So Iím building a new house and will be mounting a winch in the ceiling of the shop for skinning.

Who makes an American made winch that I can mount in the rafters?

Will need it to plug into a standard electric plug and have a remote for operation of the winch.

Any ideas folks?

See what Warren offers will be tough to find a smaller on made in the US.


Was born in a Big City Will die in the Country OK with that!

Thanks! Everything Iíve found is industrial or commercial size and I just donít need that much. Iím not setting up an auto repair shop... although! That isnít a half bad idea to be able to do.

You need to be looking for a hoist, not a winch.

Correct! That is what I have learned in the last few minutes of searching.

Made in America. Costs 12X as much as the one from Harbor Freight.

You are fine ADC, I was hoping for American made, no real worries if it isnít, just a preference.

Get at least a 1000# rating. You WILL be using it to lift stuff into the back of your pickup also. Like a generator. They're handy.


I know I'm paranoid......but am I paranoid ENOUGH???
