    Can it only be rotated in 90deg increments?

    I'm seriously thinking about giving one of these a go since my Warn motor has crapped itself. My warn has the 4 bolts facing forward with the clutch lever at the back near the top so I'd definitely need to rotate the gearbox on one of these.

    Personally i would and speaking from experience and some serious winching over 3 years of ownership i am happy to give them a plug on the winch And yes you can rotate it to where ever you want it

    Indeed. There are a few here who seem to have unlimited budgets. Sure, in their world the stuff from this mob is not worth it, but the winches and driving lights etc, that they recommend are worth more than my car, and are well outside my, for what is basically a hobby, budget. The Domim8r winch I have now is, on appearances, better than the Warn XDXXXX it replaces, at about a fifth of the price. The previous winch let me and my son down to the point that we spent 8 hours trying to dig ourselves out, in precisely the situation that a winch is for.

    Sure, a RENVA ( is that right? ) may last a bit longer, but if I service my Domin8r as they say, and run the rope out so often, surely it will do what I want it to do, which is get me out of a hole that poor driving got me into? Hopefully that won't be too often.

    synthetic winch rope...

    Hi All

    I'm about to rip into a service of my old XD9000 and would like to replace the scratchy old cable with some nice blue rope. Can anyone recommend where to buy this?

    Has anyone tried "Dyneema" branded or is the hundred dollar 2 mile roll of similar looking stuff from China okay? I mean, the branded gear could very well come out the same factory door as the cheaper Chinesey alternative.

    If youtube recovery videos are anything to go by, I'd reckon the Chinese synthetic rope could be thoroughly tried and improved or at least tried ...

    Make sure that the rope has a SK75 rating and you should be good to go.
    I noticed in the specs for the Dominator that it didn't say that the rope was SK75 So I replaced it.
    This only cost me $120 for 30m of 10mm rope with a 10,800kg breaking strain, The original rope supplied by Supercenter was 9.5mm 26m and the breaking strain wasn't specified.
