Comments about WarnM8274-50 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 WarnM8274-50 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

Comments about WarnM8274-50 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
