    i just think its stupid... obe in the form of a pump is much more relaiabe... and what if you need the winch or oba serviced, you dont just loose one, you loose em both.:rolleyes:

    For the $250 extra that they charge for the air option you could buy a pretty nice standalone OBA solution.

    I think it would be hard to find one with the duty cycle and HP of a winch motor for 250.00

    And honestly, how many of you have had your winch serviced?

    But for some reason the minute they mention inflating rafts or water toys, I think cheap 3000PSI walmart tire inflators.

    I think it's a good idea.

    A belt driven oba setup off the motor is a much better option... money wise and reliablilty wise...

    I think its a good idea. Maybe not for all you guys, but a decent idea none the less.

    But it can't put out that much air volume....you know how long it would take to blow up a raft?
