Thanks, The electrical winch heats up under load, and recomended is that you should use it for a couple of minutes under load & provide cooling period so that the motor does not burn out. Mechanical VS Hydraulic is the key question. They both needs the engine to be started. My thoughts about hydraulic is that it has immense power, look at bull dozers, they have some amazing power being hydraulically operated. So i am inclined towards it. I am working on it and hopefully will find something.
I did check olx, bolee, pw but could only find parts of a mechanical winch, no hydraulics yet!!!. as i get back on my feet, i am gonna do some recky here locally aswell.
