Not really. Its the 8K winch that HF makes direct from the original manufacturer.

MileMarker, Ramsey, Champion, the lower end models are all made by the same place in China. Not a bad winch for the money. Faster than the hydro MM I used to have ... now THAT was SLOW!

whoa there charlie, I was just stating the facts on the winch. I would hate for a first time winch buyer to have been around warn's and t-max's and end up disappointed with performance.

I've had a milemarker and I still have a ramsey. They're annoyingly slow, but neither ever failed me.

My warn had a solenoid go bad, and I also had to replace the motor.

I am not in any competitions so speed really isn't that important to me my buddy has the warn 9500 ti and that thing flies, but he has had to replace solonoids 2 times on it. I have the milemarker and have yet to have any problems with it and I used it a lot yesterday.

Just thought I'd throw in my opinion on those cheap winches. I bought a 10,000# Champion. I've been through 3 motors and I've never really put a hard pull on it. It's slower than a hand cranked winch and I could have build a better remote out of legos. Save up the money and buy a real winch, you really do get what you pay for.

go to your local Costco and it is $299.99 if they have them at your local location.
