Price: $650.00
Pros: Bomb Proof Winch
Cons: Requires non standard mounting bracket
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Mid 80s manufactured Warn 8274. Not sure how many rebuilds it has been through, but I bought it with a fresh refurbish.

Awesome winch that I hopefully will be able to hand down to my kids or maybe grand kids.

Bummer the design requires a special mounting bracket versus being able to use any bumper with a 4" x 10" mounting platform. I did pick up the Hanson Offroad mounting plate and it is awesome.

Pros: I completely rebuilt it like new. Looks great, performs better. Got it free from dad, just needed to have some TLC
Cons: Are you crazy, nothing.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I am running the 8074 winch which is the older version of the 8274. Some differences in how the brakes works and no free spool option.

Comments: I've had this 8274 for a while now. The thing is a tank, I understand why this model has been around so long. For me at least, it's very easy to work on.

Comments: Super fast line speed and durability. Very durable winch and holds a ton of cable - just remember, the more layers of cable the more your load rating is diminished.

Comments: Awesome 25 year old winch that a guy used to use hauling his boat onto a trailer. I bought it and put in the updated motor that Warn now has on the new 8274 and it is fast and strong. Highly recommend if you can find one.!

Comments: Stout and considered one of best Warn winches of all time, the 8274 is the precursor to the M8274-50. It has half the speed and horsepower of the newer one.
