    Ended up getting this when I picked up another np 205.

    I think I'll use it in the shop and for a trailer/spare. I might
    make a plate for it to bolt to so I can put it in a reciever hitch.

    Let me know what ya think :D

    That would be pretty sweet on the front of a trailer. Nice score :D

    I think it could be used with a pto, the other end of the shaft that goes through the worm gear is long enough and has a hole drilled in it for a pin to go through.

    good score!

    You could use that style of winch on a hoist or crane also--its a "worm gear" style,that is self locking--if you lift a heavy load and let go of the handle,it wont spin wildly and let the load crash down,instead,it will hold the load wherever you stop cranking it--and you'll have to crank it in the opposite direction to lower the load...

    Same thing if you get a car halfway on the trailer,and have to stop to move something--you can just let go of the handle and the car stays put--no running to stick chock blocks under the tires...only bummer is it most likely won't "free spool",and you'll have to crank it 10,000 turns to get the cable out far enough to reach the car--then 10,000 more turns to yank it on the trailer.. :doah: --hope you have stong arms,because if you dont--you WILL! :haha: :haha: :crazy: maybe you can adapt a reversible motor to it..
