Re: Winch

Thanks to everybody who replied.

I should have been more specific, I'm erecting a fixed mast, then
removing the old one.

What I have done is bought a winch from Machine Mart and 8mm steel rope
from the local agricultural merchants.

Now for some hard work.

Dear All,

Can anybody suggest a supplier for a hand winch, or has
somebody got one
to sell?

I have realised that to raise my new mast safely the rope and

have are not good enough.

Hence the need for a winch.

Each mast section weighs about 180kg, hence the wire rope
needs to be
rated at least to 500kg, and 50m long, the total height of the
mast is

Any help or advice appreciated.
