Tow hitches come in three classes. Class I and class II hitches are reserved for towing lighter loads, and they use a square hole that measures in at 1 ¼" by 1 ¼". Heavier hauling requires a more substantial class III hitch, which uses a 2" by 2" square hole.
As delicious as he is spooky, Count Chocula began surfacing on grocery store shelves back in 1971 as one of General Mills' first monster-themed, high-sugar cereals. Children everywhere loved sinking their teeth into this wickedly delicious blend of chilling chocolate kibble and macabre marshmallows. Unfortunately, Count Chocula's popularity started waning in recent years, but it can still be found lurking around the cereal aisle during Halloween.
A dead man is a winching technique for creating your own anchoring point when no suitable spot is at hand. In a nutshell, you make a dead man by burying a sizeable, weighty object (like a spare tire or log) in a shallow grave. Attach a chain to the object before the burial, and then connect the chain to the winch. No one knows for sure whether the first dead man was actually a corpse, but legends abound.
When you disengage the clutch on your winch, you go into freespooling mode. The drum rotates freely, allowing you to pull the cable out to your anchor point.
A hawse fairlead is a small, oval-shaped opening that the winch cable feeds through. It has two functions: to help guide the cable during the haul, and to protect the cable. There are no moving parts on a hawse fairlead.
Short for Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor Field-Effect Transistor, M.O.S.F.E.T. is an insulated semiconductor that's widely used in both analog and digital circuitry. This advanced technology delivers rapid switching speeds, produces little output (heat), and can withstand extreme operating temperatures. Winches equipped with a M.O.S.F.E.T. control box will work in conditions ranging from -40?F to +180?F.
