Looked like a good technique to me.

I can't foresee myself getting into a situation where I would need to use it, but I will try to remember the method just in case.

I tried this to winch a 1.5t camper up a steep driveway. The pressure the levers are under when you are doing anymore than dragging something along a level ground is immense. I gave up within a couple of minutes and went and bought a Tirfor style winch.
This is an absolutely last resort type technique. IMO.
