I would much rather have a winch that pulls only 12000lbs and still be able to make another pull if need be.
Pretty funny... the Warn pulled to over 16,000 lbs. before failing and you find fault with that.

Not that we could ever get our winches to pull 16,000 lbs. except in a test lab.

16,000 lbs doesn't help if it explodes when it gets there. What do you do when you max it out, it explodes and you need it again in the same day? I would rather have a winch that stalls at 12,000lbs but doesn't explode. In which case I could add another pulley to the mix and try again. There is no trying again if it explodes.

You're really complaining about a 9500 lb. winch failing at 16,500 lbs.? Congratulations on being a great spin doctor.

I agree with this. I would rather it stall at it rating and work again. You can always try again. And it will still work tomorrow. If it explodes its done till its rebuilt or replaced. No second try.

Great for Warn. They can build a winch that costs 4x the amount of my Engo and for that low low cost you get a winch that will pollute water (so much for treading lightly), fail to pull even half of its line before draining a battery, and explode after pulling 16,500lbs. But I will tell you what they do do well. Their controller is definitely better than Engo because it "feels better" in your hand. They also make really good stickers! Oh, and don't forget they buy their way to the number one spot in winch shootouts because they were out performed by winches a quarter of the cost!

Instead I will take my Engo which will not pollute water, almost finishes the pull without draining a battery, and stalls out at a weak 12,000lbs and does not explode. Instead it allows me to step back, rethink my strategy and try again. It also came with a wireless controller (so much for Warn's controller being so much better). Oh, and yes it is a whole 3 decibels louder than Warn.

I lol'd on that one. Thank you for that.

If I see someone stuck with a dead Chinese winch, I'll winch them out. I'll laugh at them a bit first, but I'd still pull them out. In all fairness though, if the roles were reversed, I would expect the same treatment.

Yes. More importantly though, was this line:

Quote:
In conclusion, while all of the winches in this test have strengths that distinguish them, the Warn 9.5xp is the most recommendable winch of the group we tested.
They identify that every winch had certain qualities that make them desirable, they just felt the Warn was the most well rounded.

Mine has survived 11 years now. But I do agree with you, I would rather have it stall at a lower pull the break at a higher pull. As far as the battery consumption, that doesn't concern me.
