NOT rated to 1600 lbf

"Bought these as part of a truss jack system I was designing. Tested load strength on a known load of 700 lbf on the first layer of cable wind, and it stripped the gears on the drum. It is most definitely not rated for the 1600 lbf as advertised as it can not even handle 700 lbf. These are getting returned."

Looks good, but lousy instructions

"Just received this winch today. It appears to be well made. However, the instructions are virtually non-existent. There are no instructions as to how to load the cable and there is a bag of small parts with no instructions as to what they are for. If you h ave never owned a winch, you might do better buying another product that at least gives you a clue how to load the cable and what to use the miscellaneous parts for."

"This winch is made of quality components. The price is average based on other retailers I researched. I was able to get it on sale through notherntool.com . I used it to assist our hunting group to hang deer up while butchering."

Trailer winch

from Brainerd, MN
"Bought 2 for a crank up fish house. Work well, definitely a good winch for the money spent. Doesn't have a bolt to secure the end of the steel cable, though. Have to weave the beginning of the cable through a side hole. (Not uncommon on winches.)"

"This is really a great choice for a replacement winch, or where you just need one and don't have one. Good product!"
