I have a Champion 7500lb. winch. I've had it for about 5 years and it has held up great. I do not know exactly how many pulls it has, but I would say probably 20 or so off-road and I've also used it in my landscaping work to clear out trees and pull stumps out of the ground. It is a little slow, but it is durable. The only bad thing I can really say is that when I first got it I was pulling some bushes out of the ground with it for an entire day and I think I might have overheated it and it quit working properly. I pulled the motor off and the magnets were cracked. It was still under warranty, so they sent me another motor. That was about 4 years ago and I have since learned how to take care of it. I probably just jinxed myself.
If I have to drill out another bolt, I'm just going to start welding parts on.
