Hi, I am Mike, welcome. I'm reviewing your question.

What is the brand name and model number of the winch?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
it doesn't have a model number ,there are no identification plates or anything stamped on it. that's why I asked hoping you can do the mathematics on the gears and diameters ect. As this is a fairly old unit the only thing readable is the ratings on the 1HP motor but even its brand name is unreadable
