Warn Works 1700 Winch

Recommended Posts

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!

    • It might be better to buy a small second unit and link them.    My guess is what you want is not something enough people want to justify implementing.   Personally I have a hard enough time watching a bobber.
    • Welcome to the Forum.  What brand gun is it? Would help to pick choke tubes out.  Size 6 shot should do the trick, but I'm sure more folks will chime in here. 
    • I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option. 
    • I just purchased a used 20 gauge for my 14 year old daughter. I hunt mostly state land for pheasants. It is a 2 3/4 auto with interchangeable chokes. What size steel shot and choke tube would you recomend for her?
    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
