The guys over at GitOut.com shot a video of WARN Technical Service Representitive, Steve Schoenfelder, giving a winching class at an Oregon event. This video offers some great tips for both first-timers and well-versed winchers; from rope condition to pulling, this is a very good fundamentals video.
