Unlike electric winches that drain your battery rendering the winch useless, our portable winch is powered by a gas-driven chainsaw.
The Lewis Winch is made of a rugged cast-aluminum alloy housing making it extremely strong and lightweight. The Lewis Winch uses oil-bathed steel gears, which ensure years of trouble-free service in the most hostile environments.
With a variable line speed of 60 to 80 ft/min. The 3/16"cable supplied with your Lewis Winch is 150 feet long which is the maximum amount of 3/16" cable the drum will hold.
If you don't normally need to pull 150 ft. In one pull, you will want to consider cutting the cable shorter so that it is easier to handle while you work. A shorter cable is also easier to evenly wind back on the spool of the winch without jamming. Simply re-position the Lewis Winch if you need to continue the pull.
