Whether you're after an X-Bull, I-Max, Out Ranger, Giantz or another leading brand, there's bound to be a hand winch with your name on it when you search eBay. You can also check out more boat accessories or car and truck accessories while you're there.
Types of hand winches
Buying the right hand winch is all about matching the item specs with the job you have in mind. These tools are not all built to handle the same weight, so it's important to choose carefully. Do you need a maximum pulling capacity of 544kg, 680kg, 1136kg, 2000kg or even the massive 4000kg pulling power you can gain with some top of the range models? There's a manual hand winch ready to meet any of these requirements. For example, a 544kg 2-way hand winch by I-Max has a 50mm x 8m synthetic strap and dual modes for both forward and reverse cranking from one side. It weighs 3kg and has a gear ratio of 4:1. When you step up to I-Max's 1136kg 2-speed hand winch, you get a heavy duty tool weighing 5.7kg and utilising 3 gears. The overall dimensions of this model are 260mm x 120mm x 180mm. Still not strong enough? You may want to consider the X-Bull 2000kg hand winch with 3 gears and 6mm x 10m Dyneema rope for some serious pulling power.
Some features come standard in almost all hand winch models, such as carbon steel heat-treated shafts and gears, universal mounting holes, removable handle, weather-resistant coating, and a mooring hook equipped with a safety pawl.
