Ramsey's are damn good winches...check the cable for fraying or rust...might be a good idea to replace it with synthetic line because it has no recoil if it snaps, has a very high tensilary strength (ballpark of 20,000 pounds) and it can easily be repaired on the trail.

Depends on its shape. If it does need new rope/cable like stated then you may want to pass because you can get a new 8500lb Ramsy winch for $400.
