Hi, I've posted this question on another list and have receievd few responses so I'll diversify. Has anyone heard of or had any experiences with this brand of winch? Electric 9000lb $1500 incl gst is about $500 cheaper than the equivalant size in Warn.

Rob,I have not heard of this brand before. Who supplies it? What is the warranty is usually a good question. Are you looking at a specific application or just the general ability to winch out of situtations?David

I've not heard of it either, that the reason for the post. 4wd warehouses (TJM??) supply it. It appears in a full size ad in 4x4 Australia. $1399 special price, normal $1599.12months limited warranty,whatever that means. Given that I'm in the market for a winch, I would prefer a hydraulic but not running off the steering system, this unit appears reasonably priced however not all that glitters is gold. Anyone with any more info???? Cheers Rob

I have heard of them! There is a 12,000lb model winch on the rear off a timber jinker at work used for hauling the trailer wheels up and I'm sure it is a Premier brand and what's more I'm sure it 's made by Ramsey. I could be wrong but I doubt it. Thought I was wrong once, but I was mistaken!!! Anyway, enough of the humour, back to the point. I put a new cable on it last week. It's been on the truck for 8 or 9 years and never given any trouble. I could check it out a bit more thoroughly next time the truck is back in the workshop if you like. I have a Superwinch on my 80. Bought it 3 years ago from a Toyota dealer. It's been OK. Much cheaper than the equivalent Warn winch but retreival speed is a bit slower. The warn has approx 156:1 reduction and the Superwinch is around 253:1. But if you're stuck, you won't be in that much of a hurry that an extra minute will make any difference. The price was about $1300 or so and I beleive it is still the same. Check them out at your local Toyota dealer. You might also check out your local 'saw mill supplies' shop for other winch brands. Could be cheaper than a 4x4 shop. I ordered a cable for my Superwinch from a logging supply shop and it was a quarter of the cost of the SAME cable from a 4x4 shop!
