"I bought this to assist me getting out of trouble and moving broken branches whilst greenlaning. I'm aware the capacity is not a full on off road winch, but it'll happily pull you out of a rut. It's design allows an easy fitment to a towing hitch or using a shackle, a towing eye on the front of the vehicle can be used. I've read this winch can be used to unwind a load as well as its designed pull only. This is achieved just by reversing the polarity on the battery clips, but I haven't tried this yet.
"Have only used this a few times but it does exactly what it claims to. Ours is kept in dry conditions, so we can't vouch for what would happen if it were exposed to weather for any length of time, but the quality seems reasonable, the performance adequate for occaisional use and the value for money is excellant. I bought it for a specific job, but can see myself using it more often, if only to save my aging back."
"This is not a winch...It only pulls...so you cant use it for most things...there is no way you can reverse the winch. So if you are pulling something and want to take off the hook..You cant...its about as much good as a chocolate teapot."
