You should be able to mount just about any "ATV" sized winch.

I heard that some ATV sized winches could require some sort of body or frame mods to make proper fit,, wasn't sure, thanks..

I'd personally buy a brand that also fabricated a winch mount for your machine..... than you shouldn't have any problems!! If your concerned.... after you have a model chosen, call the manufacturer or distributor and ask. Knowing is half the battle!!

Badlands 3000# winch from Harbor Freight has some pretty good reviews for a little over $100 bucks. Just have to buy the mounting plate and install it. Just scroll down in this performance section and read all about it.

I have put Promark Offroad winches on all my machines over the past years. No failures and very well priced. The mounting plate comes with it.
