Bump.
Yep I was looking at those nice Honda powered capstan winch , but close to $2000 I find it hard to justify.

I can see big old gear drive saws getting a second life putting them back to work.
Rig up a anchor plate and mount for a capstan drum (from Honda unit) bolted to the bar  pad. Driven by a short loop of 1/2" cutterless chain off the spur sprocket.
Making a living with a saw since age 16.
