The first thing that truly tested my Warn RT30 was an old 5 in 1/2 thick steel pipe that was a clothes line pole that was about 5 ft deep. My dad's Warn 2500 stripped the plastic gears so he called me. With my first pull it went twice as far as my dad's did. After repositioning my hook and using a piece of wood as a pivot point(to help pull it up and out), it sucked it right outta there. Before that day, my Dad was saying I was wasting money on a winch that big and didn't need all that metal gears and sealed housing crap. Changed his mind in an instant. Now his winch is crap and mine didn't even slow very much. A true testament to metal gears. Got mine for $360 for the winch with free shipping from allterrainonline.com . Great company and fast shipping(FedEx).

Not the deepest but the latest!
I how have 2 snach blocks, now its possibaly a 9000 lbs winch, or would it be 12,000? If I have enough rope that is.

I know I could have gotten out of it but I'm not one to romp on it until I'm out. I have a winch so I use it, why break things when I dont have to?

I think I read something on here where someone was talking about recalls on some warn winches? Maybe yours is one of those! You may can check into it and get it replaced. Everything helps....

I dont know anything about it really. It did not say it was sealed but I have had it in water a few times with no problems. I sealed up the connector box, but as for the winch I dont know.

RULE 3300 That is the best most waren dealers can get them. I had my bike and two others hooked to mine and winched us out it took three hours and bent the frame. If it can do that and bend the frame that means that it is no TOY it is the real deal. STEAL GEARS.
