Dear Quality Products NorthWest, LLC;
I calculate that I haul approximately 3.21 miles of gear a year with my STP-1600 Safe-T-Puller. I usually set two strings of 10, 36″ pots in 60 to 70 fathoms. After the first year I took it all apart thinking that it would need servicing. I was wrong. My Puller hangs over the side where it is exposed to salt spray and rain all the time and has never failed me.
Have been using a Safe-T-Puller for seven years now and have bent two different custom made davits, now I use the stock davit that comes with the Safe-T-Puller, it never freezes up and has held up to some real abuse without bending.
