    I have reliably used/installed these 3 bolt to housing (Tide Tamer) units for several years. They easily replace the “Direct Drive” formerly “Hattaras” SS drives that can be known to have cable spool disintegration issues in very saline conditions.

    Great price/value and considerably more lifting power (especially when using the TT compound to housing cable routing) than the newest DD from Tide Tamer.

    This lift winch works well, is quiet and dependable. I did have some issues while installing it.

    There was cosmetic damage to the cover and switch, probably due to shifting of parts during shipping. In my opinion the unit was not packaged very well. The parts, many of them very heavy, were simply wrapped in paper and stacked on top of one another in the box. Of course this makes them subject to shifting during shipment. Other manufacturers use cardboard or foam forms, especially for heavy parts such as motors, to prevent this kind of shipping damage.
    The handle on the switch did not stay on. In fact it was not attached out of the box – probably shipping damage.
    The provided 8-32 cover screws were too small. The cover screws could not be tightened. I used some 10-32 screws which fit fine.
    There were no real instructions for assembly. There were some generic instructions most of which applied to boat house lift winches, but nothing specific to the PWC winch. For example, no instructions on which nuts and bolts to use where or how to attach the cable. Someone with little experience might have trouble with this. Also, the manual stated that the gear case is shipped with no grease, but there was in fact grease.
    I notified the seller of these problems, and I did get a replacement switch sent to me. But despite several emails back and forth, and a phone call to the manufacturer 7 days ago, I am still without a replacement cover after 6+ weeks.
