The slow part - I was thinking that as a new winch user, especially one who doesn't have other experienced winch users to guide me, that the slow part would be just fine.
Also, since they seem to have about the same horsepower electric motors as other winches, it would seem that the slowness is just a lower gearing - which I'm totally fine with since that usually means a given motor can pull even more weight, or isn't worked as hard pulling the weight it does have to pull.
I don't have one yet, but I may go with the harbor freight 9000 winch. The 12000 is just too much extra weight for no real reason on a small Jeep IMHO.
