Deerlope,

Do you have any pics of your MM winch set-up?

thanx
There is some on this site under "build it yourself" but don't ask me how to find them. Searching I would guess. Its been probably 3 years since I put them in here . The site went up and down soooooooo many times and then there was no automatic pic resizer so I just stopped posting things that I build.

The only disadvantage compared to an electric winch is that the engine has to be running to use it.

That is true, but if your engine is not running your not going to use an electric winch very long either. Under a substantial load you won't be able to make a full pull unless you have an up graded electrical system with extra high capacity batteries.

Agreed. Thus the hydraulic has the advantage.

I had in mind situations such as getting stuck in a creek and drowning the engine. The electric winch may get you out. This is perhaps an unlikely scenario in a working environment, but something to consider if you enjoy off-road exploration, which was why I originally bought the MileMarker. I decided if I drowned the engine I probably would not be able to get it started again, and so bought the MileMarker.
