Garage winch


Recommended Posts

Always wanted one bolted to the back wall of the Garage so I can winch the Landrover (Or engine on a trolley) in and out of the garage.

One trip to Southend Aldi and £40 later.......i had 240v winch :)

Using 5mm steel plate on the back wall as a spreader plate, and the same thickness the other side sandwiched with 4 x M10 bolts, it works well!

Show off! ;)

Back in my day, well, about 8 years ago, I took an air brick out of the front of my house and put a strop through and around a big bulk of timber to spread the load just so I could hand winch my AEC Matador up my drive. Pulling 7 tons up a slope with a ratchet winch was a pain.

What sort of lifting capacity do you get for 40 quid RT? I am looking to do the same type of set up in the rafters of my car port to lift the roof tent/roof rack on & off the Disco.

How many feet of cable is on the drum?
