Default Electric Winch Required For Caravan or Info Please

Hi,

Could any of the subscribers offer any recommendations on "electrical
operated winches"
I am after a low voltage winch that is capable of pulling my 4 berth
caravan up a driveway that has a slight incline.

Or does anyone in the North West have such a suitable electric winch
they wish to sell.

The full laden weight of the van is 30 cwt max

Many Thanks.

Rick.

They are ok if you intend pulling from the tow hitch end...if you try to do
it from the back, it would need to be attached onto the axle....but, this
also causes you a problem whereby if the winch is on a higher platform than
the lowest point on the axle...the rope or chain you use will foul the
underside of the van and could damage parts of the van....towing uphill
using the legs is a definate no no....maybe you could rig up a device which
would attach to the axle and protrude to the rear....like a large
triangle....wherby the rope/chain could be attached to the "Point" of
triangle...if you see what i mean :/
im rabbiting on here and you prolly just pull it up from front anyway....tho
this to can cause other probs if the winch is to high....then the front
lifts and the rear scrapes the bottom...why not just get a motor mover
fitted....if i could afford one i most certainly would have one, i too have
a driveway on a incline.....but i just reverse carefully and stop when i
smell the clutch burning

I have a mover nowadays but in the past I have used a hand ratchet winch to
pull the van up an inclined driveway of about 40ft overall. Although a
slowish process it was quicker and a lot easier than you might think and
very easy to manage the direction and siting of the van with the help of a
chock or two. The winch was one of those widely available in DIY /
Automotive shops for about 10. Too lazy now - just play with the remote.
