In these pictures the logs have been shortened. In real life they should be as big as you can work with. The lever is practical up to about 8 ft. or 2.5m long. The longer the winch log the more stable this device is but too long makes it so stable you can not turn or flip it
|Place the rope over the winch log and under the lever log. The
lever is under the winch. Start tightening the rope by moving the
lever pole like it is in the next frame.
Move the rope so that the winding is done on one side of the lever.
Continue flipping the winch pole and winding with the lever pole until you have winched your load to where you want it.
