Red face anchor and winch

What would anyone recommend to use as an anchor for winching if a tree were not close by or close enough to attach a the winch to? There are boat type anchors on line but they are pricey. Does anyone have any suggestions? If you have purchased one at a reasonable price please provide info. Thanks in advance!!

The nearest broke down RZR works really well, not that hard to find in the woods.

Anchors are very complex to deal with

If you get stuck in plenty of top soil screw in type anchors are best, get one from big building box store.
You MUST bury them up to the eye otherwise they will bend like a twig. Any other anchor you pound in will do also but you won't get them out again.
On hard rock things are different, I have seen people using high tensile climbing shackles that wedge into crevices and tighten up under load.
Whatever you do, carry plenty of high strengths rope and a section of suitable chain. use chain and rope together as rope will violently whip lash if it breaks. The piece of chain will prevent this as it collapses on itself
Stay safe and carry gloves, best is don't get stuck or attach to another vehicle

It depends on the ground/material. The pull pall seems very popular. Maybe a little pricey but compared to walking home lol? Also there is zero reason to carry a big chain around in a side by side. You can simply put a heavy jacket on the winch cable to keep it from snapping back. If you are in sand there are some youtube videos on using a buried tire and I've done it to test and it works very well. There is also the deadman bag. its a heavy duty mat you bury under the ground and it comes with 4 straps. think like burying a parachute and winching off that etc. I would do some more research and see what type of earth you may get stuck in and get the right anchor type for your situation etc.

Sure there are viable options to anchor, but....

The Pull Pal is very expensive ($800 plus) , -heavy and requires a lot of stowage space or a special mounting bracket.
I disagree with your opinion that there is zero reason to carry a chain. A lengths of high tensile Chain with proper chain hook is the most versatile , safe and rugged piece of emergency equipment you can carry. I don't leave home without it, complete with rugged spade (not folding) axle/tree straps and belt type come along. As for your concern about weight, a spare tire is heavy to.
Burrowing recovery equipment is for sure an option, in the 80's I had to bury the passenger door in the sands of Padre island to get my stuck Blazer (biggest piece of manure after Bronco i ever owned) out of a quick sand hole.
There are trade offs for everything and you are right, get what suits your situation, a reason I carry a chain saw to.......

No the Pull Pal is not $800, Its $400 at MOST. You dont need the full-size jeep or truck Pull-Pal, you only need the UTV specific 6,000 LB rated Pull-Pal. Its not bulky or heavy, It literally breaks down into two sections. I carry it on my roof rack tucked towards the back and dont ever notice it even there, but it is.

Thanks everyone for your input. We are new to the Teryx community but are adding new things as we go along to carry with us. We had to use the winch for the first time a couple weeks ago and its at that time my boyfriend mentioned an anchor. We have been looking for ideas since then. I will be checking in to the Pull Pal and go from there. Thanks again for all the responses!!

Angie? Your boyfriend wouldn't happen to be John would it?

Nevermind. If that is your zip code in your name, your not the Angie I was thinking of.

If you're in the mud a large boat anchor works. You can throw it in the back and strap it down.

Google- Red Rock Ground Anchor
