A lot of Winch for the money

Comments about WarnVR12000 Winch:

I replaced a failed Smittybilt with this Warn unit. Looks like much better quality for a small step-up in price. Comes with a different remote than in picture. I only use winch maybe 5-7 times a year, this one works great out of the box, only time will tell about longevity, the Smitty XRC lasted barely two years and failed leaving me stranded. I have heard nothing but good about Warn


nice winch

Comments about WarnVR12000 Winch:

I ended up buying a VR12,000 winch a few years ago & just now really tested it to see what it got... My brother got his 30,000Lb 75 foot boom truck stuck with 8,000Lbs of wood chips in the rear box. The truck got stuck in 6 to 8 inchs of slick *** red Georgia clay... It took about 45 mins or so to get it pulled to where the truck finally started getting grip. The pull was around 70 foot in length
