The veteran WARN winch still has the fastest no-load line speed (73.4 feet per minute) and the longest rope in the WARN self-recovery lineup (150' of 5/16 wire rope). Because of these impressive stats, the M8274-50 is the preferred winch for off-road challenge events. Its unique spurgear drivetrain and upright design has proven to be reliable, and its braking system delivers smooth operation with excellent heat dissipation. Roller fairlead, remote with 12' lead, free-spool clutch, and battery cables are included.

    Comments about Warn M8274-50 Self-Recovery Winch:

    I had two of this nice winches, with no problems what so ever!. Pulls my 1979 Chevy k-30 out of anything, and drags out anyone stuck! The best I have ever seen.

        Comments about Warn M8274-50 Self-Recovery Winch:

        I just purchased a unit that was manufactured in 1987 and was all original. I opened it up, changed the oil, and reassembled. It operates perfectly so far, and after reading multiple online reviews, forum threads, and winch shoot out articles, it is apparent that this is probably the best winch Warn ever made. Yes, the price is on the high end for similarly spec'd winches, but if I can buy one that is 24 years old and still works like new, you should expect decades of service out of this product.

        Beast

        By JJG

        from Valdez, AK

        Comments about Warn M8274-50 Self-Recovery Winch:

        Mine is an older version of the same model, but this winch is a beast.

        Pulls my jeep out just fine...go figure, but has pulled three trucks at once with no problem.

        Would definently recommend it to anyone
