They are electric anchor winches.

Anybody used them? How do the work? Do they hold up well?

I'm looking at putting a DeckHand40 on my boat...But want some feedback from some that have used them as to there usefullness or should I keep looking?

I found them for about 250 bucks and that includes shipping.

I agree six, don't waste your money. You can get a high powered winch for 300 bucks or so. If you have connections:D , alot less!
I have had my warn for over 10 yrs and it was used when I bought the raft! It is rated for 1500 lbs, but I would doubt it would lift thyat much. Hell, that would pull the nose off the ole raft!
If you look at all the riverboats on the river, they all have heavy duty wenches. Some go for over 600 bucks. I would not take your boat out with less than 45 lbs! The current we seen this weekend was nothing compaired to what it will be in 2 weeks on the Joe! The Kazoo is another animal, alot slower most of the time, usually 40-50% of the flow of the Joe!:)
