My original 39 year old Powerwinch has passed on and was replaced with a new Lofrans Tigres. I have noticed that the majority of GBs that I have seen over the years have this anchor winch installed but not many of the owners knew how to maintain and service them. My Tigres came with a CD disk with a number of PDF files translated from French. These files are also available online, for installation and tech specifications. The maintenance write-up is not very complete so when I saw the attached PDF files I thought I would share them with you.

Thanks, Tom, for posting some very good information. I'm sure others will find it quite useful.

You might want to post them to the Manuals section as well. Smile

Bob the upload worked today, actually it worked too well. There are two copies of the Lofrans Oil Capacity PDFs. Would you please delete one of them.
