    Re: Canadian Tire winch?

    Winch is cheaper than u can buy it at the supplier.. I have a few of them and yest they are slower but just about bullet proof. As for the stuck free spool the bearing under the know sizes up. Iv had it happen to both of my winches. I took the bearing out and tossed it in vinegar for a few days, then soaked in in oil overnight. Been working good for a few years. They did send me a new end cap and bearing but iv never used it. When it happens again im just going to order a better sealed ceramic bearing

    Mine won't allow me to flip to Free spool right now. Might have to claim warranty

    Great thing with Costco is if it craps out you can return it. 170 bucks great deal.

    Re: Canadian Tire winch?

    After i cleaned the first one i filled with marine grade grease.. Been goin over 2 years and gets submerged on a regular basis with no issue. I also put grease inbehind handle to keep water from penetrating bearing again

    will see if i can find a tube of marine grease.

    i also took the end off he winch and greased inside, worked till i had the rope wind too much on one side. poped the through bolt and did case damage. mine was a 4500lb, good winch.

    Re: Canadian Tire winch?

    Ya good winch I have put mine through hell with some extremely long hard pulls. ( had to spin the atv around in 3 feet of snow and winch it 200 feet back up the hill) just about 3 hours of solid winching with a few breaks to let battery catch up. I like the positive lock for freewheel compared to warn where if you sneeze you turn it to far and have to fix It.

    Re: Canadian Tire winch?

    yup i have pulled hard enough that all you hear is creaking and nothing moves. lol. has been a good winch, wouldn't want to get my hand caught in it though.


    had the contacter so hot , we stopped and fried a bacon sandwich on it. i try to winch for 30 seconds and then wait for a minute to continue, otherwise a bottle of water over contacter keeps it going.
