The Pull-Pal is designed to be used as a winch anchor in situations where a tree or another vehicle is not available. Intended as a tool for winching through sand and mud, Pull-Pal's design relies on useful rules of physics. Its hefty plow blade sets firmly and safely into sand, clay, mud hard pan soil and snow. Pull-Pal gets you up and over hill stalls and minimizes dangerous situations. It allows you more control -- even when you are alone. Saves time, transmissions, and tires.
