems except coming up against rocks and stumps...the clutch just seems to slip and not try to pull the tractor any.  This picture is at the end of the day

The slipping is normal, mine will slip too. Need something to give or something will break!!
I have seen my winch tip over rocks, dig up roots and still keep a coming!! Than sometimes I have a hard time moving the log.  ???  Just never know.
Sorry about the problems you had, just a learning now ain't ya.  ;)
There is a "L" welded on mine. Gives me a place to loop the rope onto.

I had to adjust the clutch mine this weekend, it was slipping a bit too easy.

At idle or just above I have to be careful no to stall the engine, if I do it just right I can make the tractor engine run backwards too!!

I can't tell for sure but to me it looks like with that size tractor and frozen ground the winch should pull the tractor around a bit before it slips. But you have to pull pretty hard on the clutch rope to get a good hard pull. How much does your tractor weigh ? Can you here the motor strain before it slips ?

The winch will pull the tractor a bit with a good hard pull on the rope.  Tractor weighs roughly 6500lbs not including tire chains.  The engine will strain a bit while pulling but nothing major, I have opted to increase the RPM up a bit from idle since I seemed to get better results that way.   This past weekend I pulled out about 10 trees the small softwood pulls great its when i get to pulling in the hardwood they tended to plow snow up in front of the themselves and stop dead or get against the edge of the crusty snow and stop.

I've got the bug now though cutting and hauling out trees is addictive.  Good thing I have lots to clear out  :D
