I actually got to use my winch twice in one day to pull out two very different rigs. A short tug on a 40 and a little longer pull on an 80 with the line doubled and a snatch block. The old 8274 earned its keep.
I think it has a bad connection inside the black box where the controller plugs in. I had to manually spool in the last few feet!?
I was out behind our house following some 4wheeler trails, and they suddenly ended, i kept going for a few yards just to see and ended up in the creek/ditch thing, tried to get out on my own and couldnt so i started making some phone calls to get someone to come give me a tug...
only damage is 2 small dents in drivers side door and the driverside bumperette thing got pushed into the body causing it to bend back, after the mount for the bumperette broke.
