I am debating between a Cabela's Trail Tamer 2300 (made by Superwinch) or a Warn 2.5. The Warn is about $70 more and it appears the features are the same. Which one do you recommend? Are there any others that you would choose from?
I have a 2000# Superwinch and it just does not have the ass to move the rinny in a good stuck situation. Spend the extra bucks and get a Warn.......You'll save more in the long run because you won't have to buy another winch like I need to do now. Don't get me wrong, it works, but it's not a WARN.
trouble is bringing the camera into where we ride... Im going to buy a low end digital to take with me into the bush...
photo posting spree... yeah... trying to increase the moral in here from, just a forum, to somthing more along the lines of, " a bunch of guys *we* know " of course most of us may never meet one another, but it helps to some degree of camaraderie...
Thanks for the advice guys. I think I will get a Warn. I am leaning towards the 2.5 since everyone says that will do me more than good enough. Cabela's has the 2.5 for $340 and the 3.0 for $450. Does anyone know where I can find one cheaper than Cabelas?
I've had the Warn 2.5 for a year. It has plenty of power, I pull out Yamahas and Polaris' all the time. I have the Warn multi-mount, but took it off the front because it stuck out too far and didn't work well with my plow. I have the remote activation switch (on a 10ft tether) which is nice sometimes, but a pain for plowing and general use, so I am connecting a standard handle bar switch in parallel. The only problem I've had is the contactor quit working at a very inopportune time. After I got home, I disconnected the winch from the contactor, and actuated the contactor about 50 times with no load. Then when I re-connected the winch it worked fine. I think the contacts were just carboned up and working it under no load beat them back into submission.
I had to chime in here and give my props to the Warn also. Everyone I know who doesn't have a Warn regrets it. I also have the 2.5 and it has been good enough to pull myself or anybody else out of whatever we've been in.
On another note, I wanted to include a picture of the shelter our ATV club is in the process of building. The picture shows a table we made out of two large rocks, a fire pit, and the slab for the soon-to-be-built shelter. I like the idea of this place being just a bunch of guys talkin' trash and sharing info all the comraderie BS like mudchucker said. How many guys belong to a club or association??
