Harbour Freight 8k winch , 299 sale again!!!!

It's back and badddder than ever! 299 winch special.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...category=11767

I've seen this winch at harbour freight, it's rather large!

Cool thing, freight is 6 dollars [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHH!! Just found out too:

Sweet, GRABB'EM while they're hot!

I might just pick up one of these, the comealong is kind of cumbersome.

Re: Harbour Freight 8k winch , 299 sale again!!!!

Well, I bought one. 305 shipped to my door. The coupon is only valid for walkins to the retail store, I figured using the online system I'll save 7% because of no tax, ie ~~20 dollars ish.

I've got to get by arse into gear and get LOTS of stuff up on ebay, I'm running out of $$$!!

I'll be using this with a 2" receiver for the front and rear, I'm not sure what I'm going to do about the power issue (run power on the frame switched, or run super heavy cables that are removeable).

A real winch, finally!

You'll be saving lots of money on a health club membership by having to tote this thing from the front to the back of your rig. I have one of these winches and it's fargin HEAVY!

Lol! Seems I can toss that winch mounting plate and go with a 2" receiver mounting system.

Wonder if I should have backup chains to the front and rear bumper (in addition to the 2" reveiver tube) for safety's sake.

Who on this board actually has one of these that they've used and how well did they perform?

Re: Harbour Freight 8k winch , 299 sale again!!!!

How do you like the winch? I went wheeling in a nasty hole that's notorious for swallowing the zook, yep, did it again. I spent a good part of 1 1/2 hours winching with a comealong.. Can't wait for the new toy [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Re: Harbour Freight 8k winch , 299 sale again!!!!

Any of you guys used this winch? I know some of the chicago electric power tools are Super Crappy and cheapo, I am in the market for a budget winch and this one looks good. I would love to get some more info on it.
