Winch from Canadian Tire

Hay All
In Canada, Canadian Tire has this 8000 lb winch on for 499.99
Do you think it's any good

A 8000 lb warn winch would cost 800+

I've seen this winch used on many occasions. Works surprisingly well for the cost. Only issue I've seen is that it's considerably slower then a warn etc.

Go to Costco, they have them cheaper.

look at the hp rating. It is only 2.2. I think Warn is like 4.8.

Isn't Chicago brand the same as the harbor freight? I think they just put their name on it.
