Ramsey or Warn??

I'm going to buy a winch and am looking at Warn or Ramsey. Is there much difference between the two or are they both good?

Re: Ramsey or Warn??

You're going to get a 75+% answer of warn.

The Ramsey PTO winches are stronger than dirt. They'll pull a cable-breaking load all day and all night.

Re: Ramsey or Warn??

I was assuming the he was asking about electric winches that almost everyone buys and not the small percentage of PTO and hydrolic ones that are available.

I have a Ramsey and haven't had any problems with it and it's saved my a%$ many times. If 75% of the board likes Warns whats the downside of the Ramseys?

Re: Ramsey or Warn??

For a self recovery winch, I would take an electric over a hydraulic or PTO, any day of the week.
That being said, I have seen a dozen or more busted or failed Ramsey winches, I have only seen 2 Warns fail.
I would opt for the Warn 8274, over any Ramsey product.

Re: Ramsey or Warn??

I personally have seen 2 ramsey's fail and no warns. I also think that on a pound for pound rating a warn will win hands down by a large margin from what I've seen myself. But on the question of percentage that you asked.............
Tis question has been on the board plenty of times over the years and thats about the ratio I always see.
I have nothing against ramsey (and all of my winches at work are ramseys), but if you can afford the difference I would buy a warn. Also if it wasn't for US Winch ramsey wouldn't have any customer service at all. They are the company to deal with if you ever have a problem with your ramsey winch..........cause ramsey itself is useless if you ever need a part.

Re: Ramsey or Warn??

I've sold Ramsey and own a Warn. I would say you cant go wrong with either. Buy whichever you can get a better deal on. If you want something that will out pull either of them, get a Mile Marker hydraulic.
