Can the Pro Series PSKR15000301 Be Mounted for Left-Hand Cranking


I would like to mount the PSKR15000301 winch for left-hand cranking. Is this okay? I know the cable would wind on in the opposite direction while maintaining the correct up and down cranking directions. I just need to know if this might present any problems with the safe operation of the winch. Thank you for your assistance.

Though I do have a left-hand cranking winch available, I spoke with Pro Series and they said the Standard Brake Winch # PSKR15000301, having an automatic braking system, is not recommend to be wound in the opposite direction.

With that said, the Fulton F2 Fully Enclosed Trailer Winch with Strap and Adjustable Handle # FW16000101 will actually be rated a little higher at 1,600 pounds, but the handle can be moved to the other side. This will be a much better option.
