I don't usechainweightthat I don't have but Willy pulls along quite easily and I've probably got the weakest winch on the forum. If the wind's not blowing we just winch up to the anchor. If the anchor isn't set very hard or if it (for other reasons) breaks out easily my little guy is even up to that but if I feel any resistance I back down to break out. A Claw can burry quite deep and take a bit of work to get them out.
