It has taken a remarkable amount of time to discover that the electric
conversion kit for a Two-Speed (#40) EVO winch
IS NOT A TWO SPEED CONVERSION. That fact seems well hidden.
(true also for the factory "two Speed Electric". Its not really two speed and they disguise that ! !
The #40 kit has ONLY ONE SPEED. So they say it "gives you two-speed-manual and one-speed-electric".
QUESTION: Does that single
run in the high speed mode or the low speed (power) mode?
I am doing this conversion because I need more power to lift
a heavy mainsail
rig. I am afraid that if the electric runs only at high speed, it won't have enough power.
It appears that the Harken winch
has TRUE TWO-SPEED capability. Hence it has two switches - one slow, one high speed.
Should I ditch the lewmar
and buy a new Harken
winch so I actually get two speed electric ? ?
