Default Sorrca definition needed.

Under 2019 course rules, under penalites, they list "retractable winch" in bold counting it as a 10 point penalty, where other winching is -3 pts. can anyone clarify this for me?

Where does a bungie + rock hook style winch fit in?

How many points does it cost to use say, a warn winch, or a servo winch?

That is an odd little phrase in there. But, because it falls under the "Assisted Recovery" section, it likely means something that a person has to touch/pull on to get the truck moving.

If you use an on-board winch, power by the truck, and other than connecting the hook no other touching is required, that would be +3.

I am not sure what a "bungie + rock hook style winch" is, but if it means a person pulling the truck then it is +10.

ty

kinetic winch uses the stored energy in the winch line to move the truck (mine has about 6 lbs of pull force at full extension.

A winch powered by the vehicle whether it be a "Warn", "Servo" or any other brand electric scale winch is +3 because it is powered out to an anchor point then powered in to move the vehicle, "self recovery".

Pretty much sums it up.

To get full extension or benefit from this style of recovery system, the power comes from the driver or a spotter. There for making it an assisted recovery not winching.
