    Default Portable winch.

    Hi All,

    Iím looking for a portable winch, something similar to the photo attached. Is such a tool available in South Africa? If so and if anyone has experience, please can I hear about experiences, pros and cons of using one for vehicle recovery, and where to get one.

    Thanks

    That looks like an electrical one? Have you looked at something like these hand/mechanical winches?

    Tirfor make excellent portable hand winches - Haggie Rand used to be the agents, but I think they've now been taken over by Scaw.

    Edit: Sorry, I see that Danie posted the Tirfor list up above.
