The winch is designed for use with fiber rope up to 12 mm (1/2″) in diameter, reducing weight and allowing alignment to the load. The unique drum design maximizes grip on the rope, while the drum’s smooth surfaces reduce rope wear.

The mounting plate is sculpted to remove excess weight and provides multiple attachment points without compromising strength. The pigtail line lead ensures correct alignment and loading of the winch for maximum efficiency.

Winches feature 17-4 PH stainless steel load-carrying gears and pins for strength and durability.

Take care not to bend the base plate when cinching tight on a tree.
