Warn Works 1700 Winch

5 posts in this topic

I just bought a used 2005 Yamaha Kodiak 450 and it came with this winch (can be seen on Northern's site). It doesn't appear to be a ATV specific winch, but I would like to use it if I can. Has anyone mounted one of these to their ATV and do you know if the generic winch plate will work with this model. Also do they have any cheaper mount plates than $60!!

It would probly work ok but I dought they are water resistant at all so I dont know how long it would last. Depending how stuck you get 1700 might not be enough anyway. I used to have a 2300# superwinch on my grizzly and it wasnt rare for it to not have enough power. I have a 3000# Warn now and have run into spots where it has problems. I made the mounts for mine. I wouldnt give you $20 for the factory mounts.

Nothing worse than getting yourself into a spot where you need to depend on a cheap winch that gives up on you. Don't waste your time on it. Save your time and money and get a dependable brand name winch that is big enough to get the job done.

I have a 2000lb on my Sportsman and there have been times that I would have like to have a little more. It has always gotten me out when needed but I didn't like how much it seemed to stress it.

I did see a 1700lb in the Menards add that I may pick up but I wouldn't think about putting on on the wheeler. It sure would ruin a day getting stuck in the woods and having the winch [PoorWordUsage] out.

I have a 3000lb on my grizzly, and have had it not be enough to pull me out, or the other wheeler. I guess if you mostly ride on main trails and drive around the mudholes, then I would give it a try, but if you like to see how deep the mudhole is, go as big as you can, because a 1700 lb, wont be enough!

    • Eaves would have been nice, better to the ducks than someone else. They beat us last go around but we were way better and Gibson won the game by himself.

      Edit: Sounds like the 2nd moves to a 1st in the ducks clear the 2nd round of the playoffs. Not sure I would have paid that price.
    • Wow...Ducks get Eaves from Dallas for a conditional 2nd round pick...pretty cheap rental IMO..where were the Wild on this deal...oh ya we don't have a 2nd round pick 
    • Update:     Put some fresh gas in, sprayed the carb valve with some cleaner and cleaned the filter.  Also adjusted the idle speed up a bit. Runs great again!   Thanks for the advice and help everyone! 
    •   Nope...I think that is an original Bear55 Quote but Yogi Berra would be jealous if he were still alive.   Agree on the Blackhawks...when the season ends they will probably be the favorite to win the cup IMO so it will take an upset by any team to knock them off...would love for the Wild to be the ones to do so....it is getting very interesting as the trade deadline and playoffs time approach!
    • Out here (Virginia) our lakes are dirty and warm, and from what I understand, saugeyes thrive in those conditions. Our walleyes are all stocked since very few of our lakes have suitable spawning habitat and there is little to no natural reproduction.   Really looking forward to catching a saugeye just so I can cross it off my list!

    • Funny, that is the same face I get when I think of people voting for a reality tv star in as president. Worse yet he is some kind of billionaire, like the general public should ever trust one of those guys in public office.
    • More like Yogi the Bear but if I stole his quote my apologies.  Have to get that Chicago gorilla off our back, don't care if they win 4 of the next 5 cups, we just need one and I will be a happy camper.

      I'm not liking that they found some decent youth to play with Towes, we need to pounce before they fill in their gaps with depth and scoring again.
    • I am up to 27 in ND so far.  Waiting for more snow to melt.  Cold weather and deep snow makes the deer really group up out here and makes for easy shed hunting, but is really tough on the deer.  The 4th pic is one from some round bales that the deer were destroying earlier this year.   The biggest I find year to year is generally around that mid 60" range.  And I found that one (first pic) in early Janruary.  So hopes of finding a bigger one this year is low haha.
    • The only Merc I saw in Belize was on a parted out boat 75ft from water. Otherwise it was 70% Yammy's, 15% Honda's, 10% Suzzy's and a 5% hodgepodge of Evinrudes, Tohatsu, ect.......
