LOOK FOR SOMETHING ELSE!
DO NOT BUY!. I had to wait 3 months to receive this winch, as it was on backorder from manufacture. The winch arrived with defective solder connections, forward & reverse are opposite on the manual controls, the light does not work, it is very loud, slow and most of all.......it does not have the strength to pull my Lund Tyee onto the trailer which it is suppose to be rated for. SAVE YOUR MONEY AND BUY SOMETHING ELSE.

Works if Set up Right
I experienced the same negative results as many others(low pulling, slipping, etc.) First, the winch mounted perfectly in the holes from my hand winch. Second, the clutch knob on the side didn't seem to work, however, I tightened it with a pipe wrench and the winch works flawlessly. I mounted a lawn tractor battery in a battery box on my trailer and ran a ground and a charging wire through my seven wire connector to the battery. The battery runs the winch perfectly whether connected to my vehicle or not, and the battery charges when it is connected to my truck. Also, I only recommend the which with the strap as the cables are and can be a pain. My boat is a 17' lund with a 90 and an 18 horse motor.

I ordered the winch even tough it was back ordered to my surprise i received my winch in just 4 days I was very happy with the fast shipping.the winch installed and fit my winch stand exactly as stated in the instructions. I drilled the two holes needed for mounting and bolted it on . and now the reason for the 4 stars. first the emergency manual crank handle is useless for a heavy boat metal is cheap and not long enough. second reason the lanyards for the connection covers were made from cheap sewing thread and were broken before I even installed the winch. I had to remove the cover and replace the lanyards with heavier nylon line now everything is ship shape the winch works perfectly but it was a day long project.
