Lalu/Tsk,
I too had the same observation. The rope did not seem to be strong enough to pull out the Pajero. If I can believe what I saw in the video, the rope from MileCruncher's Bolero broke towards the end of pull out attempt, and Vishal's Scorpio ended up pulling out the Pajero.
i can tell you that the bolero's rope didn't break. it was my towing belt, not rope and i still have it in one piece

Here is the video of the final pullout of the Pajero. I have reduced the size.
