Ever seen an Easy Crank Winch Socket?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone tried one of these? Check out the videos on utube. I'm just not sure if I want to be the first to buy one around here, I fall for everything and it is $50 with shipping. My 8 x 16 is a hard cranking house, this might work but I wonder how many times a battery lasts for.

This thing looks incredible!

Got a link? I have had a couple on boat trailors,Dont know if they are what you speak of?? The hand crank winches I used were a extra gear added.More cranking but less resistance.Just geared down for heavier loads.

Just looked at utube,Heck you can do that your self for using a battery operated drill motor.Just replace or grind down the spindel to accept a impact socket.

Good idea, but how is this different from a normal socket or impact socket?

Doesn't Sears or any other socket manufacturer make one that would fit?

Another question is-that house has compound pulleys on it which might make it actually easier to lift than my single. Is that thinking proper math? Mine is a real bear to crank, how in the world can a drill do that? Another thought, that winch must have brakes on it. If I take off my handle and the safety I'm going to be in freewheel, I wonder how that will work.

I noticed that their comment on the YouTube video contains the HSOforum address The address is incorrect. Missing the "n" in winch.

I contacted him and let him know.

http://www.winchdrivertools.comI went with ICNUTS that cheap easy crank winch socket was junk I have been using ICNUTS for 4 years now great product life time warranty winchdrivertools.com there tool did not damage my winch shaft like the eazy crank socket did. I had a friend with an ez up adapter and that also damaged his winch no fun having handles fall off winch shafts.

This is my OLD post. I went with Nutz too. The easy crank guy never answered the phone or returned repeated emails. Nutz guy answered and price on his winches was very good, he even offered me free parts to fix a winch I had on my boat!

Yeah I was really impressed by ICnuts Company wish every place had service like that these days . Hopefully he will succeed I know it's a small family business that is really trying hard. I know it's hard to build a business these days but I found his pricing below most others and they do free priority shipping as well and his tool system is lifetime warranty I think they will do good I seen a post last year that they donated to veterans at icog and that's how I found there company meant allot to me .

    • pulled the sled out, turned the key after putting in fresh gas, and it fired up spot on. seems to want to go, as it jumped at a little throttle, bring on the snow, its ready.
    • Del is correct 3ea 12v batteries in series are required to get 36v. 2 in series to get 24v and each battery 12v. You can connect a + and - wire to each individual battery, while wired in series, and run 3 separate 12v isolated devices. A + and - to either of 2 in series gives you 24v.   You NEED a "3 bank marine charger" which has 3+ and 3- charging wires which charges the 3 batteries independent of each battery. When one battery reaches full charge, that bank shuts off other 2 banks continue to charge until respective batteries are fully charged. Batteries will not overcharge.    You can run both 36v and 24v motors on a 3 in series batteries but DON'T run both at the same time. Current draw on the 2 24v batteries will greatly reduce battery life and under serve current on the 36v motor.   Best solution is separate battery banks and chargers for each motor and a separate 12v for starting motor and running 12v electronics.    Suggestion, carry a set of jumper cables long enough to reach from the battery bank to your primary motor battery. If your starter battery dies 5 miles off shore, just jumper to any one of the trolling motor batteries to start your engine.
    • Well that game went about as expected. Was worse for me, because my directv went out, so I had to listen to the game. Couple plays I wish they would have done differently...go for the touchdown at the end of the first half, instead of field goal. And when it was 4th down midway through the 4th quarter, they should have kicked the field goal instead of going for it. Was fun having a top ten ranking while it lasted. That loss guaranteed gameday won’t be here for Wisconsin game.
    • You definitely want a salt shield as it will keep SOME slush gravel  etc off of the sleds but plenty still comes over so you want to have a quality cover on your sled to
    • I have wondered what happens to those mallards that the kids feed bread to all summer on Vermilion when duck season starts...  Summer... walk out on the dock and here they come....  Fall ????
    • All the corn I have starts with an A.  And I have plenty of them.  A couple houses hung too.  Spose I should put the Free Food and Lodging sign And get some more takers. 🌰🦆👨‍🍳
    • You know if you feed them corn all summer, they are extra tasty and easy to shoot in the fall...😀
