Winch remote

Post by miketree » Thu May 23, 2013 7:40 pm

I've just fitted one of these winch remotes. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/12V-Winch-Wir ... 4369311%26

Easy to do, an at just over a tenner, it's a bargain.

i agree with this. but if you'll buy a wireless remote winch control, it's better if you'll choose a good brand.

That looks very similar to my remote which always works fine although I always take my main hard wired lead too. It did occur to me that as they are radio controlled I wondered how many individual frequencies there are and what the range is, wouldn't want someone else' remote sending a signal at a critical time, :-(
