not really, because you're more likely to hear bad news than good, so if htey sucked, you'd hear a s***load of bad news...all i've ever heard is mediocre, bordering on slow, so i'll stick to ramsey or warn.Romer said:Couldn't you say the same thing if they were bad?
Romer said:Per another thread, it doesn't match the Warn specs for pulling power when down to the 4th layer.
Romer, The T-Max will pull you out (on the 1st layer) and then depending upon how "stuck" you are it MAY pull you out on subsequent layers. The drop in pulling power from the 1st to 2nd layer (and then it gets worse) suggests that you would do as well with a good quality 8,000lb. winch. I can appreciate your engineering background as I am a mechanical engineer myself.Romer said:Flintknapper - I am not disagreeing with you that the Warn M12 is superior. I am not sure I agree with you that this winch wouldn't be able to pull me out either. BUT, I am still reseraching it. Those that know me know that I research for a while based on my engineering background. As a manager I also understand we sometimes design, spec and buy Lexus's when a Toyota will do.
Romer said:Ok, I believe that the T-Max would probably work for my situation. However, I know it's a mistake to go agains the advice of this board. I ended up getting the Warn M12. My toy budget is shot for a while. I found a screaming deal at the following web site
I took it to 4wheel parts and they matched it. You can save money by buying it from the link and not having to pay Tax.
