While at work today, one of the guys I work with pulled up with an older f-250 that he just bought for a work truck. Anyways, this truck had a 12,000 lb Ramsey on it with the fairlead and everything(minus the remote). It needs a new cable too but thats about it. This guy has no need for it and will probably let it go for next to nothing.It doesnt seem like it is of any value to him and it would never get used anyway since it's a work truck. Since I've never owned a winch before, is there any way I can test it without the remote? (sorry if dumb question) Also,(assuming it works) what advice would you guys me on how I can work this so I do get it for a steal?
