just scoped out google and found that apparently it only carries a 1 year warranty, and is just a 'budget' line from warn, i would say direct imported from china.

funny too some yanks think the t-max winches are made in australia (we know better, so do our friends in china)

cheap price though

I actually thought that the ARB Magnum winches were renamed Tabor - remember someone at ARB speaking about when the stock of Magnum's ran out the next lot would be badged tabor.

- Generic chinese winch??? - Not so, they are made in the same factory as the Warns - all stamped made in USA - at least my Magnum is marked this way - and has interchangeable parts with the Warns ie., the controller is a warn controller.

...also has a Bosch motor - which I don't reckon you would find on a chinese winch.

fair enough on the magnum, it may have had some assembly in the states, not sure on their labelling laws, but made in australia can mean it was packaged here only.

From the pics i have seen the new one definetly looks chinese, i would guess warn have just done the usual and gone for a higher profit margin with a new line. Only a guess i havent seen one in the flesh yet. so dont shoot me if im wrong, if so ill put my hand up for a spanking.

Tabor is the new name for Magnum and are sold by Warn as a budget alternative to their others.
