The google reviews are going to be based on the old winches pretty much. I see no reason to buy a winch with a 90 day warranty when you can get one with a lifetime warranty for close to same price or even cheaper. Without getting into a USA vs import debate... Engo, Smittybilt and other budget winches all come with a standard one year electrical/lifetime mechanical warranty (same as Warn). If you want longer than 90 days on a HF winch, you have to pay extra.

Say you want to chance it and not buy the extended warranty. Even if the newer HF winches are faster than the old ones, they still aren't as fast as Smitty, MileMarker, Engo, etc which are all in the $300 or less catagory.

check the link its the new style bad land winch not the old different wound one, im not looking to buy one at the moment but I am just asking if anyone has used one and has an opinion if you say china junk, dont watch tv unless its an antique zenith or its foreign junk. I am a union member and just asking if anyone has anopinion other than my usual america or bust one. is that so hard?

You get what you pay for....sometimes the cheap ends up expensive cause the cheap product might not work like you wanted and you end up buying the well known brand

watching this thread

good info, of course there will be more that fail out of the box but if it works a few times and saves you you can't go wrong.
