I think you should go with a German wench.

You asked for a wench. I suggested.

Easy Guys,

Viper seems to be the best bang for the buck, rarely hear anything bad about them. LOTS of satisfied owners with that winch, both the max and the elite are fine choices. My personal favorite is the Warn ProVantage BUT its hella spendy.

theatvsuperstore.com or else ebay seem to have the best prices on the Viper. Thor is the owner of the atvsuperstore and a fellow member on here, he could help ya out if you decide its the winch for you!

Well that escalated quickly... Personally I've had great luck with the Polaris 2500 HD winch, i haven't had a problem with mine and i plow with it and use it constantly in the summer to get out of the bog/mud. Has always had more then enough power. Warn makes them. I would recommend highly!

I also have a Polaris 2500 winch and it seems to be holding up pretty good. I will be replacing my winch cable soon. Hopefully this weekend.

I just installed a Superwinch LT3000, so far I like it and it was priced right. Around $125 for the kit on Amazon. We will see how it holds up...

I have a 3500lbs Superwinch with the rope verses the steel cable. I was looking for a winch with sealed components, the SW has been a good choice. Good luck!

Thanks, unfortunately the downfall to this particular Superwinch that I bought, you have to use cable, it says that you should not use synthetic rope in the manual.

I also have the Superwinch. I bought the Terra 3500. I went with synthetic as well. Don't recall if it said in the manual to only use wire rope.
I also can't think of a reason that you can only use wire rope on an ATV winch. Synthetic would just be easier on everything. That's just my opinion.
Besides, the wire rope that came with my winch bent the chrome cross bars after the first pull. I went to synthetic immediately and i won't go back.

If (I'm sure more like when) I have issues, I will try synthetic. What I read on their website is that any winch with an aluminum drum shouldn't use synthetic. This particular model has an aluminum drum.

My manual gives instruction for installing synthetic.
I guess i would never have thought that you shouldn't put synthetic on in certain situations...kind of interesting.

+1 for the harbor freight badlands 3000# winch. It's about $100 bucks and hasn't let me down after a year of service and when it does I can just grab another.
