Pierce Winch - Heard of it?

Anybody ever heard of a Pierce Winch? It looks a little like an 8274, but I haven't ever seen one around.

Yep. Good heavy duty winch. Same as a Braden I think. They are more popular with the import crowd, Mogs, Pinagauers, etc.

Re: Pierce Winch - Heard of it?

Looks like a great winch for the money. Anyone have any long-term experiance? How well do they hold up? That 12,500lb unit isnt much more, and I always wanted to be able to lift my Jeep off the ground using a strong tree branch! [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Re: Pierce Winch - Heard of it?

I'v had my Pierce winch on the jeep for years with no problems. Funny you should say something about lifting your jeep off the ground using a tree branch because thats exactly what I did with mine when I first got it. Its heavy duty and has never let me down. With the snatch block I can winch about anything. Texas made too I believe.
