Nick's Lawn Care right now the flatbed will hit the roof before it runs into the winch. i'm just guessing but i think it has a 70-80 degree angle (haven't checked yet) as for adding a pulley and hooking back on the beam w/ the winch and getting a 2=1 gear ratio, i have thought about doing that but the pulley would have to be in the wet grass all the time. may try it though. that would give me about 16000 lb of pulling power. may change it later. thanks for every ones thoughts and questions!! keep 'em commin!
