I'm interested in trying, but what do you use to fit into the square crank opening?

I have a battery operated drill that has a clutch, this is good to stop the drill from twisting my arm. I use a 3/4 in.socket. Williamson, Sears Craftman has 8 point sockets which is essentially a square socket. I don't know what size you need, but you can buy just the size socket you need. Or you can take one of the hand cranks and cut off the handle part and adapt it to the cordless drill.(two hand cranks came with my TT) Hope this helps

I think this would be the best option instead of a drill. Maybe a bit more expensive than a high torque drill but the right way IMO

Don't use an impact types , the hammering action is very hard on the mechanisms.

I tried battery and electric drills on our old pup. It was just to heavy and they would not lit it.

Thanks to bother RickAE and nbhybrid for your input and suggestions. Never really thought about the socket option, I'll check that out. I also like the idea of a permanently attached power winch. Great suggestions!
