OT: Is harbor freight electric winch any good?
There is a 2500lb winch for $50 tomorrow. This is for the touring.
But if we ever use it for other modern cars. What relatively safe winch poundage strength is good for the average car winch?
I will be buying my first trailer tomorrow, It is a 16' open trailer.
I've got one. It pulls my 27 coupe on my trailer with ease.
I also bought one and gave it a try and it worked just fine so I bought a second one to mount on my open car hauler. I had good reviews but time will tell. Joe
I would like nothing better to bash the chinese junk that comes from HF but in this case they seem to have slipped in a good product. I bought one for my open car trailer ten years ago. It sits 24/7 in all weather mounted to my trailer and still works like it should. Iv pulled some very heavy loads onto my trailer and its never failed to do what I ask it to do.
I bought the 12000 winch from them and it is a brute. I had to rescue my daughter in laws suburban and it pulled it up steep ramps like it was reeling in an empty cable. I would think the 6000 lb would be enough for future needs.
The HF Badland series of winches get rave reviews in a lot of 4x4 magazines.
