it aint that simple, a 12,000 lb rated winch will do it BUT that rating is only for the first wraps of line on the drum, if you have to fill the drum spool to reach a tractor sitting onthe ground behind the trailer you wont have nearly that much pull, the other factor is power if you buy the cheapest 12 volt battery you can, then use 4 gauge cables you'll be stuck with the load halfway to where you need it to be with a dead battery, you need to spend some money in this dept something like a 8d battery and 1 gauge or 0 gauge cables, this battery is in heavy equipment and its huge and heavy, but it will work far beyond other sizes the big cables insure you get the amps the winch motor needs to make power under a load
