Default Adding a winch,

So after recovering 2 dead vehicals of the freeway for friends tus, i realized i fuckin blows to push a dead car on a trailer.
So after reading this http://www.greatlakes4x4.com/showthread.php?t=29649
Im lookin at purchasing one of these cheapos. just ot pull up dead cars and rigs.
But id like somethin with a little more ASS to it whn im using a cheapo winch..
Thought about ATV winch's 3500 was he only ones i could find in my pice range on Ebay ($100 or less)
Then i found this little mad dog.

Any thoughts. yes i know its cheap. But do you think it will actualy pull 6k ?
Now power supply, lookin at Mounting a Battery box on the trailer with a heavy duty battery in it.. But what about charging.. Run the break away box 12v lead to it for charging with a Breaker so i dont burn up the wire from truck ?? or just hook it up and not worry about burning it up wont ever drain down far enough ? OR Do i just do a stan alone battery with some sort of gauge and pull it to charge it every time i use ( that last one sounds like a PITA to me.
