Warn M8000 with Roller VS M8000 with Hawse

I'm looking at the Warn M8000 winch. On 4wd.com there are 2 available. One with a hawse fairlead and one with a roller fairlead.

Why is the one with the hawse fairlead $324 more than the one with the roller?

Thanks!

Hmm, that seems like a huge mark up for a hawse fairlead... and 20ft. less of cable. I wonder if it's a misprint somewhere or something.

Looking at them I show the only differences are the ones DoGood listed above. Doesn't sound right to me either. You could call them for clarification I suppose. I just purchased the $539 version. I haven't installed it yet. I did the in store pick up option and saved a bunch of $$$ on shipping.

Does the one with the Hawse incluce synthetic rope instead of wire rope? just guessing that might be the difference.......Im looking at this also, I would like to know how you like it. some ppl say they arent a "real" Warns.....I think anything Warn would be better than an off brand....but Ive also read reviews on Smittybilt Superwinch etc......and most were happy with them.... good luck and post your thoughts and opinions on it

Still a pretty good deal, I think they wanted like $60 for shipping when I ordered mine.

My first thought was synthetic rope but if it is it's a misprint cause it said wire rope on both of the web pages.
And an M8000 is a real Warn. It's basically their bottom of the line but I've heard only good things.

Not sure of the difference but my M8000 is over 20 years old and still working like a champ. I would call and find out the difference, otherwise go with the cheaper one and buy the roller later.

No idea what the difference in price is for, but you can buy the steel fairlead from Warn seperately if you want it.

The price difference is because they started the M8000 w/roller fairlead as a promotional special a couple of years ago and have never raised the price back up. I'm surprised they never dropped the price of the unit with Hawse to a comparable price. No difference other than cable length and fairlead...

Was at a 4 Wheel Parts sponsored show yesterday in Orlando and they were offering this winch for $479 w/ roller fairlead for a show special...
