New Winch?

14 posts in this topic

Ok, I think my Warn winch finally died - it goes out but won't reel in. Any suggestions on a good winch to replace it? Grizzly? SuperWinch?

Check the contactor (looks like a small box with wires and battery cables going to it) Try swapping the 2 heavy battery cables that go to the winch. Now if it goes in but not out that will be the problem. If the winch runs under power it is probably good and may just need a new contactor. I would stay away from Superwinch if you need a new one. Th new Warn sealed winches are hard to beat if you need one.

I have a 2500 lbs warn winch for my kawasaki 650 brute! Bought it this past winter as i had done ALOT of deep snow riding in the woodlands around the new london and brooten area! After riding with people who had winches I decided to get one and it was the best thing I have ever done...haha! I got alot of use out of it pulling myself and others out of DEEP snow cause no snow is deep enough to try going through!! It definetly did the job!

My Warn did the same thing I took it apart and found a stripped sunflower gear. For 28 bucks my winch works good as new. The people at Warn are great to work with, and you can get a parts list online. Just my 2 cents
