        How about some pictures hooked up to a davit? I currently have a safe-T-puller and am very satisfied, but am always looking for a better mouse trap, plus this old, bearded lobstah guy that frequents the forum says they are the cat's meow.:eek:

            More Specs please

            Just wanted some more specs. I too have a safe-t-puller and am in need of replacing it. Your model looks similar to the safe-t-hauler, do you have a version where the hauler is on the head of the davit? I assume yours is electric? How many amps does it draw? What type of speeds and what weights are recommended?

            Thanx for any info

              Well guys here's you chance to get some info right from the haulers mouth. I personally can't understand why they hang the hauler on the end of the davit??? it just makes more work in my humble opinion, more dangerous trying to loop the rope over the hauler up in the air like that & what do you do with the rope after it comes out of the hauler? somebody still has to guide /coil it into a tote or barell?? What about all the water(and broke up jellyfish parts) raining down on you or blown by the wind coming off the sheaves?? I'm sure somebody is going to tell me how easy there set up works but i still think a davit mounted hauler it a lot easier/safer working.
              Anyway I hope that our new member, Larry, can answer all of your questions about the Electra Dyne haulers then you can PM me or Larry and get the rest of the info we can't post here.

                hello:we do not have a version that mounts on head of a davit,i put a picture on last night of our version,which we have been using for 25 years.it is electric 3/4 hrs.motor that draws 36-45 amps.based on a 100 lbs. line speed for the 20-1 gear ratio is 290,and 200 for the 30-1 gear ratio,on our 10 inch hauler.over the years fisherman all over the world have told us that they have used this in excess of the 250 lbs. limit we advertise.hope this helps

                  That pretty much answers all my questions about the specs. I couldn't find the recommended # limit on you're website in the past. Now to decide on which gear ratio would be best. I sure like the speed of 20:1 for fast retrieves while prospecting with single pots but wonder how that would do pulling 5 pot sets. Does it have anything like an overheat relay to protect the motor or is it better to just go with 30:1 ? Steve, I'd like your advice also if possible.

                  Thanks

                    5 pot sets would be no problem with either ratio,all depends on how deep you are and how fast you want it to haul.if they are set with some distance in between them.i am going to change some wording in the web site so it is more user friendly.most of the time i talk to fisherman on the phone and forget that we have a web site.still old fashion.but i hear you guys are in 5 to7 hundred feet;so maybe the faster one would be best.

                      Looks like a quality set up. Similar to the Safe-T-Puller that we see so much of on the left coast. Perhaps the electrodyne is a right coast thing? The safe-T-puller can be mounted the same way if you would rather not have it up at the top of the davit. Your puller is faster, but geared differently. The "left coast" version is rated at 1.1 hp, 1.6hp, or 2.1hp depending on the model and geared with a 159:1 ratio. I pull 5 pots on a string and have not had any issues with the 1.6hp model. It pulls plenty hard. I would really like to see one of these electroynes in action, though. Somebody go out and buy one so we can see it at work!

                        I took a quick pic of the back of the unit for you guys to see.

                        Wow a 159:1 gear ratio!! it must look like a watch inside that thing lots of little gears spinning around??? I have a customer who bought a E-D last year, his name on here is Alasgun and i do have some pictures of his install so do a search of his posts or pm me your email address and i'll dig up some of the pictures and his comments on how he likes his hauler. I've got a E-D here if you'd like to stop out and take a look at one and i'll have it running at all the shows this spring.
                        I really think these 2 haulers are worlds apart in the ways they are built and set up, i'm not knocking your STP but with all those gears spinning around it just makes me wonder??? The E-D has a Boston Gear box on the back of it, quite a heavy duty unit, and the motor is huge, best of all its all AMERICAN made. I guess maybe i need to hook up a E-D on my rig and we'll tie off across from each other in Whittier and turn the two haulers on and see who pulls what out of each others boats.

                          Dave,
                          I think it ain't gonna much matter if your pulling one pot or 5 pots with the 20:1 gearbox your gonna blow the antenna's right off them shrimp. You'd have to have 20lbs of weight in each pot to even get close to the low end rating on the E-D's, even i don't have 20lbs of weight in my pots(yet). Here's part of a email that Alasgun sent me on his E-D. He fishes 4 pots on a line @100ft apart.
                          "Yep, I'm in that 20:1 range and power is not a problem. As to speed, I've always meant to time how long it takes me to pick up 1100 ft of line / gear but have not done that!
                          I ran mine all last season coupled to a group 27 Lifeline battery that was in the cabin with me and NOT TIED to the charging system. I could pull morning and evening for 3 days but would notice it taking longer on that last day. This year It will be tied in and I can pull continuously then. (not that I need more shrimp, thanks to my good tutelage on the subject, I'm a killer!) That last line should be good advertizing.

                            From obscurity to front page!

                            Wow, i'm famous, well probably not but at least your talking about me and that's the way it should be.
                            Let's see, the last time this puller thing got any real press I was dubed the "Master of Metal"; oh what a glourious day that was.

                            Anyway, first things first. Steve I'm home now, will be till the end of the month and am sure looking foward to the breakfast, call and lets make that happen.

                            I'm happy to see some interest being generated in the E-dyne pullers. I know Steve well enough and am somewhat familuar with the factory guy from a couple conversations we had prior to my purchase, and I'd be happy to throw my name in the hat for anyone asking questions. Better yet, Ive got pictures! This site don't do pictures good so if you are interested in mine, send me a P.M and include an email address. If you can afford one, you will quit looking elsewhere and wondering if your on top of the heap. If you can't afford one, borrow some money, being on top of the heap is everything.

                            Mike (Alasgun)

                              Funny stuff Steve! I think I will wait until my puller dies before buying an ED. FYI, the price difference between the two is negligible, also and theSTP is also made right here on the left coast of America FWIW. I do like the the speed of the ED.
