What is the best winch for the price?

10 posts in this topic

I have a Yamaha Rhino and am looking to buy a winch, it will be used mostly for plowing to lift and lower the blade and on occasion if i get stuck, I have looked at the Warn and know they are a good winch but they are so expensive is there any other winch out there that will compete with the Warn but at a more reasonable price?

Looks nice but have you really tested yours? I plow a lot and always seem to burn up the solenoid switch or winch itself but this looks pretty nice maybe I will give it a try.

Go to Tractor Supply or Rural King and buy a winch. They are tuff and are affordable. Here is the link for Tracto Supply ,Champion Power Equipment™ 4500 lb. Pulling Capacity Winch - 1830254 | Tractor Supply Company

Here is the link for Rural King,

I own the Grip winch pictured. It is a hundred times better than my 2500 lbs warn winch was.

I dont know how good they are but northern tool I think they are called was selling some with wireless remote for under a hundred bucks. A buddy of mine got one to winch a modlite car on his trailer and as far as I know it did the trick,I have a cabellas 1500 it pulls my Eiger out and works my plow but brake drifts a little.I couldnt tell you the price it came on my quad

I got the 3000lb Champion from Tractor Suppy for 100.00 bucks (it was on sale) It works great. This weekend I had to pull a neighbors Kawaski up and over and through - It pulled him and a dogwood about 30 feet straight up and over some rough terrain. She grunted but she didnt stop pullin. I was very impressed. I've used it very little since I got it but It's hard to get my Eiger stuck where I ride. It goes just about anywhere I want. I would recommend the Champion. 4 sure.
