I have a 9,000lb Warne on my Prado and use it six or more times a year to get our caravan out of its bedroom. I have used it twice in anger in two years. It has always worked perfectly except for once when my vehicle was better anchored to the world than my anchor point.

I can't comment on any other brand.

Been mostly bullet proof on my 07 Rodeo

Used it a few times in anger.

Have not been able to put it out of gear for a while though so have to run it out on power.

Too slack to take it out and free it up :-)

Cheers Tony

I have an XDC 9000 on my 90 Prado, yet to use it in anger, have strained many fencelines and removed stumps with ease. Found Warn USA very accommodating to my many queries prior to purchase from ARB. There are probably some less expensive comparable brands available out there, but which ones?

If you want more details mail me direct:-

i was going to buy the warn 9.5XP.
untill i read the test comparo with 4wdaction.
bought a premier instead, it trumped warn and the others in all fields.
warn used the most current, pulled the slowest compared to premier though.

used it pulling privet out, which has roots going to china, pulled myself out of getting stuck many times, countless other stuff over the years.
its due for a service, drum brake got stuck once, hmm probably because i overloaded the winch.

loove it, 1500ish dollars, compared to 2300 or soo for a warn 9.5XP
handpiece is 5mtrs and great, accidentaly drove over the cable, on my driveway, got SERIOUSLY BOGGED. got it fixed.

We put a repco 12,000 pnd on our 80 series for our trip. I couldn't justify the money warn wanted. I paid around $600 dollars for it. I used it several times on our trip including pulling the cruiser and trailer up Gunshot. Never had a problem with it. I ran the cable out and back in under gentle load every 2 months if it hadn't been used. What was interesting was my mate had a warn and everything was the same. All the bolts were the same and it even had the holes for the rivets were the warn badge went...go figure. I would go another one any day.
