The casting that constitutes the right angle gear housing is plainly marked 2:1 & 1:2 Instructions are in the manual. If you exchange the input for the output the ratio is reversed.

I wish someone would make a three to one reduction for the thing, then it would be perfect.

My opinion is that the Winchright is too short. Its like an 8 inch winch handle. If you really need torque it would put a lot of force on your hands. The Milwaukee is much longer making it a better lever. I think the Milwaukee exerts greater torque than the Winchright but I don't know the specs. Winchright seems to be about twice the price. I examined the Winchright at the Chicago boat show a few years ago. It felt puny. I like my Milwaukee.

I went to the Winchright site to check on the battery issue. Appears there is no interchangeable battery and in fact no battery listed.
