      Correct, but you need an inverter capable of producing it on the 12V side.

          To clarify a bit of terminology:

          Inverter - changes DC to AC.

          Power Supply - changes AC to DC (in tube type equipment it also changes AC voltage to a different voltage (most often lower to drive heaters in the tubes))

            There wasn't anything on the winch to give any information. Its pretty old, really old. If there ever was a label or tag its gone.

              Just spend $160.00 and buy the 880 lb. hoist from Cabelas and save your money on a high dollar inverter.
              Yeah, this is sort of the conclusion that I have come to. I thought this was a $20 fix. I had no idea how complicated it is. Its weird to me how simple it is to go from DC to AC and how many cheap options there are to solve that problem. I never considered how complicated it is to go the other way. I assumed it was simpler.

                It's actually cheaper to go from AC to DC. What drives the price up in both directions is the amount of current produced.
