A few months ago I asked the same question...but I still have not arrived at a
solution to my problem....
I want to motorize a LM354E...currently it has a hand winch and it is a bear to
raise....there isn't a gear box on this tower...
A number of people responded with an electirc drill hooked up to a worm gear
winch solution...functional but not what I was looking for...
A few other recommended a 120V winch by Dayton....that that has a free spool
lever which would allow the tower to free spool down.... the safety concerns
got to me...I could see my TH11 come roaring down around me!
There are a number of 120 winches out there...primarily designed for pulling
applications...like the Warn Works
unit...this unit looks like it could do the job but I was wondering about its
durability hanging on a tower, exposed to the elements.
So heres the question again...has anyone used this winch...or something similar
to motorize a crank-up....
Any help would be appreciated!....
