Well I purchased a WARN PullzAll again…. this time it worked. I used it to pull a 1000# pallet off a tilt trailer. (Which is actually hard to move. 🙂 ) Also I used it to pull this janky canopy to the zee purlins today. I was planning on using rope but the canopy is so big and annoying. My wife did not want it under our deck and I did not want it in my equipment room. See who won? 🙂
Well the wench is pretty helpful. Here is my official review points…. and stuff I do not like.
-Every time I use the warn I really just feel lazy…. it is soooo sloooow. A come-along would be faster and I do not care about the extra work (I am not that lazy yet 🙂 ).
-The warn will stop at its limit…. which is good. But it is a low reserve it seems…. even with the canopy…. when it got stuck on crap in the room it could not break free. A come-along would not have the same issues.
-The warn wench rope seems super short…. Not sure how long I would want but just longer.
-Maybe if the warn wheel for the wench rope was larger?
-Worse thing is…. you have to unwind the rope. There is no release switch. Does not sound annoying…. but it is.
-The power cord…. pretty much sucks…. but I will not use this regularly so the battery would never work. Plus the battery they are selling is not Lithium…. it is NiMH…. WHY? I would not pay my money for a NiMH battery when it should be a Lithium.
-Also a wired handheld remote would have been nice.
-This warn 120v wench is not going to be used on a car…. well because it uses 120v. What is up with the hooks then? Shouldn’t it have some sort of straps or something instead of the hooks? I know they want to sell this! PullzAll Rigging Kit LOL! 🙂 This is exactly what should be included or incorporated into the design. The system is pretty annoying to use…. knowing it is not a car wrench. This adds another $64 to the item.
When I pulled a 1000-1500# piece of equipment on to a rented uhaul…. I used a come along wench (similar to the link) and it was much faster to setup and readjust during the job. Also the max was 4x which was nice. The come along seems or is faster…. The only thing I believe the warn has which is really great is the reverse function…. also the more precise pulling. But the pulling seems to not stop right away…. so it might not be a total positive? LOL 🙂
So my Warn PullzAll review conclusion is: (My conclusion is based on pulling or lifting only.) If you are a total lazy ass…. Hands down best item ever! If you like to get crap done and you are not going to use it all the time…. you will wonder why you purchased this thing? It seems to work in slow motion and it is setup for not doing your job. You can read the warn review here…. almost every job they state this device is for…. needs some sort of rigging.
I do not have the need to lower things with a wench…. but if I needed a portable lowering device this would be AWESOME! I usually just let crap fall! LOL 🙂 The only time I didn’t I was using a forklift.
