A fun device that you can use to pull a bathtub over a field. Really funny to see.
Build: Spring 2010, scrapped winter 2012
We wanted to build a winch especially for field surfing. We did this before with a car with a welded diff. (There's no video of that) We had the modfied winch drum/rim still somewhere at our workshop.
We equipped a small trailer with a car engine & driveline of a Ford Mondeo and mounted the rim.
After sitting a long time without being used we decided to scrap it in the winter of 2012.
Engine: Ford Zetec 1800 16v (Ford Mondeo)
