This thing is looking pretty handy and not a bad price:

I'm on the fence on this one. If it wasnt a quality product, Warn probably wouldnt put their name on. I think the cordless drill would be the weak link. A $30 walmart drill probably wont hold up. What if your drill peeters out half way through and you cant get whatever you are lifting down?

You will need to to prepared by having several batteries charged and ready to go.Warn also makes a 24 volt winch but a lot more pricey.

 

You can use this if your battery runs down:

I installed a Warn 2000 on a log arch, operates off tractor battery.

Combined with a double fall it handles large logs w/o straining or heating up.

It's surprising a cordless drill would have the torque without burning up, IMO.

I will save my money and keep using the $30 manual boat winch. I have pulled a lot of GTs in the truck with it and it comes in handy out on the trail when getting stuck and you dont have to worry about the battery going dead. If it does, it is self rechargeable.... just add beer

Nothing specific but something I could use throughout the year.

 

Reviews indicate that a mediocre drill will run it due to the gearing.

But like you,I am limited with my trailer mounted winches on where it can be used but this winch is very portable and can be used just about anywhere.

It could be handy to have around for the lighter things. As small as it is, I would most likely overload it and break something.

It has some sort of overload built into it.

I have a boat type winch that I have been trying to figure out what to do with it. It has a 2" wide strap instead of cable. I have the upright and all.

I have seen people use them to hoist items to the ceiling for storage.
