I have a Venom 3500# winch. These winches aren't talked about much but its made by a couple guys that used to work for moto-alliance or Viper. I have had mine for three years now on two atvs and its as solid as you can get and a great buy. You can find them on E Bay and they make model specific packages and come with a KFI mount. When I bought mine it was 189.00 and had the winch saver rubber stopper includedJust got an Ace 570. Trying to decide on make of winch and mount. also what size??
Stubby, if you could keep Duane on all four wheels, your winch will last a lot longer...lolI have a 3000 lb Viper on my machine, and believe me it has really been used. It works just great, and the only problem I have had with it, was a ground wire on the contactor vibrated loose. After I found the problem it was a simple fix. I would certainly buy another Viper winch if I needed one.
I have a 4000 lb smitty winch and for 200 bucks you can't go wrong . I opened up the motor after a year to check it out and it looked new . No water got in , I'm very impressed . Not bad for China built , and that don't happen often

......On one hand, there are products built to the exacting specifications of companies who value their brand and reputation thus imposing high quality control standards.
......On the other hand some companies are aiming to hit a price point with low end materials and manufacturing standards who deliver goods for those who can accept a lower standard of quality.
I purchase both kinds depending on the application after weighing the acceptable amount of slop.
I like to think Smitty builds the former.
I was told that 4wheelParts owns SmittyBilt.
Where can you get a Polaris 3500# winch and mount for less than $200.00? Then you will also have some Chinese junk, because they aren't made by Warn anymore. We all talk about the products you mentioned because we know they are good products and work, and also know Polaris products are usually overpriced Chinese crap. That answer your curiosity? Good luck to youCurious as to all the interest in KFI or EMP mounts and Viper or Warn winches. All good products, yes, but the same money you can get the Polaris 3500lb winch w/synthetic and the right mount. All made for your machine. What am I missing?
