Review of Pro Series Winches PSKR15000301

Today we'll be reviewing part number PSKR15000301. This is the Pro Series standard brake winch, rated at 1,500 pounds. It is designed for use with a cable only. The brake winch is perfect for boat lifts, grain augers, manual fork lifts, hoists, and much more. The load worm is securely held in place whenever your handle is released. That's one of the great things about having a brake winch. The brake mechanism is inside this protective casing, so it's going to protect it from dirt, oil and grease and the elements, which is going to help extend the life of the brake mechanism. No free-wheeling option is available with this winch.

It does have the oversized drum to help maximize the life of your cable. That drum is going to give us a diameter of 1 3/4". There's a nice zinc-plated finish that surrounds the winch, which is really going to help it stand up well against rust and corrosion. In here, on our gears, we do have the lubricant on there, so everything is lubricated and ready to go. On this side, we do have the cable catch kit. You can thread your cable out through one of these holes, tighten it up around that catch system, and that's going to hold one end of your cable very securely as you're tightening the rest of your line. It also comes with the handle and Allen key, so you can tighten or loosen up the handle if you need to remove it.

That handle is going to give us an overall measurement of about 9" in length. Our drum hub can accommodate a cable up to 50' in length by 7/32" in thickness. The way this works is, as you tighten your handle, you're going to hear that clicking noise, which is going to let you know that everything is engaged as it should be. If you need to loosen up or bring out your line, you can simple just rotate the handle in the other direction. Here on the underside, we do have pre-drilled mount holes for an easy bolt-on installation. Our mounting plate is going to measure 5 1/2" by 4".

The elongated hole is going to measure 1 1/2" by 3/8". These two holes are identical and they are going to give us a diameter of 3/8", and then these two holes are the same, and they're going to measure 3/8" by 5/8". Couple of other measurements to go over real quick. The overall width, including the end of the handle, is going to measure right around 12". It's going to measure about 6" tall and about 7" deep. This does require a minimum load of 50 pounds for everything to work properly. That's going to complete today's review of part number PSKR15000301.

This is the Pro Series standard brake winch, rated at 1,500 pounds. .
