Haven't even mounted it yet, I'll let you know once I get out on the trials. Only $400 after shipping though, so I may just get what I paid for.
edit (22 FEB 10):
Ok, used this thing several times now and it works! I put 100' of ORO X-Line onto the spool and it just pulls and pulls. We got two vehicles stuck in the middle of nowhere on our way to a duck hunt and probably made three dozen pulls in 5 hours. We made pulls with 90' of line out and a tow strap, we dipped our lines in the mud and water, we pulled in excess of 45 seconds at a time, we pulled with engine off and engine on... we pulled while spinning wheels and rocking vehicles.
This winch is an amazing value. It is a solid piece of reliable equipment and certainly worth the money. See my post on "getting stuck without a winch point" for the whole story.
