Life Saver

from Terry, Ms
"I bought this winch to mount on a car hauler trailer. While hunting I sunk my 7,000 lbs. new Avalanche 1 mile into a swamp. I hauled my Kabota tractor out there to pull it out & sunk it beside the Avalanche in the same creek. No one would help me other than a $400.00 bulldoser. We tried come alongs, 4 wheelers, a motor hoist & chains for a week. Finally this winch came in. I chained the winch high in a tree & literally lifted the tractor out of the creek. Then I was able to pull the Avalanche out with the winch & my tractor. No harm done to my new truck or the tractor. A Life Saver. I have pictures of this."

Great dock winch

,
August 13, 2012
By Dulcimera
from Wisconsin
"We live on the Mississippi River and this year we had to move our 45 ft. dock multiple times to accommodate the river's level. We use this winch to pull in the dock when the river rises (our boat pulls the dock out when it falls) and it has been a great performer. No obvious straining, even on an uphill incline. We mounted the winch down at the beach and keep it and a marine battery with a solar charger down there at all times. All but the solar charger are covered to protect them from the elements. This was a great buy!"
