Electric winch

Look for a winch to bolt onto my trailer to pull up my 5.5m RIB during beach recovery. Power will come from the towing tractor which will be running, so no shortage of juice ... recovery needs to be brisk, so something with a bit of speed (or variable) would be good

Any ideas folks ?

Hi Murray how are you?
Listen Jeff put Pikey Dave and me onto this last year Lawson DainsonTW 9000. He's had one for years if you search you'll find the thread but better still pm Jeff he was very helpful to us.
Cheers
Billy

I saw Lawson Dainson in rep in 1953, top actor. No-one has bettered his Scarlet O'Hara.

I have used a Goodwinch for 6 years with no probs recovering a 5.3m. Might not be quick enough though.Think it was 300 with Dyneema rope.

Maybe! Can`t remember. Good idea to try and keep the manual winch mounted somewhere so you can recover if you don`t have power for any reason.
