    Do they do this on purpose to entertain us? Wench?

    OF course, I've been entertained since joining this site in 2006 with the misuse of the term wench!
    I even have a clarification on my build thread:

    "By the way, here is a wench (seems to be commonly confused with winch)."

    I'm not sure which is more entertaining, the spelling or the wooden box it's in. Wonder what the operating capacity of the box is?

    This winch looks ALLOT like a SEARS unit that I had when I first started off-roading. It was considered portable and had a 3,500 lb rating. It also featured a hand crank if you lost power. The trailer hitch adapter looks very familiar and that's what gave it away for me. Of course, the housing on this unit must have been damaged and they improvised with the plywood and angle iron.
    This one is similar...which also tell me this homemade rebuilt unit is WAY overpriced:

    Wench in a box sounds like an adult version of elf on a shelf.

    Might be cheaper in the long run to lease rather than buy!

    Front or rear mount?
    Doesn't say size balls needed?
    Does It go on top only or can you lay it on its side.
    can it be reversed
    What oil is needed for the box?



    Does it leak?

    Are you Firm?
