Following my purchase of a second hand TDS winch I spent some time researching the product and found a couple of people who said that they wished they had not bought a large drum/deep drum version!! It would appear a deep drum is a standatd drum with larger diameter discs on each end to help accommodate more or a greater diameter rope. This then requires the winch to mounted on spacers due to the greater diameter drum. It also then means that in the case of a greater length of rope you are perhaps adding another couple of layers of rope to the drum significantly reducing the winches efficiency. I'm new to winching myself and have not a huge amount of experience apart from what I've read during my own research on the matter. But thought I'd just mention in case it's relevantI'm wondering if the 9.5 large drum might be better? Looking at the specs, it has a slightly longer rope and is twice as fast. If I need more power I could double line.. Why is everyone going for the 12k?
Do we have a price for the 9.5 large drum?
I'd presume you could pay over the phone. Carriage is included for each winch so it would be straight to your door.Individual sounds good - presumably you can then use a credit card. What are the delivery arrangements? Is shipping to each buyer or to one central point?
