John:  Me too - the point is, if the trimmers are there anyway, extra cost is small to zero.
 
Used a small length of chain, w/ poly tubing over it to spare the pine limb and a shackle to close the loop - small pulley with marine rope.  Did this after our Rita scare 3-1/2 years ago;  now I can lower away, run for the hills, and pull 'er back up in 2 minutes.
 
I've done all the other methods, and can still see a 5/8th" crescent wrench higher up in the pine which went up 15+ years ago, and never came down (yet).
 
Go fer it, 73 de Lee, W5JQA, Houston
