    OK I found this Mile Marker Winch it is new and was wondering what you all thought of them and if anyone had used one. I only plan on it as a carry on when I go out west next year. I am not into mudding or rock crawling. What is a fair price to pay for it.

    Run quik, its the biggest POS ever, save you money and get a Warn or Ramsey. I do have the MM E12,000 setup on the back of my truck, I have maybe used it 10 times most and have gone through 2 motors. It is also very slow.

    I agree.... MM is cheap Chinese crap

    I've got an old Warn 8274 I picked up for $75 and it's been great (except for not having the oomph to pull my 6,000lb truck out of this while not doubled-up:

    I know the MM electrics are Chinese rubbish, but are their hydraulic winches made in the US, or are they Chinese as well?

    Mu initial impressions were not good. It is a cheap product. Here are some details of my (an many other people's) experiences:

    http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/showthread.php?t=312979

    Knock on wood, but it has not given me any problems in the last year and a half or so. I don't use it a lot, but it has worked when needed...like when my junk was lying on it's side in a narrow ravine. The single biggest problem is not having enough room on the drum for all of the cable. A guy in my club whacked 35' or 40' of the cable off, and it looks like it would work much better for angles pulls.

    I dont know about the electrics, but i have a hyrdro 12000 and its been a beast. Its defianetly slow but it pulls like a champ and never gets hot and shut downs. It was on my tahoe at first(7000 pounds and 35's) and i dont think it ever strained pulling my out, single line pull. It drug the truck like a toy many times pulling other people out. I had to have custom fittings made and sent to me, everything came out of florida so i dont think its made in china...atleast the hydros.

    Does it say "Made in USA" on the winch?
