What is the best winch for the price?

Recommended Posts

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,

Grip Tools 3000 lb 12 Volt Electric ATV Winch 28770 America's Farm & Home Store

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.

Anyone have a Smitty Built? I'm told they are a warn copy. My brother bought one for his new machine, we havn't got it mounted yet, so just wondering what to expect. It was like half the price of a warn. Any insight would be great.

      Unfortunately I didn't notice some of the rust hitting the undercarriage of my 2004 Yamaha Grizzly 660, but saw it the other day when I was doing some maintenance, oil change, air filter, spark plug, etc. The left side footrest broke and that's causing the plastic to hit the front wheel. It broke right at the welds from too much rust. Looks to me like what I need is (looked this up on yamahapartshouse.com):
      YAMAHA FOOTREST BOARD 5KM-27481-10 Left side (broken)
      YAMAHA FOOTREST BOARD 5KM-27488-10-00 Right side (rusted and will probably break eventually)

       
      Does anyone have a less expensive source? I did see on ebay a couple of listings but it still comes out to @ $50 each,

      Hi all just started to mount a winch on my kingquad 400 using a kfi mounting plate and the holes don’t line up. The winch is Rhino 3000lb not sure if you have them in the States they’re an Amazon job. I was wondering can I just drill the mount out to make it fit, the holes are fine depth wise it’s just the width trouble is it’s not out a great deal and as the holes are countersunk they will overlap I don’t want a loose winch. Dunno if you can make sense of all that but any help would be appreciated thanks.

      I was looking online and saw some cool lifted ATVs and figured I'd start a topic. Please post if you have pics or if you find some cool lift kit ATV photos or videos online, let's keep the topic going. I just added this one in the gallery but you can just add them in this topic also.

      Hi Folks;
      Has anybody on here installed a winch on a 2003 Magnum 2x4? I am using a Cycle Country adapter plate (only one I could find), but am having a bit of trouble getting it all to fit properly, and am looking for someone that may have done this install and/or may have some pics of the installation.
      Thanks!

      My mother has just developed a fairly serious case of sciatica, which is a condition where you have some serious leg pain as the result of a pinched sciatic nerve. One of the exercises she does in physical therapy is simply the therapist holding onto her foot and pulling away from her hips as she lays on her back on a table. To replicate this exercise at home they have recommended an inversion table (where you turn upside down and hang from your feet), but since she's not too keen on this idea I'm trying to figure out how to replicate this exercise...which is where the idea of a remotely operated winch comes in.
      I don't really have a wide range of knowledge when it comes to what equipment is out there that can help me accomplish this goal, but I'm not too shabby at designing things and since I just installed a superwinch on my grizz this is the first idea I've come up with.
      Basically I'm imagining using some kind of winch whose rope would be worked through a pulley system that would end attached to a shoe which Mom would put on, lie down and use the remote switch to gently stretch the leg.
      - Winch (if an ATV winch) would be powered by a 12v car battery hooked up to a trickle charger
      - Safety mechanisms would include...
      - a light switch dimmer inline between the 12v battery and the winch so speed can be adjusted.
      - possibly using one of those stretchy rubber exercise resistance bands in the line segment to regulate and ease the pulling
      - a remote power cut off switch paired with the remote 'in/out' switch
      Honestly I could just go ahead and make this system myself, and I'm fairly sure it would work, but I thought I'd bounce this idea off a mechanically minded community to see if there are any ideas how I could improve on the design.
      Since I'm only familiar with ATV winches at this point that's what I've imagined using. But if anyone is aware of a 110v based winch that would be more appropriate, that would surely help in simplifying powering the system since it'll be located indoors. Only requirement for the winch would be that it would need both an in and out function operated by a remote switch. And since the winch would only need to pull between 10-20 lbs it wouldn't need to be nearly as beefy as the ATV type.
      Sorry for the long write up here but I'm certainly glad for your time and open to your opinions and suggestions.

      Putting in a SW Terra 35 and I've decided the crimp I'm looking at here isn't something I can reproduce so I need to figure out who to take this wire to get the end put back on after I get it shortened to where I need it. Never having delt with wires this big I have no idea who I could go to just locally to get this done. What kind of (electrical?) business would deal with stuff like this?

      Just got my first ATV, a '11 700 Grizz and planning on doing some trail riding soon. First piece of equipment I'm adding is a winch and I'm needing some suggestions for something that would be good for my kind of riding but comes at a decent price. Usually I try to get quality stuff (Warn) but since I'm needing to conserve denero right now I figure this winch is something that (at least for me) doesn't have to be crazy great/expensive. Although I'd still like to get something that's decent quality and can pull well, in my middle age I hardly think I'll be voluntarily launching into any terrain that has the potential to get me too stuck...thus I doubt I'll be using the winch that often.
      Anybody have a suggestion for a model that's decent quality for around say $300 bucks? Doesn't have to be built to be used time after time but quality does still count.
      Thanks
