View Full Version : Brano shear pins- where to buy?

I've been using my Brano hand winch to pull out some tree stumps, today I've busted the shear pins. There were 3 spare pins in the handle recess, which I thought would be a lifetime supply, but it turns out the thing uses all 3 at once, so I'll need to have some more on hand for next time I get too willing with it.
A search of the interweb has failed to find anywhere that sells these winches or parts in Aus, wondering if anyone can point me to a supplier?
I got it from a clearing sale, originally sold by Duncans Off Road, who no longer seem to exist.

If you can't get them, do you know what material the originals were made from?

I'd be tempted to turn some replacements up, you could build-in a safety factor.

It could even be possible that Tirfor pins fit.

They're some kind of bronze, if I can't find some I'll make some but things like this are generally easier to get off the shelf than mucking around finding suitable stock to turn them from. I also have a T508 tirfor, the pins are a different arrangement and a different size.

Try one of the Rigging supplies shops, Blackwood Hodge, Bullivants, etc., Regards Frank.

Only person I've known to break shearpins in a Brano (pretty sure) ended up making their own. From memory they were a standard diam brass rod.

I broke mine too Martyn and if you remember we used the replacements from the handle and I still haven't got any more.

They are 6mm brass I'm fairly sure.
