Very cool and really fast. This model came with a pre-wired DPTT (Double pole triple throw) switch that allows you to manually control the winch without a 3rd channel. Flip the switch one way and it rolls out, put the switch in the middle position and it stops, flip it the other way and it rolls in.
With 2 motors it's fast and strong.
When I first hooked it all up it didn't want to work.
Turns out I had to reverse one of the sets of wires from the motors. The two motors were turning against each other.
Once I flipped that around it was working great!
I guess they just tossed two pre-wired motors onto it and didn't think about the fact that one needs to go the other direction!
I wish these people would think about how you're supposed to bolt this thing on though. The 4 bolt slots (at least they are slots so you have some work around room) are all under the motors. First I removed the mounting plate from the winch and used it to mark and drill the holes to mount it (the stock Poison Spyder bumper is not setup for a winch). Then I re-attached the mounting plate to the winch (and used Loctite). Then I had to use a pair of Hemostats to hold the nuts in place while I worked the bolts up thru the bumper (they do supply all the necessary mounting hardware) . It was a bear and there was much cursing going on for sure but I finally got them all on (again, with Loctite).
