Good luck...................I've used them and they have gotten me out of some jams. It's not like you need it everyday unless you're really into mud and in that case not the winch for you. Just remember to only use it for about 60- 90 seconds at a time. That's plenty to get you unstuck. They tend to get hot rather quickly. Don't forget to get the mounting brackets.

HF stuff I think has generally improved, although I’d be hesitant to try to load a lift or hoist to its full rated capacity. I’d bet it will work, though it might be a bit rougher sounding and maybe not as nicely sealed, but then it is like 1/3 the price of the big brand.

Let us know how it does.

Installed easily. The yellow and blue wires are too short for an ATV rear battery solenoid hook-up but all in all solid deal. Think it'll do what I need. Used a KFI mount.
