Is tabor made by warn? Is it warn quality?
I got to see one in action recently...
TARussell had his '02 Dodge CTD mildly stuck on a hill and we tried a Tabor 8k or 9k (can't remember which) and it could hardly pull it. Another friend with a Warn 9500 stepped up and easily pulled it out.
You get what you pay for.
Good to know. Milemarker might be better in this case from costco for 250 less.
Milemarkers aren't very good winches either. If I was going to buy a cheap winch it would be a Ramsey or a lowend Warn. I have seen both Warns and Ramsey's in action and they both do well. You do get what you pay for though. If you are willing to spend the money a Warn 9500 is a damn good winch. They pull fast and they pull very hard. I have seen a fair amount of winches in action over the last several years and I am very impressed with the Warn 9500's and the Ramsey Patroit 9500 that I have seen in action. My buddies in AZ test these winches alot and they always work well and always come back for more.
For a budget winch I have been very impressed with the performance of the cheapy Ramsey 8500. A buddy of mine has one on his truggy and it has always performed well enough to get him out of where he was stuck.
my tabor 12000 seems to be doing well. have no complaints about it at all.
