I see them pop up once in a while either on the online For-Sale ads or Facebook under crabbing and commercial fishing pages.  Unfortunately what they are asking for them, you could almost buy brand new.  The best time to find them is at the end of the season or the beginning.  The avg asking price I have seen is about $800 for an electric or $600 for a hydraulic without the motor or tank.

If you want a winder that will pull in a freightliner anchor, smoke your battery and cook your cables running it, and weighs 300 pounds......any commercial winder will do.

If you want something simpe to haul in a 1200' line, those little winders work perfect.

Again, the problem with a decent electric winder is that weight and amperage

Depends on the size of the boat.

 I had a commercial 12 volt winder on a 19' Carolina Skiff and had no problems. It wasn't to heavy. My 50 honda (4 stroke) handled the voltage just fine. I even used an electric winch to pick up my dipper.

The secret to the volts is a 900 cranking amps battery and the right gauge wire to all.

I just installed a Chesapeake Winder on a new boat for a buddy of mine.  Its well-made, and made from quality materials.  Seems like it has enough power to pull in the average trotline.  I would not use it to pull your boat along.  Unhook 1 anchor and sit and let it pull while you jog the boat down the line.

The Chesapeake winder is made of small lines and short term use. They don't last with that small motor. I have 4400' of line and go 4 days a week.

if he made a deluxe model with 1/2hp and next size gear box, then it would justify the additional cost, maybe extra 10lb

I just use a separate 12v starting/deep cycle to pull in 2400 to 3200ft. Lasts numerous trips before having to re-charge. BTw- takes 5 mins to pull 1200ft
