Re: hydraulic winches VS electric ones
Yep, the milemarker's are slow as a snail when in low, but they pull like hell, are reliable and don't overheat. If I were doing rocks I would definitely go with an electric, but for the stucks I usually get into, big mud holes, it's great. Another bad part is that it defaults to the steering, so if you turn the wheel while winching, it stops winching until you quit turning the wheel.
