electric winch, any experience?

getting a bit old for heaving my 785 ribeye onto a rollercoaster trailer so thinking of getting an electric winch. I've seen this one: 9900lbs Electric Recovery Cable Winch ATV Boat Trailer Car Marine 12V R/Control | eBay
or this
https://www.machinemart.co.uk/p/warr...-steel-rope-w/

do you think this will be any good? I'm trying to find out if it has the right hole spacing for the winch post or is there anything else not too expensive that would be better? Boat's about 1.5t. Cheers.

I've just done similar, not used it yet though.

Don't bother with the eBay specials, the warrior is decent though.

You won't fit the correct bolt spacing from my research unless you buy a marine specific trailer winch.

I wanted to keep the original handle for emergency.

4500kg or 4500lb? Did it have the right mounting holes? Thanks again
