I agree with steeltrap
the lug all type are one of the better cable come alongs
the body is forged , there are 2 steel ratchet wheels
and they're just about the same price as some bumper winchs.
I've broken so many cheap cable type come alongs that I won't even mess with one anymore.
in fact more and more contractors won't even bother supplying them because they just aren't that durable.some go as far as calling them a safety hazard.
a chain design is superior in every way but cost
I used these on my ride in the mine. Never had one fail. We removed the factory handle and fabricated a new one with a iron rod welded to a small piece of flat steel. The handle attaches with a wing nut.
I carry a bigger one than this in my truck, but it was a gift and is a little overkill for a come a long. I believe Iíd stretch and break a 5/16 chain before it would fail.
Did you consider a Hi-Lift Jack( the big red jacks you see bolted to the Mall crawler jeeps ) 7000 pulling and lifting power. I use mine more around the house and garage than to lift or move vehicle . Tractor supply usually has them for under 100 dollars . Just another option to consider.
I saw the one model Lug All could hoist a 25,000lb or heavier commercial tug boat!! I'm mainly looking something to use it to pull my truck out of a stuck in snow or mud situation not hoist it up in the air. Guess ive been lucky or blessed lol as Saturday was the first time in 52 years.
