Straps because when chains break where you will be standing it may really hurt.

Oops,,,, Wrong.button,,, before I had a winch I used my hi lift on many occasion for winching.. I always carried at least 60 ft of straps, and about a 10 ft length of chain.. I used the chain to cinch up.. It's nearly impossible to cinch a strap up so the chain is about the only way.. I have a winch now, still carry the straps but no more chain..

I use chains to winch, theres no stretch to a chain like in a strap, for added length I have 2 30' lengths of 3/8 cable.
