    Default Light duty winch

    Where can I find an electric winch that will handle about 200-300kg. I want to fit a winch to the Troopie's tent.

    Adendorfs would be a good place to try..

    I did phone them, but they start on a 2500lbs winch. R1,000.

    But I need 1/4 of that. The price is not the issue. It is the physical size of the winch.

    Why not use a hand winch, Henri? I'm thinking of the little lightweight jobs you find on some dinghy trailers, for instance.

    I have 2 of those, but the space is limited. I also want to be outside when it closes, so I can tuck in any canvas that needs to be tucked in.

    I have come across hoists that are 250kg. Now to find that with a 12V motor.

    Ths looks like the right thing, but I don't know of suppliers in ZA and I also don't know the physical dimentions.

    Henri,

    how about googling "electric hoist" rather than winch. Disabled people are raised out of bed or a bath in hospitals etc using a hoist, which is just a lightweight winch on a track. Maybe contacting suppliers of hospital equipment might be one way forward.

    Those hoists are all 220VAC. If I really have to, I could run it via an inverter. But that would be last resort.

    Nee Christo. Way way to big. 250kg is what I need.

    There will be 12V versions of those hoists, Henri, for getting people into and out of cars and vans. I guess you could ask Oppers.

    Here's the sort of thing......

    Now you are onto something. That looks like a wiper motor, with a reel.

    I've just rung them Henri, and whilst they don't have an SA agent they can ship these things. There are 2 models........the light duty one is the one in the PDF, and it costs £475 +VAT. That strikes me as very expensive. I am sure you'll be able to find an SA supplier of disabled equipment who can get you something cheaper than that.

    I made a hoist that I use to lower myself into rivers etc if I want to go for a swim (sometime it's just not possible any other way) or to get back into my chair once I've crawled around under the Jeep...

    As Engel suggested, this is a small winch as used on the ATV's (quad bikes) that I won at a 4x4 function. I don't think I'd have bought it at it's regular price. Iirc, it's rated for 250kg, but with the cable doubled for 500kg.

    First thing though, they state clearly on the winch that it should NOT be used for lifting people or animals..... pffft!

    Hope this helps.
