Cheers, do you run it off a separate battery on the trailer or connect it to the car via an Anderson connector e.g.

Cable direct from battery to an Anderson connector in boot. The winch comes with HD fuse links and about 6 metre of cable. It's the red mini Anderson connectors it uses (32a ????)

Cheers. Where did you get it from & is fitting Dyneema to the strap version an issue?

From the states ,,,,, Northern Tool but also available on Amazon. Bembridge Marine import them but want a fortune and even accounting for shipping and duty it's cheaper direct. Someone else on here is also potentially buying one, so if you get together, combined shipping is (was) not much more for 2 units.
No problem fitting the dyneema - it had the lug fitting on the end and this just bolts through the slotted hole in the side of the drum. I did 'expand' the drum shaft using old ratchet strap webbing to make recovery a bit faster. As you know , a webbing strap winds over itself so progressively increases the diameter and cm pull per revolution ,,, which with a rope you don't get the same effect. No doubt with your engineering skills you could improve on this bodge and fabricate a split collar to expand the spindle ,,, 2-2.5 " diameter was about right for me. Depends on the length and dia of your dyneema I guess.
If you go down this route I'll be round for one 😅👍
I've had this winch for 9 years with no issues ,,,, and the last question I was asked is, yes, it has a handle for manual operation if it all goes south .
Cheers ,,,,, oh ,, the shiny rid holders are ace thanks. Not really improved the catch .!!! . We did get some rather nice and plump mackies off Redcar at the weekend though 😊

Just one more thing, if you change the strap, make sure you wind it on in the same orientation as it has a friction brake for motorised winching out ,,,, I never use that , preferring gravity ,,, but it gets mighty hot winching in if it engages because you've wound on the wrong way ! 😉

Not at a sensible price ! Still cheaper from the states with duty and taxes I think. PD and Jumbo were looking into it recently I think

Perhaps a chance for a few buys to save some wedge then!
