Winch Buddy.

Is the Winch Buddy , with the right angle drive still available.
I found a site saying they cost $350 for a reconditioned unit and around $800 for a new model but have not been able to find a supplier of either. Preferably around Oregon or perhaps BVI, Martinique.


If you must tell me your opinions, tell me what you believe in. I have plenty of doubts of my own.

Re: Winch Buddy.

You can buy the Milwaukee drill and the Winch bit separately on the WWW. GOOGLE it.

Works a charm and you have a awesome drill to boot. That winchrite is stupid.

Re: Winch Buddy.

Then there is the cranker which I have and like
http://www.thecranker.com/
Liked the drill part of it so much I bought the vacuum, which uses the drill battery

One thing about using a drill, is if you need it, you have an enormously powerful drill available.

Re: Winch Buddy.

I posted the link to the wrong vacuum, there are two, one 18V and one 28V
Here is the link to the 28V

Comes without a battery, you just use the one for the drill, that way of course you can vacuum the boat and not have AC power.
