About 12 Volt Winch

The last time you tried to pull a tree stump, you ended up in the hospital learning all sorts of new things about hernia surgery. You still work the land, but you learned that you can save time and copays by purchasing a 12-volt winch to pull stumps and move hardscape materials. Most of these winches are mounted to heavy-duty vehicles, which means you are limited to using them where your truck fits. If you are not sure how often you will use it, you may want to consider a 12-volt portable winch that can be mounted in a variety of locations. Most portables are rated for 2000 to 2500 pounds, but 6000 pound models are available and can be attached to any vehicle without the need for permanent mounting. For DIYers on a budget, a used 12-volt winch provides savings. Businesses often sell off used equipment that is still in good working order, and this is a great opportunity to get a good deal on a 12-volt winch that can withstand heavy use. There is a large inventory of these winches on eBay to get you moving major obstacles easily and safely.
