12,500lbs winch w/ 3yr warranty for $375 wtf!?!?

12000 - 12500 pound winch

Anyone heard of this brand?

Stats:
12,500lbs rating
Series wound motor (wtf? for this price?)
6.65hp motor
88ft. of line
Auto-brake in drum
Weighs +/- 100lbs
Free snatch block, roller fairlead, and winch cover.

All sounds too good to be true but then they throw in the THREE YEAR WARRANTY?


Wtf...

Caveat Emptor! It's probably made by the Happy Fun Times Winch Company with instructions and packaging that will show up on Engrish.com here soon.

This exact winch Retails for over $800 In the USA - WHY PAY FULL RETAIL WHEN YOU CAN PURCHASE IMPORTER DIRECT.
that is a sneaky way of saying that it is a chinese piece of sh!t. the only reason why they offer a 3 year warranty is b/c it takes that long to get the parts. seriously thought, i know with the harbor freight garbage, their stuff comes with a warranty, but labor is usually not covered only parts and the parts take months to get. buyer beware.

Well in other news I just read that the XRC8 and XRC10 winches now come with series wound motors and got some pretty impressive reviews

you know all the other brands for way cheaper are making it hard for me to stick to my guns and get a warn. Especially considering my Winch's primary job will be appearance enhancement.

I'm sure its a few months away anyways, so I guess I won't flood my brain with Winches just yet.

You said what most of us won't admit, but is so true.

I've given up on compensation. I just call it how I see it.

The only reason I'd need a winch is to drag a tree back to the camp site for fire wood.
