Convenient, compact and light weight it does the job. Only issue is it does a "safe" version of the job with a built in clutch when it reaches its max capacity and does not allow you to push it further if needed for obvious safety reasons.
Expected it to easily pull a project car onto a flatbed trailer, but it struggled. Had to use the old manual come along to get the vehicle up the ramps which were not steep at all. once on a flat surface it pulled easily. Keeping for convenience and light pulls, but be aware this is not a replacement for the real-deal equipment such as fixed winch, manual winch, etc.

5.0Gotta get this winch
I use this winch for pulling furnaces and coils up into attic spaces. Eliminates the need for a helper and saves my back...much safer too and with the free wheeling pay out clutch disengagement it is a breeze to rig and use. Now I can think of a thousand other uses for it and plan to get a second one.
In 1948, Arthur Warn founded Warn Industries to construct locking hubs for surplus World War II Jeeps. Ten years later, the Warn winch was manufactured to fill the need for a reliable recovery tool to aid off-roaders stuck in challenging situations. Since then, Warn has grown to offer a wide range of gear with the hallmarks of durability and affordability. 1988 spawned the aftermarket industry's first ATV winch and today their PowerSports line of winches ranks among the most esteemed in the industry and jeepers call on Warn for electric, hydraulic and severe duty components that get the job done.
