Does anyone have any experience with the Harbor Freight Badlander winch's?
I am looking at the 5000 lb. winch for 199.99

thanks in advance for any advice!

I have the 5000 # one and love it it's a tight fit but it works well I put the warranty on it if anything ever happens to it and it was still cheaper than a warn

I have the Warn Pro-Vantage S 4000 and it has saved my ass so many times. I had my side by side buried in the clay, winch totally encased in clay, and it operated fine and pulled me out. When it comes to winches I would spend the couple extra dollars because it could be the difference between making it back to camp, or sitting alone in the dark praying someone drives by. Just my opinion...

Put her to the test today. 5000# yanked it right out. Hopefully I don't have the problem some of the others talked about with the water.
