Ramsey RPH8000 Fault


Recommended Posts

Hi all, we've got problems with three of our Ramsey winches, all RPH 8000's, and none more than 4 years old.

They pull fine, trip when they should, brake as they should, but a really annoying problem is that they rattle and groan when winching out with no load. With weight on them they're fine both in and out, and there's no noise winching in without load. Just winching out with no load on them, they sound horiffic!

I'm just wondering if anyone's come across this problem before, as I'm gonna strip one soon to see what the crack is.

I'm guessing it's the sprag/one way bearing slipping, but I won't know for sure until it's stripped.
