As far as I know the thing in the foreground is of use only to truckers with flatbed trailers. But I happen to know a cash-strapped trucker with a flatbed who might be happy to have it, so I’ll see. Otherwise it’ll continue on its way to the dump, I guess.
The two come-alongs, though – there’s just no excuse for throwing those away. I’ve been over them both, and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with the little one that some WD40 and a lifetime that didn’t involve years of lying in the dirt couldn’t fix. The big one is the same, though a nonessential part does need a new roll pin. They both now work just fine. There’s no fraying in the cables, there’s just nothing wrong with them. It’s ridiculous to throw them away. I’ve wanted a come-along for a long time so I’m keeping one. A home for the other will show up at some point.
