It can operate directly from a 12 volt car battery or other suitable 12 volt supply and can be remotely operated via radio or cable. It has an optional bracket allowing direct attachment to the tow-hitch ball of a vehicle. It can also be attached by bolting it to the flat bed of a truck or any suitable flat surface, or anchored directly onto the ground.
