Here's where my Smitty XRC8 lives.
I bought it new and it also worked great for 2 years.......and then died.
I replaced it with a used Warn I bought from a friend in my 4x4 club. The used Warn outperforms the Smitty (even when it was new) in so many ways. Speed, quietness, less battery draw, easy freespooling, etc.
Whatever used winch that you buy, make sure you see it work first.
If you don't want to bother seeing it work, I'll sell you the one in the picture.
