I picked up a winch that I'll be using to pull dirt out of my
basement. So now I need to power it.
It is a one horse motor- 2000lb capacity.
(Amazon.com product link shortened)
I'll be using it to pull a [roughly] 300pound load up a wheeled
incline for 20 feet--- then it will rest for 30 minutes or so-- then
repeat. Probably not more than 3 times. . . then do it again
So I won't be working the thing real hard. What are some thoughts
on how to power it.
I've thought of a marine battery- and trickle charge overnight. I
have the charger. Would have to buy the battery.
I've thought of a transformer. Have no idea what size or what they
I've got an old riding mower with a bad transmission. Seems like
overkill, but it has a good 8hp motor on it, and charges the little
battery - so I think I could just run it off that battery when the
motor is running.
Or I could pull the Impala around to the side of the house and tap
into that 12v system.
What sounds like a feasible plan?
