I have a bouncer.no winch needed.. I would love to try one.way to much coin though.i always wanted a fast and strong winch.the giggle pins are sweet but I hate the 8274, (yea I know you love them jim, tab, dale and every other old coot wheeler out there...) so I would never buy one.this looks very well built.

Now that we've got the obligatory 8274 comments out of the way, that looks like one sweet winch. Erin, you definitely need one.

At first glance it looks like a blower intake.

I haven't owned a 8274 since th 80's.
Does that make me an old coot?

Although I do not mind the group of guys you put me with.
Honored actually.

I am aware of these winches as a friend of mine who lives in England competes in a winching competition. From the pictures he has shown me and the descriptions of the events he participates in, ANY American manufactured winch doesn't stand a chance of surviving one afternoons worth of competition.
They will literally hook a winch up to a tree at the top of a hill and LIFT the entire vehicle a hundred or more feet to the top without stopping.
I've yet to ever see an 8274, or any other winch for that matter survive such a brutal use. They change out all the plastic insulators in the motors for pure mica insulators. Wire gages are literally as big as your thumb.
A few years back he was even telling me that they were starting liquid cooling the motors to keep them alive.
Take a look at the pictures and see how massive the copper conductors are.
Not saying I would pay that for the winch, BUT those that are serious do.
When's the last time anyone has seen a winch with two motors on it in the U.S.?

Quote from the specs:

I would say the standard Hornet can easily pull as a minimum 4000kg directly (hanging vertically with no support from wheels)
But this does mean you have to have twin 100A alternators and 2 batteries supplying the winch motors with enough power.

yep I agree. I have never seen a winch like this one.have watched some video of those winch comps and they are totally impressive.the drag there rigs up crazy walls. if I had unlimited money or was a retired guy with all the kids gone... id have one.

Not too bad of a replacement for the whole drivetrain.
