Winches are engineered and built tough to be used in a variety of applications.
All gears are heat-treated high carbon SAE 1050 steel. Reel and pinion gear
shafts turn on oil-impregnated bearings for smooth operation. Winch frames
are embossed for added strength. Zinc plating fights against corrosion. Marine
Grade - Designed to withstand years of rigorous use.
NOT DESIGNED FOR DIRECT PULL
I recommend a double pulley system with all hanging feeders. Single pulley, direct pull set-ups are un-safe and much harder on your equipment.
*The Boss Buck winches are not a worm gear fitted system. You would need a worm geared winch if you intend to use a drill motor to crank up your unit. Otherwise the drill motor winds the cable on the Boss Buck winch too fast and it does not distribute evenly on the spool.*
