    I have an aeration business on the side which is the main reason for my Tacoma purchase. The only problem I might face is that the rise from street to top of tailgate is about 32" whereas the same rise to get into my wife's Sienna (used that in lieu of truck for 2 years) is about 23". The aerator weighs about 200 lbs.

    While I can get the aerator in the back, there is considerably more effort than before. I use 5' fixed wood ramps (can't be longer 'cause I need to close tailgate).

    If needed, I have been thinking about a winch setup but would like it to be temporary install (i.e. portable) and easy to use. I ran across the WARN Pullzall corded and cordless winches last night when researching online.

    1st question....Does anyone have any experience with this type of WARN winch? (link included below to WARN site)

    http://www.warn.com/utility/pullzall/tools.shtml

    2nd question....Will the corded version work with the power outlet in the bed of my TRD Sport version Taco?

    3rd question....Will the bed rail cleats support the winch and pulling the 200 lb aerator into the bed?

    I appreciate any direction you folks can give. I really haven't been able to locate a similar thread on this site, so I hope that I am not duplicating things.

    If this needs to be moved to different forum, please let me know.

    Thanks!!

    I have the 120v version of that winch. Haven't really used it for any pulling yet so i can't comment on how well it works.

    The bed outlet is rated for 400w and the warn winch runs at 1200w. Hard to say how many watts it runs at when pulling a 200lb load.

    Bed rail cleats are rated for 200 lbs. Better off to install tie downs in the front of the bed floor and pull from there.

    try making an angle iron "beam" say 2"x2". connect it to the 2 front bed bolts by using longer bolts, use the beam as a connection for the winch. the DC one should run fine on your battery with the engine. that might be overkill for 200 lb , but in reality its 200 lb plus the incline, it may be more like 250lb range of pull for the winch.
    Another plan could be to connect it to the front rail in 2 places , and re enforce it by connecting it to the side rails in 1 place. Im just leery of ripping a rail out, but its only 200 lb

    It should be less than 200 lbs because you are using an inline plane. 200lbs would be if you lifted it vertically. So as long as it has wheels that roll decent it should be less than 200.
    Assuming zero rolling resistance (not realistic but simplified) and assuming a 45 degree slope, it would be 200 lbs x .707 (tan of 45) so about 140 lbs.

    Will the cable rub against the tailgate?

    I would say yes it would...if the winch is mounted in the front of the bed by the cab.

    If you are just planning on using it for a 200lb aerator, just buy a utility winch from harbor freight rather than spending all the money on the warn.
