On this video I use a continuous loop, a snatch block, a recovery chain and the winch from my tow truck to recover a 2001 Mazda 626. The motorist slid off the road and couldn't move the car. I use a red continuous loop wrapped around a tree so that the tree doesn't sustain any damage. One thing you must be concerned with when recovering vehicles is property damage. A soft strap or continuous loop will save you time and possibly money in the long run if you are able to avoid damaging a customer's or property owner's trees.
