For General Recovery Work

Nothing beats this heavy duty electric winch, designed for true commercial applications. Its rugged construction combined with low profile design enables it to be fitted almost flush with, or above the vehicle floor, as required. The 90mm drum diameter ensures good rope life expectancy, and the drum length, combined with its deep flanges provides excellent rope storage capacity of up to 32m x 10mm diameter.
