    well after 35 years of ownership , went to use it at brothers house to help take down a dead tree . two things in way house and power lines . winch would work in and out but wouldn't hold the load (brake) .didn't hear the normal clicking sound it would make when loaded , I guess that's what I get for not load testing it . every few months . so we just used jeep with long straps . went on line to research problem . ordered brake rebuild kit . rant over :censored::censored::censored::censored::censored:
