Comments: It's a little slow and noisy, but for the price it has saved my butt more than once. When you are stuck in a nasty situation with no other help, it's a lifesaver.

Comments: Slow, but has worked very good for me. Make sure you buy a winch accessory kit with any winch (tree strap, snatch block, tow strap, gloves, etc).
