Doesn't look too bad for the money but I am going to ante up for a name brand. Whenever I try to save a few bucks it always comes back and slaps me in the head down the road. [img]images/graemlins/spank.gif[/img]

I have looked at the harbor frieght, the Chicago Electric, but this one looks fast, its got high HP motor and I love the look and the roller fairlead, I am gonna research it some and maybe get a brand name. I will probably break down and buy a $$$ one but who knows, I am liable to click "buy it now" at any time

Re: Anyone got one of these winches? From Ebay :)

I was offered one here for NZ $1425. I thought hmmmmm not bad But then I looked at another big brand (which I won't say cause I'm not bais [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]) ok NZ $ 200 more , so is $200 to much more to pay for a brand thats still around in years to come for a warranty claim ? I don't think so ! Don't say I didn't WARN [img]images/graemlins/censor.gif[/img] You about it !! [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Anyone got one of these winches? From Ebay :)

I got some more info on the winch (and bought one) The brand of the winch is COME UP Appropriate name dont you think. I got SUPER hung up last night (took 4 Samurai's in tandem to pull me out) I came right home and ordered one. The guy that has the winches on Ebay for sale sent me an test article on the winch, I will try to attach it as it is 4 photos with text, I will let you know how the winch turns out. he emailed me this morning and gave me the shipping # so I liked the quick turn around. If I cant get the photos attached, email me
