Thats the big difference, the 3k is sealed. The 2.5 works great though. After every ride just run the cable compltely out and then back in. This allows you to clean the cable, and warm the motor up to dry it out. If money was not an issue I would get the 3k though.
Also look into the Ramsey winches. they pull slower but draw less amps. Mile Marker now makes ATV winches now and they are fairlly cheap too.
Thanks, for the feedback. I order both the foreman 500 ES and the WARN 3000lb winch today I will pick it up on Saturday. I believe I paid to much for the winch @ $549.00 installed at the dealer : I defended it in my mine by having them install the winch?
No, Its a good wich. I would recomend running the winch cable in and out after each ride when the wich gets wet. The will warm up the motor and dry the internals. I had mine for 1.5 years and it was dunked under water almost every ride. I had to dissasemble it once because the motor froze up. I greased everything, reassembled and was good to go.

Hey. I have a 2014 foreman (the first year with push button 4x4). I pushed the button to engage the 4 wheel drive and it won’t do anything. It worked great last time we went riding. Any idea what could be wrong? Never known of these bikes having this problem
I’ve got 2004 foreman Rubicon that will not move forward or reverse. It shows no codes and doesn’t have anything blinking on display. Show the normal N, D, R and 1,2,3,4,5. Any help or suggestions please and thanks
