Re: Winch ideas: Come-A-Long

I have the Griphoist Tirfor T516 and it is rated at 4,000Lbs Dead Lift. The Pull capacity is 5,500Lbs

It costs just a little over $1000.00 and it is the mid sized unit.

Re: Winch ideas: Come-A-Long

I have a Tirfor and swear by it for function and diversity of use. The product you’re looking at troubles me due to the design, it looks too short, and a lot of energy in cranking on it will be lost with the winch twisting as you apply force especially with the synthetic rope. Now with enough pulley...

Re: Miles Pinz Restoration Progress (pic heavy-milestone thr

The added bumper nose is welded between the mounting bolts so it is very solid, enough for me to stand on it with no problems, while leaving the ends of the bumper to be weak enough to bend without bending the other parts of the frame and body. Let the bumper do what it was designed to do, when you ...

It is a basic radio, 12v or 24v, intended for use in harsh enviroments,it is dust and water resistant with no CD or Tape to allow dirt to get inside the face plate. No installation instructions but the wiring...

Re: something new...not Pinzgauer, though

Don't see why this concept couldn't be adapted to a Pinz. This may have to be my next project in 5 years or so. :lol:

Re: Gas grade: Regular, Mid or Premium?

Re: 712 rear door problem

To remove the panel twist the handle from the inside while pulling the panel from the inside, assuming the outside handle and knob are removed.
