Excellent Winch

This is a very well make winch that I have used many times for on-loading and off-loading lawn tractors and motorcycles from my utility trailer. I have it mounted on the forward railing and power it by hooking the alligator clamps of a 12 volt Battery Booster to the power leads of the winch. It performs great and is an excellent product. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a winch of this size.

It works right now

I put the winch on a 12', tandem-axel, flat-bed trailer. It was easy to install, although I did have to manufacture some installation pieces needed for my specific trailer. It pulled my 2006 Gravely commercial Z152 zero-turn, which I had to take to the dealer and have a new drive belt installed, onto the trailer with no problem. I have a 1970 Kubota L185 small tractor (1,645 lbs) and a 2005 Farm Pro 2420 tractor (2,260 lbs) that I most likely will have to take and have some work done on them. I'll find out if and how well the winch will pull them onto the trailer and will file an updated report at that time. So far, so good.
