Gwinnibarge Posted August 4, 2008 Share Posted August 4, 2008 The band brake on my gearmatic 9a winch is apparently frozen so i cannont spool out any cable. I tried attaching to a tree and letting the tractor do some pulling, but that didn't work (I didn't really think it would). I may have to break down the winch to free up the brake, but before I do that, I was wondering if there are other ideas that I could try. You collective insight is much appreciated. By the way, the winch does reel in, but I am about as reeled in as I dare go (there's a few feet left of cable before the cable starts sucking in the cable collars. Thanks again, all. Regards.
