Does anyone know of a good winch anchor? I recently got hung up out in the high desert with nothing to hook my winch to. I am looking for something relatively light and foldable. I could make something but if it already out there, why reinvent?

I have looked at both suggestions. They seem too big and too expensive. They both seem to be used mainly for pulling out jeeps and trucks.

Cabelas makes something called the Earth Anchor. I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with this product.

The other thing I was looking at was a flute boat anchor. You can get smaller ones and they are a lot less expensive.

I know the boat anchor is not as strong as the other two options. But let's face it. The machine is only a 1000#. If I bury the anchor and it does not work, I will just have to dig the machine out.

The one person said the right tool for the right job. I agree, that is why I think the other two options are overkill. They are made for full size vehicles not a P500.

I really wish the P500 had true 4 wheel drive and not just a limited slip in the front. However, for the price it is a fantastic fun machine.

I want to see a vid of them pulling one of those out of the sand after it is sunk up to the top of the rod
