If you're really smart, you'll avoid the whole "overturning" business.

UNAUTHORIZED FINGER: Before I watched the video, I imagined it was the Army field expedient method, using a truck rim on the drive-axle. Attach a rope, use the rim as a pulley, start the motor, put it in gear to roll the rope up, and voila! This also works to get unstuck from the mud.


I've watched people drill water wells in a similar way before. Of course it's dangerous as hell but it will work if you're too poor to afford a driller. I've also seen the aftermath of an accident from that method and it ain't pretty. I had a cousin whose arm was nearly torn off at the shoulder when he was 13-14 years old. Gruesome as hell. They saved his arm but he was farked up for a long time afterward. It would have been cheaper to hire a well driller in the end.
