Re: Milelmarker or Harborfreight
I have the HF winch and couldn't be happier. I opted for the 2 yr extended warranty and they've really stood behind it. I initially bought it for my car trailer first and my Zuk second and it's worked equally well on both. I'm on my second one now after fraying the cable when I winched a 9,000lb truck with four flat tires up onto my trailer without the ramps AND up an incline in deep mud. The cable rubbed my trailer a bit and when I took it back to HF and explained what happened, they said no problem and replaced it for free. I told them that I might go wheeling with it and what was my recourse if it burned out when winching underwater. The MANAGER just told me to wash all the mud off, let it dry, and bring it in for a free replacement. Like I said, I couldn't be happier(except for if it had a roller fairlead). I've used it probably about 15 times now and never had a problem. With the HF and the extended warranty, I don't see how you could go wrong.
