No problems with any of them. They are all over 3 years old. My winches get a workout, especially pulling trap anchors. Sometimes the back wheels of the quad are 6 inches off the ground before the cable stakes break loose. And that's with me on the quad. They have a good wire rope, and freewheel easily. Two of the quads have a snowplow, and the winch is used for the lift. I've had to whack off the last 2 feet of cable on spool nearest the hook as the constant flexing from raising and lowering the winch wears the cable after a couple seasons. Just have to refasten the hook.They came with a remote switch, but ive never used them. Make sure when you wire them up that you get your 12 volts from somewhere that's only energized when the key is on. On my Suzukis, I used the circuit that energized a 12 volt auxiliary plug. I wouldn't own a quad without a winch.
