I've always wanted a 12v winch but have never purchased one because they are kinda pricey. It is one of those things that it would be great to have on certain occaisions, but you don't necessarily have a pressing need for one standing there in the store looking at the price tag. I don't tend to get my truck stuck anymore like I did when I was younger, so I guess my more recent needs would have been to winch up some logs from hillsides...kinda a utility winch and not necessarily a truck winch. I've passed up some wood because I didn't want to carry the weight up hills, couldn't drive to the wood, but could have winched up logs or my wood cart. I do not want to mount it to my truck, except perhaps temporarily to my receiver hitch. I'm sure I could weld up a suitable way to do this. Any thoughts to decent value priced winches, accessories that might make this work (a snatch block?), etc? What is your setup?
