looking for an emergency hand winch? Do you think a manual winch is sort of "self reliant" and cool? I do.
here is a Tirfor type endless cable winch for $200
note that it's labled a 1.6 ton . it's actually 1600 kg or 1.6 metric tons, (tonne's) so its a 3500 lb rating.
Northern Industrial Wire Rope Pulling Hoist — 1.6-Ton Capacity | Hoists, Lifts + Cranes | Northern Tool + Equipment
note that this appears to be the same one ARB is selling for $376 ( 246 +25+105)... because you have to by the same 65' cable and EVEN the HANDLE all SEPARATELY!!!
for what it's worth it does have a CE sticker. It does appear to me to be the very same as ARB's, just looking very carefully at pictures. Perhaps ARB specs higher grade unit. But then you might expect more rating? Or is it just the $175 black paint upgrade? :P
the cool thing about an endless cable crawling winch is it will grab any (correct size and type, -and it is picky) cable so you can carry as much cable as you wish and just freely pull it through to the length you want to start pulling. it does not spool the cable it just shoots it out the other end, thus it does not coil or twist it up or otherwise abuse it as do types with a spool and the pull power does not change as it wraps up, because it doesn't.
anyway, I just though I would share my shopping experience.
here is a cutaway so you can see how they work
