Boat winch

"I use this winch to pull my boat out of the water into my boat house. My boat sits on a homemade cart that rides on two rails that go into the lake. This winch handles the job with ease."

Great lifting power! Do not use when wet!

By DavidND
from Fargo, ND
"This has great lifting power for our 22' pontoon.
Love the remote, you can stand back from the winch and feel safer if the cable were too snap and come up and hit you in the face, arm or body.
However, be sure to protect the remote from rain. While rain does not hurt it, using it while wet will fry it! I need to order a replacement remote and will protect it in a plastic box to keep it dry."

My 3rd hand in the shop

,
April 26, 2013
By zombieprepared
from Largo, Florida
"When I put up my shop, I mounted two of these to the ceiling and left them strung down to where I could get to them. I often use them both separate and together to lift heavy stuff off my truck and trailer. When I bring home a heavy axle (such as this 600 pound 14 bolt I worked on today), being able to lift it up and hold it suspended in the air by both cables makes it very easy to grind on/clean/paint/work on. I couldn't have asked for a better shop tool."

A good winch

"This winch is a great back saver! We used it for a 2 ton dead pull with no problems. Only problem we had was with the cable kinking up, which then needed to be cut and recrimped."

Electric winch

,
January 14, 2008
By sacandaga
from Corinth, NY
"I used the winch in an unconventional way. I needed to pull some heavy docks up onto the shore across about 100' of rocky beach. I mounted the winch to a hunk of 4x4, lashed the 4x4 to a big pine tree, and plugged it in to an outside outlet using a 100' heavy duty lead. My daughter worked the remote button while two of use "helped" the dock sections along with crude rollers and a pry. We observed the 2 minute limitation on continuous use,so the job took some time, but it worked! I did find some cable pinch on rewind, but I think that was because of the unstable monting I was using. Good product, and worth the $ even if I only use it once a year."
