    Here's another tool I never hear about - yes, its pricey but, as the salesmen say "you can pay for it in one weekend if you get lucky" lol. It seems with lower
    water levels this year, one could access the gut of most rivers with this or another brand.

    I used to have a griphoist but my little Lewis chainsaw winch was a lot easier so I sold it. Now I have hydraulics and the old Stapp winch in this video is long gone. Personally I still prefer a 300ft cable, some snatch blocks and making a pulling trail for my 4wd because it's the fastest and easiest way to move boulders. Then when you couple the speed of a truck with the speed of our speed pulling nets that we designed, you drop the net, it falls over the rock, yell pull and away it goes. You can pull a boulder totally out of the way every 3 minutes. And that's 3 minutes from the time of grabbing the net from the boulder you just moved and then walking it back up to the next one and dropping it over that next boulder you have to pull. So when we go out into the bush we take a gas operated winch when there is no other access. A good wheelbarrow will move all of the winching equipment at once.
    Here's a playlist link, the first movie is how to run your winch and the second is how to make the "Morrison Speed Sling" that we always use. We make a few for each year when we are really moving a lot of boulders.

    I have one of these kits made by Dayton of which is a 10 ton press. The circled item is great for seams in rock that you want to open. With the other attachments you can move boulders out of the way. Also have a winch.

    That is a serious miner's "Xmas catalogue". I remember scanning that or similar catalogue years ago for weeks finding stuff on my wish list. The fact they
    are selling to non-profit and gov't agencies to build hiking trails using my tax dollars, doesn't matter in this case - they've got GREAT GOODIES

    We high-lined it back onto the trailer from the river. Had to raise it 35feet or so into the air to get it back up and bring it over.

    Reed I am sure you have. Seen the video of you all winching the 3 wheel cart to the river. I was just poking fun at FS expense. Yet FS would somehow find away to ticket me with my luck of late.
