Have this hooked up in my fathers workshop powered by a car battery charged by HF solar charger. He uses it to switch out a power saw and planer on a tool stand.

The way to look at this thing is two things:

No way you can get more winch for the money, not for less than $75 on sale.
The winch itself is sturdy and the only way it could be better is to include more cable. Paint it if you don't like camo.

The remote control system, however, is a piece of junk. It only "pulses" on and off to the winch which gives it a stutter type retrieve instead of a smooth on/off.

The way to remedy this is to wire in an on/off switch, which is pretty simple since it already has built in relays. You can get the switches from Warn, Ramsey etc or you can fab up your own mount.

I installed this winch on a Yamaha Rhino, so I know it'll pull any ATV on the market since the Rhino weighs almost 1200lbs. You should double your actual vehicle weight when choosing a winch.
