    Does anyone have any experience with the brand 'Superwinch'?
    Princess Auto has a 9000 lbs 12v on sale for 777.77$. I know, a Warn 8274 is the only way to fly..but new they are what 2k? and used for around 500 usually. So, 777 for this sounds decent.

    I'll run thru the listed pro's from the add:
    circuit breaker protected
    mechanical and dynamic brake
    power load in and out
    integrated sealed contacts
    all metal 3 stage planetary gear box
    15' handheld remote
    freewheel
    125' 21/64" dia wire rope with thimble and latch hook
    includes roller fairlead and pulley block.

    Model EPi, 9000 lbs rated line pull, 4.6 hp motor, 33 amp no load draw, no load line speed 47.1 FPM.

    regular price is 1049$

    I don't know, Jeff...might be good for a few pulls. Okay, maybe just one if it's Deny's pig stuck axle deep in sticky northern mud. :D

    Whats wrong with your PTO? Why are you switching. If you want something cheap for a couple years buy the Costco winch for $444 I've seen it in use. Its actually pretty good. Otherwise like you said save up for a 8274. If you don't want to convert to 12v then get a MileMarker Hydraulic off your powersteering.

    Maybe Ham thought I was the one thinking about buying a winch. Ham...I'm keeping my PTO. Works well (I used it this past weekend to get out of a jam), and it's already on the truck. :)
