Drilling conc is no big deal, a decent SDS on hammer will walk it.

My suggestion would be to hire an SDS hammer drill. I think mine is referred to as 3 joule 2kilo type.
I fully agree the difference is amazing. I spotted a Makita hidden away in B+Q reduced to £40 from £140 - I think a member os staff may have done it hoping for a bargain...........

The way drills move off line in concrete I'd make a plate up to take the winch mounting points then bolt this to the floor with some big clearance holes in the plate and washers for the concrete fixings

The winch itself comes with, and bolts to, a substantial steel mounting plate - that is fair peppered with additional holes of various sizes and positions - and this is the bit that bolts to the floor. Thanks for the tip...I think I'll open up the holes I want to use to accomodate misalignment
