    Canadian Tire winch?

    In looking to add a rear winch and there's a good deal on a 4000 lb atv/utv winch at Canadian Tire. I don't see any other brand name associated with it and was wondering if anyone else has tried these before and if it's worth getting?

    I had a 3500 and it was crap, clutch switch broke off first and can't get parts for it, made in China, then the motor quit not LNG after, running the champion winch from canadian tire on both my bikes and they are light years better and usually come on sale cheaper

    for $120 you may as well give it a try, find out about warranty, and where it has to go to get it fixed, etc.

    Re: Canadian Tire winch?

    Puting some piece of crap on for saving a few bucks is idiotic...lmao...
    when you need a winch , you need it .. Not 50 frickin $$.

    There are some great middle $$ winches , for just over 200 ish ...
    Runva
    Super atv
    superwinch
    badlands
    smittybuilt ..etc

    And any of the Warns are overpriced , as well ...,

    But to try and fawk around with warranty and time and effort over a 100$ pos .. Is well just utterly stupid.

    Re: Canadian Tire winch?

    I've pulled with my Canadian Tire 4K rear winch probably 75 times while buried in mud and snow at -20°C and it hasn't given me a lick of trouble. It's actual been much better than the factory Warn front winch that I use far less. Buy it and enjoy it. I had the 3500 prior and I broke it in half on a submersed rock and it cost me almost nothing. (Less than a new belt).

    Re: Canadian Tire winch?

    The 3500 is a POS. Barely sunk rear tires of my ranger, just enough to high centre, front tires spinning on a root. It couldn't pull me out. Thru a snatch block on, still stuck and walking back to camp.

    I wouldn't give them $1 for the 4K either. When ya need a winch, ya need a winch, not something that just looks like one. Then again, if all you do is run a snow blade, giver.
