I went to a consignment auction this weekend and picked up a few things including a 12v electric worm gear drive winch. I seen the winch at last minute before the auctioneer had gotten to it. The box that the winch was in was for a warn 12,000 lb. winch. I seen the winch laying in the box and thought it was the warn winch, everything looked to be there and the auctioneer started the bid on it. The bid went all the way down to 5 bucks so I bid on it. It made its way up to 50 bucks before the other guy stopped bidding. So I got this thing for 50 bucks everything seems to work on it, I just don't really know what it is except that it was manufactured by Braden winches, which seems to be like a serious duty winch. There are a few stamped numbers in the case, here they are:
EC41 (this one is stamped on the gearcase)
7925929 (this one is stamped on the gearcase)
51998 (this one is stamped on the front of the gearcase cover)
There is a tag riveted to the gearcase but I can't read anything on it. Can anyone help me identify this winch?
