Finally broke my t-max
After 3 years and HUNDREDS of pulls of my jeep, scrap vehicles in all sorts of disrepair and several combines, grain trucks One with no tires, and dozens of other things I cannot remember, while pulling and entire car sidways 15 foot to line it up where I could get it out BOOM something broke. Now you may be saying why am I happy about this,, truth is I am not, but I bought that winch with the thought if it gets me out of one bad stuck I will be happy. So lets just say I am happy..
The part that broke appears to be the clutch for the free spool. It had been sticking a little lately but gave no other indication that it was going to blow.
I have a 10,000 lb champion sitting in a box for just such an occasion. I have to say I will continue to recomend T-Max as a quality Item I may even buy one for a spare insted of the cheapos I have been getting.
Ya only go around once, best to enjoy it the first trip.
