New Harbor Freight Winch on sale big time...Bring the hate!
Ok, i know that warn and others are better so im already past that. I wanted to let the guys who dont use their winch every day know that harbor freight is having a sale on the 12000LB Badlands winch. It is 399.99 and here is the 20% off coupon that can be used in the store (

and the online coupon is tool20. That is 319.99 for a winch that got a pretty good review here.

same winch...different name.

AND if you live by a HF, get the warranty if you plan to abuse it. They are great about just giving you another whatever you have the warranty on. I left my compressor outside in the rain by mistake and the cutoff valve stuck. Took it in and they replaced it no questions asked.

I know this winch is not for the hate just trying to pass along a good deal.

It would probably work if you are just going to use it once and a while. But if you plan on using it a lot save up the money and get a decent winch. you pay for what you get.

4 wheel drive did a test in there mag and in the article theres didn't even work right out of the box. I wish they would have included smitty in the test but they didnt.

I was in Harbor Freight today to buy a transmission jack and they gave me a 25% off coupon good for the 4th only. That's $300 even for a 12k lb winch. I think I will be getting one in a few days. ;)
