Neighbor is trying to dump on me a Hicky(?) sidewinder winch. Its older and is setup to bolt up between the frame rails of a 70's Chev Truck. I might get it for a trailor winch.

Anybody know about these things?

They were in their prime in the mid 60's. Tough winches. Almost impossible to get parts for. IIRC, Advance Adapters may carry some parts for them. Hickey is the name.

I did find some info. I hear they are good winches, were around in the 70's, went bust, AA bought the patent, and then retired it.

I thought it might be a good trailor winch or something. I might fit it up under the dually just to have a something better then nothing on it type of deal.
