Hello, I have a dumas probar h-29 sail winch and canít seem to find what the torque is for it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You should post a picture. There is a probar, a Dumas probar, and a worm gear model. Some are just bump with a switch and others have servo guts to become proportional. Modern servos have some significant advantages including weight and big boat have branched to multiturn sailwinch.

The 3702 is advertised for up to 700 sq in.

I don't know the exact torque of the Probar,but we used to use them in the Soling 50(800 sq in) sailing here in the trade winds,they have lots of torque and could trim anything that I know of including a J boat.

If you have either a probar proportional or worm drive winch that is in good working order it does not need replacement and has more than enough torque for an SB in any wind range.

I think pwallace is might be a ozmun winch.
You guys feel confident about the torque for a sb.
So it stays.
Thank you for all your help.

I agree it's prob an Ozmund which also has lots of torque but plastic gears opposed to the Probar steel gears.The Probar winch has steel pins for the gear shafts with 3 visible circlips on top of the casing, where the winch pictured has screws.
