The budget always dictates your choices. The warranty will dictate the purchase. I saw the add and it had me thinking too and then my pending unemployment gets the best of my need for winch.

If it is made in the same country as most it can't be that bad and should be a good winch. Many I wheel with have them and no issues yet. It all depends on how much use it will see and maybe the one time you use it it will probably pay for itself.
