A small, compact, low-cost winch, suitable for applications such as farming, quad biking, hunting and UTV, is now available in South Africa.

“The Superwinch A3500 is a compact, quiet, all-purpose 3500lb (1590kg) winch also ideal for 4×4 enthusiasts or any application needing a smaller, durable tool with brand-name reliability and added functionality. It is constructed with a low-amp, permanent magnet motor and designed for intermittent-duty general use,” explained Lenard Chester, MD of BD Components, distributors of Superwinch.

The winch’s free spool clutch is operated by a pull-and-turn action, which is able to disengage the gearbox. The winch’s steel cable can be pulled out by hand using a hand-saver bar. Synthetic cable is available as an optional extra.
