A set of wire strainers & some fence wire ~ a poor mans winch. Have used them a couple of times to get the cars out when stuck in mud.
Every one knows a coat hanger is good for unlocking a locked car when the keys are in it.
Coat hanger wire is fine when you dont have hose clamps.
Good for when you dont have a safety chain for your trailer.
Their uses are endless !!
we call that bailing wire... farm fence wire down here means either chicken wire, or hog wire...
