The 3 year warranty can be purchased by going to a store or calling within 30 days of the order. Badland winches have gotten some decent reviews for being an inexpensive winch and can be fit with a synthetic line. I just snagged one and figured I should pass this along!
ZXR 12000 Lbs. Truck/SUV Winch
MxRacer , Dec 2, I was thinking about getting this but I would definetly get the warranty on it. I've always wondered about this one. Anyone on here actually use it? I'd like to get some first hand reviews. CowboyTaco , Dec 19, I had a small one from harbor freight on my last fourwheeler, one time the lins got tangled up and I couldn't use it until I untangled it. It was a small winch though maybe a pound one. I drove through a creek and submerged it in clean water many times, only sunk it down in mud a couple times. Still worked up until it got stolen, I even bought another one for my new atv.
I have installed two of these on a friends equipoment trailers that get used daily. I have also seen many on the trail as well. One thing is for sure, I have seen 10 times the broken warn winches as I have seen these, or smittybuilts. Heck everyone I know with a warn can't use it bc its broke. Vehicle: R. I ran one for about 3 years in Arizona and New Mexico.
I first got it to help clear my property in az and probably pulled out 40 trees and shubs. I did snap the cable from useing my truck to yank a big root out, took it back and they gave me a whole new one under the warranty! After that I had the second one for many years and is still running strong. Only complaint was the amp self resetting circuit breaker thing it comes with, it would trip with multiple uses and you would have to wait for them to cool down and re-set. I think that's a good idea any way because you can trip the breaker your self and not have the power cables energized all the time then.
SGT Taco , Dec 19, Sounds pretty decent then, especially for the price. I'd still like to know of others experiences though.
It's not the fastest winch out there but I wouldn't expect it to be. I mounted to the front of my truck and use it to pull trees out of low areas on my property. Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend Was this review helpful?
Here's what I like: The assembly was simple and straight forward. I had it up and running in no time. I also purchased the wireless remote and the hitch mount. Every thing mated perfectly.

The power and speed are perfect. My trees are no match for this winch. The cable is heavy enough for the work but is still manageable. The manual mentions not exceeding 15 degree angles up or down for the cable coming out of the fairlead. Unless you're cutting down sequoias, that leaves plenty of opportunity to get the hookup high enough in the tree to control the fall.

The hitch mount will enable me to store this winch when not in use. I would would expect that to add life to the unit. It is heavy; thanks for the handles on the hitch mount. I am happy with the winch, the mount, and the wireless remote latter two will be reviewed separately and would recommend all to a friend. Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend 2 of 2 customers found this review helpful Was this review helpful?
The install was a little bit tricky, being that I was installing it inside the bumper of my truck, and the fact that the winch weighs 80lbs, plus the mounting plate, made it hard to maneuver into place. Btw Harbor Freight carries the mounting plate that will work with the rzr. The only mod I had to do was trim the plastic that covers where the winch goes.

I wanted to retain as much of it as possible so as not to leave such a large opening with the winch installed. Last edited by doonzer; July 23rd, at PM. My dad has one on his mule he hasn't had any problems with it. If your looking for a wench on the cheap look on ebay for a venom winch i just bought a lb winch with mount, synthetic cable and billet failaine for shipped. I've had one on my ranger forv3 years without a single problem.
Cliffziglar is offline. Something else to think about is where you are ridding, mud and forest a cheaper winch is fine but if your going to be rocks crawling a lot you need a winch with a good break witch the cheaper ones don't have. Drive Friendly Ride Happy. OHVnut is offline.

I doubt I'll ever replace it enough to equal the price of a Warn. I hear the winch from summit racing are great too. Anyone try one?https://etfanalli.ml
