Comments: For the money, I say you can't beat it. It may not be the fastest, or strongest on the market, but If you have a limited budget like the rest of us. i would recommend this winch.

Comments: great winch for the money. $280 shipped to my door. the first time i used it it more than paid for itself. just cause it's not expensive doesn't mean it's complete junk.
