I want a winch that I can mount on the ceiling in my poolhouse that
will lift the hardshell cover off of it...this is a POOL (Over 20 ft long)
not a HOT TUB..I now they sell all sorts of gadgets to lift off hardshell
covers for a spa or hot tub. This hardshell cover is in 3 pieces weighing
about 25-30 lbs each so I don't need an ATV winch (2000 lbs)...I only need
something with lifting capacity of about 100-150 lbs. I plan on putting the
winch on an aluminum track so these covers can be lifted seperately and slid
away . I've googled this to death..I am a welder by trade and have the
machining background to make the track rollers for the winch to slide up and
down the track....... but need to find a "light duty" winch 12 volt DC or
110 Volt AC dosn't matter as I am GFI'd up to the whoopie through poolhouse
regulations...A Mini winch that would crawl on an I beam would be the
ultimate!! I know I'm dreaming but am looking for this type of thing !
...Thanks for any constructive replies... Jim

and competed in other schools. I just followed the Natatorium signs to
find the pools.
Would a 12 volt electric winch like this help?
Indeed. All of the 12VDC and 120VAC motor driven winches I've ever
seen where much more heavy-duty than the OP is looking for. For
something as light as that I would just use a light-duty block and
tackle such as
