Ok — I’m under no illusions that this is a quality winch or even that it’ll pull its rated 2,000 lbs. However, that said, this is a useful piece of gear at $60. It’d be quite handy for dragging items around the shop or even for loading smaller stuff.
Even if you were only to take this apart and use it for building something else, it’s a pretty good deal: a 1.5 HP motor, a planetary gear system, and a bunch of cable for $60.
