Saw this on Reddit today - couldn't find any more details on specs, pricing, etc. but looks like it should be in stores soon. Finally has synthetic line!

Depending on final pricing and a 20% off coupon, this may be a nice pickup.

I know HF doesn't always have the best rep, but usually their bag for the buck is great.

Can't wait to see some reviews / comparisons.

Whoa nelly! I'd love me a Zeon or other high dollar winch but I don't do a lot of winching. This could fit the bill more than nicely for someone who doesn't expect to be climbing the Rubicon trail tomorrow...

My 3 year old 9K Badlands winch doesn't owe me anything. I would be interested in seeing what the line speed of that new HF winch is. Mine is slower than frozen molasses.

Harbor Freight has been stepping up their game lately. I have several of the new brands and they are actually quality stuff. The Vulcan welder is right there with a Hobart or Esab, The Earthquake impact gun is better than my buddy's Snap On for torque, The Quinn 1/2" metric sockets are really nice and have better tolerances than the Pittsburgh stuff. The US General tool box combinations are really nice too.

Someone who apparently works at HF shared some info on the suspected pricing...


$699


I think it'll be a hard sell at that price, considering you can get Quadratec, Warn VR, Smittybilt, etc. for similar price if not cheaper. Still looks nice though lol

20% off of that though since you can get the coupon literally anytime you want online. lol
Thats still only going to bring it down to 560 plus tax. There are a lot of hard working, proven winches at or under that price point that I'd consider before this guy.

Quadratec's 12K synthetic rope winch runs $699.99

https://www.quadratec.com/p/quadratec/q-performance-stealth-winch/12000lb-synthetic-rope

The Warn version is $849.99

https://www.quadratec.com/p/warn/vr-evo-series-winch/12000lb-synthetic-rope

The Smittybilt 10K version is $652.99

https://www.quadratec.com/p/smittybilt/x2o-10-gen2-winch-synthetic-98510

I'd agree - HF will have to beat those prices considerably if they want me to take their winch seriously. And then I want to put a coupon on it and get another 20% off!

They'll likely exlcuude this from the 20% off. I wouldn't count on it.

But, I guess we'll see.
