I have not heard any bad things about them, but if you look on 99% of all trail rigs you will see the Warn 8274. for a reason. :bow:
Best winch money can buy.

My buddy bought one of the $400 electric milemarkers....IMO, it's nice for the price, but it's pathetically slow....even unloaded. Great for occasional/rare use, but if you need it 3-4 times a day (like me) then you'll despise it quickly. He's already planning something on the front of the rig to "figure 8" the cable rather than respool every time.

I run the 8274-50 with poly rope and absolutely love it. Prior to that, I ran a 1974 Warn Bellevue (the great-granddaddy of the 8274) Another great winch.

one more...the 8274-50 is $1000-1200 plus another $200 for poly rope and another $40 or so for a alum hawse fairlead.

Price is definitely right on the Milemarker, the performance wouldn't cut it for me.
