It loses five tons of cargo space, so it can only haul a 'Mech up to the size of a Banshee - no more Atlas or Dire Wolf salvage, sadly.  The reason for going with a tracked unit is so that it can reach through terrain obstacles that Wheeled vehicles can't get to, namely rough and light woods hexes.  You never know where you'll need to pull something salvageable out of.

Tod und Verzweiflung flammet um mich her!
Fühlt nicht durch dich Jadefalke Todesschmerzen,
So bist du meine Tochter nimmermehr!

What's one more Goblin in Kampfgruppe Wieczorek, really?  I like it, I do.  Only change I'd make is to keep the FF armor of the Goblin ISV, and lay it out 32/22/22/22.  BV and cost rise to 322 and 1,335,450 C-bills.

I like it. If only winches were more canon than a mention in MechForce Quarterly: turret-mounted, mass 1 ton for every twenty tons they can pull.

Oh of course. But I want Lift Hoists *and* winches on the same vehicle: one is essentially a robot arm, the other a coil of cable around a motorised drum, but both are useful on a recovery vehicle. Especially if the recovery vehicle is stuck itself.

Winches are freebies. See recovery vehicles in TRO3060.
