They are very useful bits of kit, the gears wear eventually, but if the price were right (this is high) then id have bought it

They are quite remarkable bits of kit. I've got the slightly smaller T34 I think (sadly the winch not the tank!) - bought second hand for £40 years ago. They are very hard work to use though!
Never used mine to pull a 101 but it got my 109 out of trouble once or twice and I once saw one used to recover an 88 sideways when no-one could get near with an electric winch. Used it a few times for pulling and lifting other stuff though.

pulled trees with them for years!!!
there great!!!!
slow to set up, and work...... but it will move anything....... anywhere......
as long as its got a strong strap around an immovable object of sufficient size / weight.....
then its all up to the operator!!

bought my 1.6t tirfor copy (it's branded as lifting equipment) with a snatch block for about £200 before we went off down Africa, it's more than man enough to drag the ambi out of the gloop, brings you out a sweat though.

Have pulled an ambi plus loaded trailer backwards out of a bog with a cheaper copy and a snatch block.
Everyone should have one, hard work and lots of setting up/packing up involved though.
Will even pull 5 ton rocks across gardens, incredibly slowly!
