Hand Winch Covers

Recommended Posts

those with ice houses, do you have some covers for your winches to keep off the mositure/salt? I see Etrailer has some that should suffice for about $10-12 each, just dont know if its worth it or not if I just keep up with lubricating?

Replaced my winches with total covered 12V power winch. Small cable slot on wheel winches only opening. DIY house is at 1000# fully loaded so 1 ton winch works well.

Darv - Do you know what the amp draw is on the winches?

@rl_sd initally i fused each winch at 10 amp. Ran it up/down about 5 times. Put another 250# in house simulate another person. Poped 1 fuse on 3rd cycle. So amp draw is just under 10 amp. Now fused to 15 amp. Need to know house total weight is just under 1,000 #. Spec states 23 amp on 1000# dead lift so my load per winch is below 1,000#. I use 2 parallel auto batts. Ran it up/down a dozen times still had some battery left.

I have looked at these as well, specifically the one from ClarkField Outdoors (http://www.clarkfieldoutdoorsstore.com/store/p107/Winch_Cover.html) .

I think that w/ everyone switching over to stainless cable and zinc plated winches, the problem is becoming less and less.

Don't be fooled by stainless cables. Take proper care of them and change them every few years.Do your pivots every couple years too.

    • I have to admit, I only watched the fourth quarter and overall thought the team looked pretty good. But unless I missed it and he's hurt, can anyone explain how Okogie sat the bench the entire game? I know the knock on Thibs his entire career is that he's hard on rookies and doesn't play them much, but considering the Butler situation, is he that myopic on getting a W the first game of an 82 game season that he doesn't understand he needs to start developing players that will still be here after Butler's gone?  Even if Butler never leaves, he has to start developing some depth.  You can't tell me Okogie couldn't have been useful as a defensive replacement for a few minutes.   Maybe I missed something and Okogie is hurt. But if not, Thibs lack of developing our bench is as egregious as his handling of the Butler situation so far.
    • Aha, spent a lot of that fryer though! 😆     Fryin' Saucer Outdoor Portable Propane Deep Fryer, Camping Grill & More FS-1307   Fryin' Saucer $149.95 List $199.99
    • FL20,18,8 shot thru a Strikemaster hole in a Clam Trap after I get to the lake in an old Toyota because they're more reliable than Ford, Chev, and of course Dodge. Then I chop the fish up with any random new but 20 year old $5 electric knife from goodwill, then dunk them in the best shore lunch machine, the Fryin Saucer. Final cleanup is done by Sam's club house brand wipe(soft yet minimum Charmin balls) placed in the proper over the roll configuration. If you didn't have at least 4 fish fry's per month last winter, don't bother arguing!   That Helix looks pretty cool, but with 3 Vex's  I'm set for quite a while.        
    • Not to pick a fight with the fisherperson above.  But, I think Euro Larva work better then Wax Worms! 😕    ☺️
    • I'll just use Binoculars and follow you around.  There now Rick will come by and delete your funny little post too!  🤨
    • Now that the weathers had a chance to dry  I’ve headed out when I can after work and I have seen birds.  I can’t say if this is a peak in the cycle or not but it does seem better than last season.   Has anybody else been seeing a lot of Woodcock this year? I don’t shoot them because I don’t care for the taste but I have been seeing a lot of them
    • Apparently it's so obvious that Nils is the premier auger on the market that nobody even bothers to argue otherwise anymore! 😁
    • That's smart IMO.  I donated a soon to expire can of bear spray to a guy who was hunting that range about 5 years ago and he sprayed it in a bear's face from 8' away!   He swears to this day that I saved his life because he wasn't going to bother bringing bear spray.
    • Tomorrow is my day to shut everything down, turn water off and say good by tell  next May, boy that hurts!
