Ramsey/Chicago 8,000 lb winch with upgraded cable - $150 SOLD!
Chicago Electric 8,000 winch. This is the old style one made by Ramsey for Harbor Freight. I bought this new about 7 years ago and have used it on rigs and most recently my work trailer for dragging up non-running cars. It is slow but will pull a house down. I busted the stock cable a few years ago and replaced it with 150 foot one from Warn. Here is the bad. For whatever reason this winch works intermittantly in cold weather. It seems to only act up under 20 degrees. Its done this three times to me, and so I replaced it, as I need reliability for work. Above 20 degrees it has always worked for me. You can figure it out. $150 OBO
