I haven't actually used the winch (as a winch) so this rating is strictly concerned with the product right out of the box and installation. I was disappointed to discover that my winch had a rattle in it. It was a loose screw. I couldn't shake it out so I had to remove the cover over the electronics to find a screw within that box. The annoying part is that this screw was fully capable of shorting adjacent studs that are exposed under the cover. Also, it made quite a bit of noise that would have to be ignored during the packaging operation by the handler putting the winch in the box. The other quality issue concerns the ground cable provided. The cable had several kinks in it from having the bend radius exceeded during packaging. The insulation has a lose fit and it felt like the cable was not damaged so I used it. I expected better from this manufacturer.
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.
