ATV Winches Discussed
More Articles

There are many types of winches to get for workhorse type ATVs and it is not easy to choose from all the various options. Even the price is not a dead give away, because some of the high priced models are barely better than some of the most inexpensive common equipment models. For instance take the Warn Winch for a retail of around $375.00 and a 2500 lb. Rating it seems to work just as good as any of the Mile Marker units even though they are said to be built to military standards.

Both Suzuki and Polaris standard winches are very good for their workhorse series ATVs although they are pricey if you consider the cost to buy separately or to add on later rather. Of course both companies will finance them for $49 to $59 per month. Like you need any more payments you are thinking. Of course a good winch can pay for its self quickly if you get into a rather unnerving situation, which any real ATV rider who really uses it has and will.

Ramsey Winch makes a pretty good unit as well and they have a wireless operated unit which can come in handy, with faster line speed and it appears draw slightly less amps too. Still not the cheapest unit on the market by any means and then before we worry about the amps needed, we might consider the power needed.

A 2500 lb winch may not be enough if you are stuck in the mud and need to move a lot of debris, but a higher rated winch may use more power and drain the battery faster if you are completely stuck.
