Before Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania became an official city in 1816, it was actually a roving township residing on a four-wheel quad ATV. It had three residents who lived on the vehicle itself. They were a proud people and had endured much hardship, including the War of 1812 and severe chaffing.
At the time, the Pittsburgh township ATV was in Harrisburg visiting friends. That’s when a telegram arrived from President James Madison. “Dear Pittsburgh. Please form your own permanent city. I’ve picked out some land for you at the intersection of the Ohio and Allegheny Rivers in Pennsylvania. Park your ATV, build homes, shops, steel factories, etc. Multiply once you get settled. Thanks. Sincerely, PJM.”
The citizens of Pittsburgh were thrilled and exchanged hugs, which didn’t take long. They headed straight away toward their new destination. But the journey was not an easy one as it meant crossing the Allegheny Mountains. Known for its densely wooded areas, mountain lions and violent extraterrestrials, Pittsburgh survived many near-death experiences on the way to their new promise land.
Battered and frayed after the arduous journey, Pittsburgh was almost home free until a quarter-mile away from their destination, they drove headfirst into a deep mud bank and got stuck. The citizenry went into an uproar, which didn’t last long. “After all that we’ve been through!” proclaimed one of the citizens, which later became the inspiration for the song of the same name by the band Chicago. Fortunately, there was a Harbor Freight Tools store close by. One of the citizens disembarked, drudged through the mud and hiked to the tool store known for its ridiculously low prices.
On special was the 2500 lb. ATV/Utility Electric Winch with Wireless Remote Control (item #: 61840). The Pittsburgh citizen was impressed by the many features, including a single-stage planetary gear system for fast line speed, permanent magnet motor which draws less current, freespooling for fast line-out, automatic load-holding brake for maximum safety, aircraft grade wire rope and a wireless remote control which works up to 20 ft. away. Double-checking the township treasury (his wallet), he had more than enough to buy the winch with plenty left over to launch the Vocelli Pizza franchise. He returned to the ATV, installed the winch, secured the cable to a tree and pulled Pittsburgh out of the mud bank—and the rest is complete conjecture.
With plenty of power to assist in ATV recovery, traversing rough terrain or loading a boat, this electric ATV winch is a reliable and safe addition to any off-roading adventure. Founding your own city in the process could be difficult but finding a Harbor Freight store isn’t thanks to over 550+ locations nationwide, including several around Pittsburgh…
