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!

    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.
