Did the first flat spot go away when the second showed up? Probably 'moving flat spot' syndrome which requires purchase of an 1100.

Well, I hear you, but the 'over the top' direction is the factory original. The primary use for the winch will be raising the plow, but it will see some use as a winch I suppose. I don't really like...
