    Re: Canadian Tire winch?

    I like Warn and Ramsey winches personally, I think you get what you pay for and chinese junk should stay in china.

    Here's what Happy Happy has to say about it on a online review:

    Broken before installation

    The metal frame on this winch is that really soft WHITE METAL with a nice grey paint job over top of it. When installing the main 4 bolts of this winch the first two broken the winch frame. I gave up right away, skipped the last two bolts & returned this as scrap to CT. Do NOT waste your time with this one!!!

    so u have had good luck with it? is it the wide spool winch? for the money and a 1 yr over the counter exchange I may give it a try.

    Re: Canadian Tire winch?

    I definitely need the 4000lb as my commander Max is easily 2000lb when you take into account the add ons and gear. I thought the CT one might be an alright option seeing as its regular price is $300 which is in the same ball park as most the competition. It's not that I only want to spend $120 I just thought it might be a great deal to take advantage of. Numerous bad reviews weigh more heavily than a couple good ones though as I don't really want something I have to hope will be durable and work when I need it.

    And get a snatch block.

    Re: Canadian Tire winch?

    Yup got a snatch block this year when I changed to synthetic line on my factory winch. Haven't had to use it yet but am going to make sure I know wtf I'm doing with it before I actually need it. Most reviews on the CT site for the 4000lb winch are positive. Not so much for the 3000lb. The two bad reviews were the one lilduke posted and another who had it fail the first time used.

    Re: Canadian Tire winch?

    Most of the good reviewers were only using them for a snow plow setup.

    Sure the price is right, but it's just going to end up in a landfill and you're putting an American out of a job and supporting slave labour...lol

    Re: Canadian Tire winch?

    Yeah definitely not using on a plow and don't want to risk it ripping apart on a hard pull. The bad reviews say more than the positives in this case.

    no it is a narrow spool which was part of the attraction for me as it was more poundage and would fit in the factory location so i could keep the pull pt low rather than having to go with an emp style bumper

    Re: Canadian Tire winch?

    ok thanks, good info, I need a wide spool for the mounting setup I have. but it would fit to a mount on the rear of the ranger. and I do see it is a 4000lb winch, thanks to one of the suds buds, guess I did not get that part of the flyer! lol.
