Questions & Answers

  • Q:

    Do you use authentic Dyneema rope? Also you have a drum brake. This will create heat. Heat is the enemy of rope. How do you get around this? Is there a movable abrasion sleeve on the rope? Is there a thimble? What material is the casing of the winch made of? Do you recommend keeping the winch covered when not in use? I had a competitors winch and in 2.5 years the housing cracked. Water and dirt got in and ruined the solenoid and motor. It was not kept covered when not in use.
