    Finished my version a couple days ago, used a atv winch, 15v power supply and lovejoy coupler. Little slower than what I want but it's better than busting knuckles.

    Nicely done! Looks good too! :)

    You say it's a little slower than you want. It is a single speed only?

    Single speed, could throw some move volts to it but don't want to cook it. In reality it could probably handle much more, winches should be robust. Thought about removing the gear reduction but then it might be too fast. Thanks!

    I really like how compact this is. Having the switch on the "junction box" is a nice way to keep it all in one place.

    Thank you Denzil, that was my goal to keep it compact. I wanted a smaller Drive unit but this was the most economical. Have about $70 in it.
