We are paying for their massive advertising campaign. My next winch will either he a Superwinch or a Runva.Warn may be known to be the "best" but you pay WAY to much for a name, and not that much better tech. you can get a winch that will last just as long and cost 1/2 the price.
If it is a new atv, the Polaris winch is a China built unit. Let us know how it performs.Wife has the Polaris 2500, I guess it's a Warn, haven't used it yet. I have a HF Badland 3000, it's been great so far. Used it about 4 times, once to help pull a Ford F350 away from a deck it slid into on ice, strapped my ATV to a tree and between the truck and the winch pulled it right up the hill. I paid $120 including a two year no questions asked replacement warranty. I would only get the 3000lb Badland winch, I've been told the smaller ones aren't waterproof and fail quite often.
I second both these statements. I put the Badlands on my 400 and never looked back. I did get the 2 year warranty also.I have a HF Badland 3000, it's been great so far. I would only get the 3000lb Badland winch, I've been told the smaller ones aren't waterproof and fail quite often.
