plumber, because of the off-set Fairlead on the Joyner winches, wire tends to bite in tight. This does happen with all wire rope winches but is worse with this off-set. Two things you can do. 1: Make a new plate to house the Fairlead correctly in front of the drum or 2: Replace the wire rope with Braided rope. I guess the sensible thing to do is both but the Braid will handle angle pulling and loading on to the drum better than wire. 1/4" rated at 3800kg is the one to go for. It's rated higher than the wire we are using. Don't be tempted to go for a stronger Braid because your loose out on length that can be feed on. Here's what I mean. http://www.4wdbits.co.nz/ProductDetails.aspx?productID=958

My winch will wind out but will not wind in have anyone else had this problem

The extra weight of the T4 seems to be a problem with ours, when we had the electrical problem last year we needed to use the winch to load into the trailer and it struggled with the weight. George did have a problem getting it to rewind but he finally got it done. A new winch is on Georges list of things to buy but in this economy it's going to wait a bit.

      Just bought my first SxS 4 days ago. Looking forward to hitting some trails and back roads. Having a few issues with the machine(Vector 500), but nothing serious. Just setup and tweaking. I would like to by some accessories, but I don’t seem to be able to find much which is machine specific. Or at least my machine. Does hisun offer accessories? Any advice would be appreciated.

      I have a Coleman Outfitter 550 purchased in January 2022 that runs and operates pretty well.  65 hours on it so far.   It is a work vehicle for my 10 hilly acres with two 1 acre woods and 5 acres of "lawn".  The rest is under a lake. 
      My parking brake does not seem to have any grip.  It worked when new but after a month or so, it is just almost useless.     I press the parking brake pedal hard until it stops. Still, it won't hold even on slight inclines.   I don't see the caliper move as I press the brake pedal down.  There seems to be plenty of pad left on it and the rotor is shiny as if it is rubbing a little when applied, but not enough to stop it from rolling. 
      Any thoughts on possible causes?

      Put a new carb on the 500 to replace the leaking OE one.  Machine idles fine and mid and top end runs great.  It tends to have a hesitation right from the start - bottom end.   Thinking it may be the air/fuel screw??  I didn't do anything with the carb out of the box and is it direct replacement for my machine.  Of interest is the manual choke doesn't seem to work very good now.... wonder is it getting too much air?
      Any help appreciated!
