    Hydrolic are slow as christmas and if your engine does not run it wont run. I have the HS9500i and absolutly LOVE IT.

    Works like a champ.

    Can't say I own one (yet) but if you do a search you will find WARN is the most respected and trusted winch manufacturer out there. Knowing their quality and how they run their manufacturing operations (located here in the Portland area) they really seem to have their reputation from building quality.

    I have a milemarker 10,500 lb. 2 speed winch and it works great. It is also waterproof and works even if submerged. You also don't have to have extra batteries or a bigger alternator. It will also pull continuously without overheating and melting any wiring. Most people that bad mouth hydraulic winches are those that have never had one. Been there done that.

    An extra battery has MANY uses so I would recomend having one even if you don't have a winch or are going with hydrolic flavor!! A dead batt. with no one around for a jump is a definite show stoper!!

    What about the waterproof engine to turn the power steering pump.
    No pump no whinch.

    Same engine turns same alternator. I'm not disagreeing which is better but I prefer my hydraulic and I have had both. Alot depends on what type of 4 wheeling you do.

    see my post in the Ramsey winch listing, it should still be on the front page.
    if your engine stalls for any reason with a hydraulic winch you're outta luck.
