Price: $550.00
Pros: Durable, reliable, gets the job done.
Cons: None for the type of wheeling that I do.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: As an entry level winch for a "weekend warrior" type of wheeler I think this more than gets the job done. I asked around for recommendations and many people told me to stick with Warn if it was anywhere in my budget. This particular model was reasonably priced (compared to the other models in the line) and the reviews were excellent. I've used it a dozen times or so now and it performed excellent on each, which two of them being a series of repeated pulls during a recovery over the course of 25 minutes or so. Very pleased.

Pros: American made, local service
Cons: None so far
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Although I bought this winch used, I took it to the Warn factory repair in Milwaukie, Oregon to be "freshened up". Turns out my winch was about 25+ years old but in good shape. I can't say enough good about the Warn people, they made the winch look like brand new, with all the newest upgrades, for quite reasonable money. I'm very happy with the performance and the expense. Mike at Warn service, you are the greatest!

Pros: Easy to install, Dependable
Cons: None
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Got a decent deal through a sale on Quadratec. I use the winch about every other wheeling trip. It spools plenty fast for me and never had a problem pulling myself or anyone else out (mostly mud around here). I went for the steel cable but plan on upgrading to synthetic eventually.

Pros: Fast. Warn reputation. Looks good.
Cons: No bracket for solenoid box.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: So far, so good. I've only used it a couple of times but it's much faster than my old Champion and it pulls hard. The price was good at $539 delivered. It was disappointing that there was no bracket to mount the control box.

Comments: Great product. Pulled myself and friends out of some bogs with this bad boy. Dragged my friends jeep out with his parking brake on and his tires locked (not spinning) without a problem. Good deal for an affordable price. Got free shipping with it also. Mounted it with the warn winch plate (sold separately)

Cons: Price

This is a strong winch that never lets me down. I've used it on several occasions without any problems. The only real downside of the winch is it's price, but if you watch eBay long enough and wait for online sales, you can get one at a decent price.

Price: $300.00
Pros: Warn name and durability Bought used for 300 in outstanding condition
Cons: Mounting the solenoid box was a pain Well, winch is a little slow, but gets the job done
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Tough reliable winch that gets the job done always.
It's a little slow but its an entry level winch so great speed is not expected and compared to other brands entry level winches it's faster.
Mounting the solenoid box was a pain.
