Mostly use it for tree work- dragging logs, pulling old stumps, and tensioning trees to prevent saw pinching when working alone. On occassion I need to winch my old Jeep and larger military trailer full of wood up extreme slopes. I'm using the 24 volt version. Welding cables made into battery cables may help the thing perform well, and it never heats up. I've needed help from customer service and they are responsive. I don't have knowledge to compare it to other electric winches, but when compared to a PTO winch on a similar Jeep, I find this safe and more user friendly. I'm a happy owner.
Received the Box Air compressor within a week of order from the land down under to Texas, which is pretty good. The shipment was all together with just a little rubbing on the face of the pressure gauge (not in the screen area). Unpacked the box and repacked and everything fit with no resistance on the lid when closing. Power right up and was able to start filling a tire within a few minutes. Filled 5-10 PSI up to 39 PSI in under a minute as a test run. Did two tires and there was only a little heat build-up on the two compressors. The fill line will leak a little at the connection point to the Schrader valve as you move the hose around, but nothing to cause a problem. The gauge assembly worked well to deflate the tires and held pressure at the target pressure. Fits in the back of a Bronco with the other gear. All-in-all it looks like a fair product for the price.
When ordered this was out of stock but the communication from Sherpa was excellent and received the goods about a week later. The compressor has all the bits and is ready to use. Inflation of the tyres is fast. I'd recommend spending the extra, steer clear of the Harbor freigth junk.
This winch has serious power. We are using the Sherpa tow truck winches for moving shipping containers. Pretty sizeable and high weight being dragged along. The motor barely gets warm. They are top dollar but the best quality you can get for this type of work.
I'd recommend getting this with any dyneema rope winches. You can't use a normal snatch block thats used on cable winches. Always good to have the option of a double line pull for when you're really stuck.
