Re: Self Tailing Winches

Yes used is an option, but winches certainly are NOT indestructible if they are not maintained. I wouldn't buy a used winch without taking it apart and inspecting it very closely. Pawl sockets get worn and sloppy, teeth get worn and damaged, bearings wear. People replace winches for a reason!
