Any recovery mechanics out there give the difinitive answer to this question? (Probably not ) After a recent recovery exercise I had a running discussion with some of the instructors as to where the final connection is on a "W pull" using two Fodens. Now they say they that the final connection is at the winch rope end adaptors(Block on end of rope used to connect to chosen tackle) but I think this is wrong. Reasons why... When doing a 2:1 pull the final connection is at the casualty because if it started to fall, roll away etc then you will lose the winch rope end adaptor as it dragged through the snatch block(pully). Why is this logic not applied to the "W pull"? If the casualty shifts just before they are connected then you will lose the winch rope end adaptors from both trucks putting them both non taskworthy. Also to connect the winch rope end adaptors's you have to kick all the ropes together are putting yourself in a bit of a nasty situation should they suddenly go taught, you are also crossing apexs abeit with just your arm and a tool reccy mech. The only reason they could give for not having the final connection at the casualty was that there would be 2 final connections. And the problem with that is?? Simple answer they are unable to think laterally and could not see logic!! Can anyone come to my defence or give me an equally good reason why it is done the way it is?
