Of course...they want to sell you THEIR brand. Polaris doesn't make winches guys. Warn makes winches FOR Polaris. Using Polaris specs. For a couple of years Polaris had Chinese made winches that were junk! No parts if it broke. Take it back and get a new one. The Polaris winches work,but they don't have some of the things Warn has stock. Like the internal brake. I got this from a guy who services winches. A lot depends on what year it is.

2500 polaris winch wont spool out.

Then I found a note in the instruction booklet that says if you are installing in a "non" XP, you have to contact your dealer for instruction. Mine is a 2017 Sportsman 850 SP. What gives??

I won't say they're junk, because they're super easy to repair with great parts diagrams, but the drum assembly is aluminum and prone to cracking or breaking. Good heatsink, bad strength.

I use Superwinch and Milemarker almost exclusively; Terra 35S, Terra 45S, Tigershark 9500S, and an EP9500, also with synthetic line.
