I need winch help!

Hope this is the correct forum to post, if not please let me know.
Background info- my wife has had 4 reconstruction surgeries on left ankle. Ankle still gives out her at any time. July 4th she stepped in a small hole and shattered her right ankle-the good ankle. We have done the reconstruction surgery and all that. Brings me to the fact that I want to get an electric wheel chair for her, so far insurance will not cover it. Blah, blah ....to the point, I need to build a way to haul the chair once I buy one. K. google wheel chair lift...chit is expensive! I can build using an electric trailer jack, but thinking I would rather use an electric winch. The E-winch would be the only part to replace on failure. Now to my question....who makes a good small 12V power in/power out winch? Are the E-winchs for boat trailers -power in /power out?

As far as I know they are. Just about any small atv winch should serve your purpose well and some are offered with a remote control which would be a nice feature for what you're doing. Sorry to hear about the wife btw.

Should be power out. I havent seen a free spool out winch in a long time. Safety thing so they make them power in and out.

IMO, you cant beat the badland winches. Even better deal with a coupon.

I agree! A little ingenuity and I bet you could come up with something way cooler. For sure need finish pics.
