im in the market for a winch for my gade...i want to order one soon because i want to integrate it on the bike when i make my bumper...thing is i dont really need one but i want it for peace of mind and i am thinking of getting a plow in the future. how big should i go? i like the superwinch terra 25. also gonna pick up a tree strap and pully to be on the safeside as well...any input or thoughts welsome...dont want to spend a fortune as i dont depend on it and might be used once a year...its like a condom, better to have it and not need it,that to need it and not have it :thumbsmilie:

For the life of me I couldn't get the Terra 25 to fit on our 2012 800 Renegade. I still have it brand new sitting in a box. Ended up going with 2500 warn winch. Little tight but it fit.

I've heard some guys have taken the Terra apart and put back together while on the machine. I've always liked the Superwinch over the Warn. I find it's a little faster.

I felt like a 3k at least was necessary, for me anyways... Renegade is a heavy bike esp with me on it! Up an incline or in a mess (which is most often why youd be winching) is only gonna add to the pull weight. And/or carry a snatch block.

Pretty handy items lol, my 2500lbs Runva came with a snatch block, tree strap, line saver and synthetic rope for $179. Pretty hard to buy a basic Terra 25 from PA for the same price.

Runva winches is much slower then a Terra and I could only get 6 months out of it. Ball bearings inside my Runva all rusted out.

ya i got all the required parts with it ,just no extras, i wanted a viper but with shipping and tax i was into the neighborhood of 330 for a 2500 lb. the oversized gears and lifetime warranty are pretty much what made this descision, not to mention the great price, canadiantire wants that price for a damn champion.

I have been using warn for 13 years now and they have never let me down. I use them under water, in deep slop and to plow with. For this I have become brand loyal and wouldn't use anything else.
