    Electric winches on expo trucks.

    Hi . Was keen to get a few views on winches in a thread here. I know there is a dedicated thread section for recovery gear but I thought it might be good to hear from those with trucks of a 6 ton GVM and over what they think rather than just what Jeep/Cruiser/F Truck guy might use. Certainly no...
