Default Just bought a Ramsey REP8000...anyone have one?

I just picked upa Ramsey REP8000 from a co-worker for $100. It doesnt have a hook on the end because the cable broke at the hook. The rest of the cable looks really good though. It has the controls and everything including a roller fairlead. Does anyone have this winch? How has it worked out for you?

I got one about 5 years ago for free that didnt work. I just had to clean the terminals, then the motor went on me last year but it only cost 100 to get it rebuilt. all in all you gat a deal and Id just recommmend putting the money you saved on it toward some synthetic line. It may not be the best winch out there but its usually gotten the job done for me.
