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.

    • the contractor put a piece of trim that drops down into the gutter. So that style will not work. I had them on before I did the metal roof and they worked well.

    • I ordered a Somerset  grape vine last spring. Mainly because it is the only seedless grape that is supposed to be hardy enough to grow here. I took it off the wire and laid it down and covered it up with dirt to keep it from winter killing. It came through fine. Just put it back on the trellis yesterday.
