How can I get 10 000 LB (4544 KG) of power with the winch?

If you attach one pulley to the load, a second pulley and the end of the rope at the winch anchor point, you multiply the strength by 4, less the losses due to friction. However, it’s not always practical or safe to have the winch anchored to the same point as the rope end and the pulley. In that case, if you anchor the winch to another anchor point, the strength will be reduced depending of the angle. But it is more practical to have a single and a double pulley than two double pulleys.
